Top 5 Digital Travel Guides to Explore Ghana (Black Authors).

1. Romancing Ghanaland: The Beauty of 10 Regions

“Kofi Akpabli is a journalist and an author who has travelled across Ghana. He has written on the culture of a lovely people; their lifestyles and environment. When he was voted for two years running by CNN as the Best Arts and Culture writer in Africa, he knew he owed the land of his birth a special duty. For nearly two years, Kofi travelled once more, across-country; engaging people, places and events to document the experience. Romancing Ghanaland brings to Ghanaian readers a beautiful testament of their beloved nation and shows the rest of the world why Ghana remains God’s own country.” –  Prof Esi Sutherland, Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana

2. GHANA: Practical Traveller’s Guide to the Gold Coast of West Africa

“This guidebook takes you by the hand and gives you an extensive coverage of a lively country…[This book] will give information on: interesting places to visit, slave castles and forts, museums, national parks and animal sanctuaries. More than 1000 addresses and practical trips on transport, accommodation and shopping. These are supported by exact maps and authentic pictures.”

3. I Speak of Ghana

“I Speak of Ghana is an honest journey of deft oration replete with the sounds (from the harmonious to the cacophonic), smells (including the pleasant and unpleasant), sights (from the eye-catching to the embarrassing), frustrations, triumphs and the mundane – everything that makes the Ghanaian experience finds its way into this book. Unlike the typical ranting about Ghanaian situations, Nana performs an insightful examination of the heart of the matter. Dissimilar to empty praise, Nana thoroughly embraces the issues that give us hope as people connected to Ghana. Narrated with humor, the book is Nana’s eloquence at its best.”

4. Tickling the Ghanaian – Encounters with Contemporary Culture

“In this book Kofi Akpabli seeks to unravel what at all tickles the Ghanaian. Is it Sunday afternoon’s after church Omo Tuo and beer, or when Ghana is ‘beating’ its arch-rivals in sports, Nigeria? Articles in this book include the two that won him the CNN/Multichoice Journalist Award for Arts and Culture back to back in 2010 and 2011, becoming the first journalist, in the award’s history, to have won one category back to back: The Serious Business of Soup in Ghana and What is right with Akpeteshie.”

5. Thrifty Traveler’s Guide to Nigeria and Ghana on a Budget: Lodging, Transportation, Sightseeing, Dining on the Cheap Culture, National Parks, Beaches, Nightlife, Visa Advice & MORE!

“There are two neighboring countries in West Africa that you should add to your list of places to visit if you have not already visited them. I can give you a thousand and one reasons why you should move them up to the top of your list. In fact, this book is supposed to give you the insight you need to have an awesome time in both countries and trust me when I say words cannot do justice to how exhilarating the experience is.”
