5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sierra Leone (Bradt Travel Guide) 18 mars 2010

Every place and address/phone number were correct. We met some Hungarians on Banana Is. & told then of our Bradt guide. They smiled & pulled out their own copy, agreeing on its usefulness! We took the cheaper option on the Island & were pleased with the choice. We had a pristine beach all to ourselves. I do hope SL gets its infrastructure (roads, electrification, water/sewer) upgraded. The counrty has much to offer. Too much is still potential. Bradt is a great guide.

Completely indispensable. Lots of valuable practial information that reaches far beyond Lonely Planet's and Rough Guide's West Africa guides. Great suggestions for hotels or restaurants you wouldn't look at without a hint from the Bradt guide. All you need to know about free camping on the beach.

But: There's been a lot of change in-country since this edition went to press in 2009. Buy a local sim card and call any hotel, restaurant or shop you want to visit - the guide always provides at least one number. In around a third of all cases the establishment might have been closed or changed location.

The background part has no less than 120 pages - quite a lot, I would have preferred even more _practical_ information instead. I feel that the war in the 90s gets even too many pages - as if the authors wanted to show off their research. The maps are rather bad; Lonely Planet does that much better.

The tone is easy to read, professionally cool and entertaining. Style and content are somewhat better than Bradt's Ghana guide of the same year. The book disappointed me only in rare cases (for instance, they mention a taxi ride as an alternative to the usual boat trip from airport to town, but don't give any price).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is pretty much THE travel guide for Sierra Leone 20 janvier 2012
Par R. Nielsen - Publié sur Amazon.com

You aren't going to find many other travel guides devoted only to Sierra Leone (and not West Africa more generally). I think every single foreigner I met in Sierra Leone used this guide like a bible. Frankly, there aren't many tourist attractions in Sierra Leone, but the guide does a good job of explaining how to get around, as well as some cool facts and places to visit that even the locals won't think to mention. The guide probably could've done a better job explaining different kinds of street food and parts of it seemed geared at terrifying rather than reassuring travelers, but those are tiny complaints. From my experience, most of the phone numbers, addresses, and even prices for food, travel and lodging were relatively current. The maps of Freetown and outlying cities proved invaluable, since I hadn't bothered to buy a separate map. There are a lot of decent guest houses, internet cafes and restaurants not listed in the book, but the guide provides a great starting point.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great resource for an area that has very little coverage 19 janvier 2013

I return to Sierra Leone every year and have found this guide to be accurate and helpful, especially with information that is just plain hard to get anywhere else

To quote another review "You aren't going to find many other travel guides devoted only to Sierra Leone (and not West Africa more generally)". Thumbs up to Bradt for keep writing guides on destinations, the others(tm) does not cover. As there is no other guides avilable, there are two possible explainations why "very single foreigner I met in Sierra Leone used this guide like a bible" though - it is exeptionally good or they have no alternative. I think it is a good combination of both. I am the proud owner of the Bradt guides to Sierra Leone, Somaliland, Ethiopia, Algeria and Albania and the strongest side of the Bradt guides both in genereal and the Sierra Leone guide in particular is the background information chapter. Despite this it tends to be at least one customer review from travelers complaining about a poor historical review (you can have a look at for instance the Algeria guide as well if you want to se an example of what I mean). I suspect the explaination is a combination of that the audience of this type of travel guides have both a lot of knowledge and perhaps a slightly different focus.

The Bradt guides tends to be weaker on the road than in the pre-planning phase. This holds true for the Sierra Leone guide as well. I pretty much recogice the experience that many places in the guide does not exist anymore. One of the restautants that I visited had been vlosed for several years and a local enthusiast was in an early planning phase to reopen it. The only drinks you could have there was things he sent one of the boys to town to purrchase and there was no food. It was a sunny day and great just to sit outside in the sun. It would not have been any alternative inside though, as they had no furniture yet. The reason why the place was still in the guide, was that the so called update took place as the reviewer called them up and asked them if the place was still open, they answered "yes, of course" and that was that. This is of course not the only "update" of this type. Especially on places outside Freetown and the beaches, you should do like suggested in one of the reviews (and as the reviewers of the new edtions do;) - purchase a local sim card and call ahead.

Another thing that never stops to amaze me is how determent the Bradt guides is on including useless maps in their guides. Over all these years I have never come across a map that can actually can be put to any use. Not that it is that big deal, more or less like certain traits of an old friend that I long ago have learned to disregard, I don't let it ruin my day in any way. But wouldn't it be fun and meaningful for the publisher as well, to start afresh and publidsh maps that actually can be put to use?

Have a nice trip to Sierra Leone!
