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 only established standalone guidebook to Ghana includes authoritative history and wildlife sections, updated accommodation and restaurant recommendations and a wealth of background and practical information. Africa expert Philip Briggs has overhauled the structure, maps and content to reflect broader changes in the Ghana travel scene over the past six years or so.

Philip Briggs has been exploring Africa since 1986. He has visited more than two dozen African countries and written about most of them for specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa and Wanderlust. He still spends at least four months on the road every year, usually accompanied by his wife, the travel photographer Ariadne Van Zandbergen, and spends the rest of his time in the sleepy village of Bergville, in the Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg region of South Africa.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

Excerpt from previous edition
Situated on the thin strip of land that separates the shallow Benya Lagoon from the Atlantic, Elmina is a fascinating and strikingly attractive small town, at least the equal of nearby Cape Coast in terms of historical sightseeing, though often overlooked by tourists in favor of its larger neighbor. The town started life as a fishing and salt-producing village roughly 700 years ago and, despite having served as first the Portuguese and later the Dutch headquarters in West Africa, an overgrown fishing village is basically what Elmina remains today, the rich harvest of the surrounding ocean supplemented by the production of salt from the brackish lagoon. Back in its economic heyday, however, Elmina lay at the heart of the West African gold trade.
