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 ?
Rough Guide for West Africa published 2008 has current and good information. Bradt travel guides also has books on for these countries Happy travels
Thanks, that's a very good hint. I thought there must be a recent guide book on this region!
I have found something like this: <a href="http://www.e-bookstore.co/Travels-in-Ghana/Marie-McCarthy/B004C44LUK/SEARCH">www.e-bookstore.co/Travels-in-Ghana/Marie-McCarthy</a>
I hope that will help you. There are more books on that site just type in anything in search box.
