GET YOUR BEARINGS.
Let's be fair it's hot, on the whole comparably expensive (certainly to fly to) and with few noteworthy attractions. What you'll read about West Africa - the crime, disease, conflicts, poverty and lack of infrastructure - might also worry you to a certain extent. Having noted all this, many are still very much attracted to the region and what they'll find there: relatively few travelers, untraveled territory and tons of friendly African smiles.
IN OUR OPINION.
BEST PLACE TO GO.
Benin. There's tons to see, the people are delightful, it's cheap and it's clean. A close rival? Cameroon.
EASIEST TO VISIT.
Ghana, as english is spoken throughout.
NOT SO EXCITING.
