Book Description

30 May 2006 Bradt Travel Guides
Transport options are a particular feature, including long-distance connections to neighbouring countries, river trips on the River Niger, and camel trekking in the Massif de l'Aïr and Tènèrè desert regions, home to the nomadic Tuareg people. This guide covers both ends of the developing travel market for Niger: upmarket travellers looking for background information as a supplement to a tour, and budget explorers with a need to know all the practicalities.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very comprehensive Guide book 27 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Brandt Travel guide on Niger is an excellent piece of writing! It is easy to use, very informative and dispells some of the myths of travelling in Niger. However, it is dated (2006) and does not cater for the various threats to the South-East and West of the country and as such needs a revision.
Despite this, I can warmly recommend the 'Niger' guidebook for anyone intending to travel or stay in the country for any length of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best on Niger 11 Aug 2007
By Robert Potter - Published on
I am a former Peace Corps volunteer who served for two years in Niger. Ms. Geels has captured the heart, soul and understanding of this wonderful country in her new book. It is full of extremely useful and accurate information, written in a clear, user-friendly way. The maps alone are worth the price of admission. Ms. Geels tells many illuminating stories, as well giving excellent background information and history of the former French colony. In addition she Introduces the reader to the kind and generous Nigerien people and its warm and unique culture. I'm planning a return trip to Niger this coming year and couldn't imagine traveling there without this book. Thank you Jolijn Geels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Niger :The Bradt Travel Guide 26 Nov 2006
By sarajane mace - Published on
In the last year i've travelled twice to Niger and each time i've found jolijn's book a tremendous help. Its thoroughly researched, the maps are great and all the interesting tidbits make for fascinating reading. As a solo female traveller i had no problems at all going off the beaten track armed with the bradt guide. Definately the best guide book i've ever used !!
