Looking for guidebook Benin-Togo-Ghana-Burkina

Looking for guidebok for Benin, Togo, Ghana and Burkina
13 years ago, November 29th 2008 No: 1 Msg: #56020  
Good afternoon,

I am looking for recommendations for a good travel guide book covering Benin, Togo, Ghana and Burkina Faso. The book should be published recently, i.e in 2008 or at least in 2007. The Lonely Planet Westafrica, for example, is from 2006 (i.e. written in 2005) and therefore too old.

We want to travel hese countries in February 2009 by car from Niamey where we are living.

The book can be in English, French or German.

Can anybody recommend a guidebook ?

Thanks, that's a very good hint. I thought there must be a recent guide book on this region!
