Tamale is a regional capital and the region is biggest in Ghana. Among the sites you can visit include The Mole National Park which is one of the largest game reserves in Ghana- so many species of animals can be found there.........
There is also the Mystery Stone which is adjacent to the Laranbaga Mosque- this is a special Mosque built over a century ago.
The Nalerigu Defense Wall which was built to prevent slave raiders during the slave trade can also be visited while in Tamale.
The Salaga Market is not far from the Tamale township and it was the biggest slave market at that time.
The Tamale sports stadium is also a very good site to visit.

Tamale has many craft shops, markets, restaurants and hotels. Among handicrafts of interest produced in the various towns and villages are leather goods, musical instruments such as drums, xylophones and flutes as well as the coarse hand - woven textile used for sewing the popular smock or "Batakari" dress.

The religious and cultural history of the people is depicted in old mosques found at Daboya, Banda, Savelugu and a few other towns in the region.Other historic sites linked to the slave trade are Salaga, Yendi, Daboya where the slaves were assembled and chained to baobab trees in readiness for the long trek to the coast for sale and shipment. In addition to these are the remnants of an ancient wall at Nalerigu in the Gambaga scarps which were built to protect the inhabitants from slave raiders.

At Yendi, east of Tamale, is the grave of the notorious slave merchant of the past, Babatu.

Mole National Park, west of Tamale, is one of the biggest elephant sanctuaries in Africa with vast expanses of savanna woodland, Mole is open all year round. Due to its huge size, visitors with cross - country vehicles accompanied by guides, are able to penetrate further into the park to see a wider variety of animals such as lions, baboons, antelopes, hippos and many others. The best time to visit is between December and April at the height of the dry season, when the grass is low and many of the animals in the park come to swim and drink from a pond close to the motel on the reserve.

The real thrill at Mole is the guided walks early in the morning and at dusk to watch the activities of the mammals and the birds. Birdlife is prodigious and this includes several winter visitors from Europe and the Americas.

Northwest of Tamale are the salt mines of Daboya. Salt was an important and major item of exchange and used in barter for slave. Salt mining still goes on today. Daboya is also noted for its hand woven textile which sells in the market of the Northern Region.

Larabanga Mosque & Mystery Stone:

The famous mosque of Larabanga is the oldest and most reputed in Ghana. Dating back to the 13th century, it is a picturesque whitewashed mosque in the Sudanese style, built of clay. It has wooden beams jutting out of the wall. It is an Islamic holy site and keeps an ancient copy of the Quran brought by an Arabic cleric who led the people on their migration to Larabanga that is almost as old as the mosque.

At the outskirts of the town is a legendary mystic stone which according to stories, whilst the main road was being constructed, whenever the stone was removed to make way for the construction, it always returned to its original place on several occasions.
You can take the ferry from Akosombo to the north
Depending on how the duration of your visit, there are so many tourists sites you can see and visit before you go. When moving from Accra via Kumasi, there are two possible routes you can choose from; that is either through Nkawkaw or through Aburi. When you choose to go through Aburi, there can be a stop over site at the Aburi botanical gardens, where you can see the variety of flowering and medicinal plants and also plants and trees which are of very rare spices.
Also if the trip will go through Nkawkaw, these are the possible sites on the way which can see and visit.
Lake Bosomtwi - Ashanti region
Manhyia palace ( Ashanti kings palace) - Ashanti region
Upon reaching he Brong Ahafo region, there are also so many interesting sites you can visit, namely; The monkey sanctuary and the Kintampo water falls.
Through the Brong Ahafo regions we get to the northern region where there are the famous Larabanga Mosque which is the oldest and most reputed in Ghana. Dating back to the 13th century, it is a picturesque whitewashed mosque in the Sudanese style, built of clay. and also the Mole national park, west of Tamale, is one of the biggest elephant sanctuaries in Africa with vast expanses of savanna woodland, Mole is open all year round.

First of all, Mole and the Mystic Rock are in the Upper West, the crocodile pond is in the Upper East, and Tamale is in the Northern Region.
The Larabanga mosque(oldest in Ghana) is the only one in the Northern Region.
The other sites are not so far away from Tamale and can be visited if you have the time to spare.
Mole is fun if you are into wildlife and the great outdoors.

I am in Tamale myself. I can give you a great tour or great advice if you wanted.
