Friendly, safe and inexpensive, Ghana is an ideal destination for first-time visitors to Africa. It is rich in little-visited national parks, forest reserves, cultural sites and scenic waterfalls and blessed with bleached white beaches and the lush rainforest of the Atlantic coastline. Updated throughout, this revised guide includes authoritative history and wildlife sections, accommodation and restaurant recommendations and a wealth of background and practical information. Written by Africa expert Philip Briggs, it provides unrivalled detail and knowledge of this little-visited nation. This sixth edition is the first time the book has been updated by the original author since the 3rd edition. Philip has more than 20 years experience writing travel guides to Africa, and has overhauled the content to reflect broader changes in the Ghana travel scene over the past six years or so. This has resulted in a new look guide, with better maps, revised structure, along with the usual routine updating of all locations covered.
