Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ghana is packed with national parks, forest reserves, scenic waterfalls and cultural sites, yet is free of the trappings of mass tourism. Its an ideal destination for first-time visitors to Africa: rich in little-visited national parks, forest reserves, cultural sites and scenic waterfalls, blessed with bleached white beaches and lush rain forests of the Atlantic coastline. This only stand-alone guide caters for both the budget backpacker and the luxurious resort wallower. Including authoritative history and wildlife sections, updated accommodation and restaurant recommendations and a wealth of background and practical information, Bradts Ghana covers the country with unrivalled detail and knowledge. Ghana defeated Sudan 2-0 in Accra to become the first African side to reach the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. What better time to catch this friendly, English-speaking and hassle-free country as it revels on a soccer high?

This book is excellent! Anyone thinking of travelling to Ghana shouldn’t leave without it. I found the book to be a very good source of reference for planning journeys, finding accommodation and visiting places of interest. Another book which I found very interesting was “Greetings from Ghana” by M. J. Poynter. This novel provides a very gritty depiction of live in Accra and is full of wonderful naughty stories which kept me amused.
