In a part of the world where you truly depend on your guidebook, the Rough Guide is designed to work as a life support system and cultural companion whether you're here on business, taking a short holiday, or on an overland trip. Covering the entire region from Cape Verde to Cameroon, the Rough Guide finds off-the-beaten path attractions and writes up facilities in places that are barely on the map, as well as giving you practical advice on how to survive -- and enjoy -- cities such as Lagos, Abidjan, Dakar and Yaounde. The Observer, London: "Informative, erudite, useful and insightful." Financial Times: "The best guidebook."
