Northern Region

The Northern Region, corresponding to the territory of an old kingdom and hence also called Dagbon, is the largest in Ghana, occupying almost one third of the nation's area. Just outside Tamale, the district's capital, lies a national park with ample wildlife, including wild pigs, antelopes, and elephants, and this tops most itineraries in the Northern Region. Bird-watching in the baobab forests, encircled by savannah and ant-hills, ranks as a experience rivaled by few places in Africa. To get the most from your trip to the Northern Region, try to visit during dry season, from July to December.
