We had an absolutely fabulous time and the Bradt Ghana guide played a big role in that
congratulations to Philip and Bradt Travel Guides for an outstanding effort. I couldn’t imagine visiting Ghana without that book.’

Bradt's guide to Ghana, now into its third edition, is still the only dedicated guide to West Africa's fastest growing destination for tourists and business travelers. Author Philip Briggs helps visitors discover a country steeped in a rich cultural tradition but overshadowed by a tragic slave-trade history--the slave fort at Cape Coast being just one of the chilling reminders. Imprints of cultural groups can be found across the country, including the ancient mud-and-thatch mosque at Larabanga, the singular stilt village of Nzulezu, and the Ashanti Kingdom. Ghana is an uncrowded place to go for game-viewing; Mole National Park and Baobeng Monkey Sanctuary are among the highlights.
This guide features:
--A guide to the wildlife of the country: species identification, wildlife sanctuaries, and Mole National Park--the country's premier reserve
--Accra for the business traveler or backpacker, covering a complete range of accommodations, places to eat, and nightlife
--A look at the country's culture, from Ghanian music and ethnic groups to decorated shrines and crafts, including cloth weaving
--A review of Ghana's historical background, spanning ancient empires, the Gold Coast era, the slave trade, and Ghana's development since independence
--Practical considerations: planning a trip, traveling within Ghana, its infrastructure, and health and safety advice
