The Rough Guide to West Africa in epub format is the most comprehensive and user-friendly guide to one of the world's hardest - and most rewarding - regions for travel, covering the 15 visitable countries from Mauritania to Cameroon in fifty percent more detail than its only competitor.

The introduction highlights the region's attractions and touches on its great range of cultural and scenic impressions.

More than 160 accessible and accurate maps guide you from the urban jungle to beaches and mountains. And an extensive index references every place mentioned in the guide.
