Travel writer says the country is great for Britons visiting Africa
A travel expert has recommended that people planning adventure holidays contemplate taking a trip to the west African country of Ghana, as it is an ideal "introduction" to the rest of the region.
Philip Briggs, who has written tourism guides for the leading travel book company Brandt, said that the country is a great destination for people from Britain.
"[The country] provides a great introduction to west Africa, it is one of the safest countries in the region, English is widely spoken and it has a good mix of cultural and natural attractions typical of the region," he said.
"It is also very affordable and pretty easy to get around."
One of the biggest tourist attractions in Ghana is the Unesco World Heritage Site of Cape Coast Castle, which was built by Swedish merchants during the time of the slave trade.
Mr Briggs has written or co-authored around ten Brant travel guides, including ones showing off the sights of Ethiopia and Ghana, as well as one on the wildlife of east Africa.
