About Zaina Lodge
Zaina Lodge, situated on an escarpment inside the eastern border of the Mole National Park, offers guests an experience unique in West Africa. The Lodge combines luxurious accommodations, international-themed dining, cultural interactions with surrounding communities, and the opportunity to approach some of the park’s 400 wild African elephants and myriad other wildlife on foot. The Lodge opens in July, 2015.
The Lodge elegantly blends a safari sensibility with modern amenities. Each free-standing tented suite includes a private bath containing indoor and outdoor showers, closets and vanities, with an exterior faced in native stone harvested from the Lodge site. Each air-conditioned chalet rests on a Malian tile floor and incorporates sliding glass doors and glass windows. West-facing doors slide open to a broad, private verandah overlooking the Park and Zaina’s two waterholes. The hand-carved furniture, personal refreshments chest (replenished with ice and drinks daily by Zaina staff) and other furnishings reflect the craftsmanship of local and regional artisans. A hand-constructed thatched roof framed with sustainably raised plantation teak overarches each suite.
The main lodge design is Malian architecture in keeping with local designs and boasts one of Ghana’s largest open-air thatch roofed buildings, approximately 60 feet at its apex. The lodge consists of three levels that descend the hillside, all designed to maximize the view of the sunset and the savannah extending to the horizon. From the infinity pool, guests may look down on two waterholes recently constructed at the base of the escarpment to improve wildlife habitat in the park. Visit Zaina Lodge.
