Introducing Tamale

If the northern region is Ghana's breadbasket, Tamale is its kitchen. If you can take the heat, you'll discover a town with some good food, charm and a whole lot of soul. (If you can't, don't panic: Mole National Park is generally cooler.)

Tamale's population is largely Muslim and there are several interesting mosques around town, notably on Bolgatanga Rd. The National Culture Centre is a lively place, with craft shops and regular dance and music performances.
