One of the best guide books I have read! I work in the travel industry and needed a reference book on Gabon. Being such a little known destination I was unsure what material I would find and was delighted to find that Bradt Guides had a book on Gabon. By the way Bradt always seem to have a book on little known destinations and have superbly researched books at that!
Sophie Warne excelled in this book. The background information is superb and she gives a detailed and balanced view of the country. I am now fully confident in my dealings with Gabon and have Sophie Warne to thank for that. A highly recommended read! It is an interesting bok even if one is not plannig a trip to Gabon.

HASH(0x8f01f258) out of 5 stars A must have for visitors to Gabon! 30 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I reside in Libreville, Gabon and have not, until now, been able to find much literature about this place in English ... or French for that matter. Then this little gem was published! I take this little book with me everywhere I go, I make a point of consulting it before I plan a trip, ... where to eat in Cocobeach, where to stay in Nyonie, where to shop in Libreville ... it's all in there. I found a couple of phone numbers misprinted, but aside from that, the information on each of the places I have been to is up to date, useful and correct. This book tells it like it is, the good, the bad and the ugly! I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting or living in Gabon.

HASH(0x8f01f6cc) out of 5 stars Very accurate information and well written 15 Jan. 2006

Format: Paperback
I actually only visited São Tomé and I have to say that this guide, although short, is very detailed, both in terms of the historical background and of the present. The approach is straightforward and going through the places, and talking with the people, feels very close to what is described in the guide. Sophie did a great job in capturing the county's spirit.

Unfortunately Bradt took this book (Gabon, ST and P) out of their range so could not buy new anymore. The provide pdf or ereader version instead which I don't think is very handy in the jungle. That is why I was so happy to find this book in a 2nd hand version here.
Content-wise it's really detailed, just what we need.
And for a 2nd hand version, it's in a superb condition.

Even though this book was published in 2004, it still proved to be very helpful while we were in Gabon, Sao Tomé & Príncipe. I am glad that we got it.
