Tamale, the capital of the Northern region, is the country's fourth largest city. You are welcome to enjoy the scenic natural features, exotic culture and the legacies of a history of the largest region in Ghana..

Its geographical features are mostly low lying, except in the north eastern corner with the Gambaga escarpment and along the western corridor. The land is drained by the tributaries of the Volta Lake: Rivers Nasia, Daka, Oti, the Black and White Volta covering over a third of the whole land mass of the 70,390km big enough to swallow up other regions like Volta, Ashanti, Western and Greater Accra put together; call it the mother of all Regions!

Tamale is the nerve centre of all commercial activities in the whole of the Northern Sector of Ghana. The traditional architecture of round huts with conical thatched roofs are sights to see.
