Product Description:
2nd Ed. 2013 1:1,000,000/1:1,950,000 Burkina Faso, formerly the French territory of Haute Volta, is one of those quiet countries of Africa that never seem to hit the headlines. It is typical of several of the countries of Africa that we have mapped it sells steadily, but not spectacularly, and then all of a sudden runs out of copies. We are very pleased that the Codolo family of France agreed to provide us with numerous photos and improved road information as a result of their recent trip to what is actually one of the more interesting interior countries of the continent. We have also been able to re-draw and improve inset maps of the capital Ouagadougoa and of Bobo-Dioulasso, the main trading city on the border with Mali.

Product Description:
This 8th edition of Bradt's Ghana remains the only dedicated guidebook on the market and the most comprehensive source of travel information on the first country in sub-Saharan Africa to gain independence and the world's second-largest producer of chocolate. Covering everything from Ghana's 550km of Atlantic coastline to its remote and sparsely populated northern border with Burkina Faso, this new edition has been thoroughly updated and is an ideal companion no matter what your interests are. Written by Philip Briggs, arguably the world's most experienced guidebook writer, it covers everything from inexpensive opportunities to see wildlife to cultural and historical aspects such as the slave trading posts.
Background, practical and health information are complemented by a dedicated, illustrated chapter on wildlife, 63 maps and 18 chapters split across five regional sections, from Accra and surrounds to the coast, through eastern and central Ghana, right up to the north. The popular Cape Coast and the Ashanti regions are both covered, as is the increasingly high-profile Chale Wote Street Art festival.
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. Bradt's Ghana is accompanied by a dedicated, updated website run by the author himself and caters for everyone from birdwatchers to bar-hoppers. Whether you want to cruise the world's largest man-made reservoir, Lake Volta, on a pokey old steamer, hike with elephants in Mole National Park, or party all night in Accra's glittering Osu district, Bradt's Ghana is an indispensable companion.
