Description

The first dedicated English-language guidebook to an emergent and largely unspoiled ecotourist destination otherwise overlooked by the travel publishing industry. Peaceful and politically stable, Suriname is one of the world's five most thinly populated countries. Its Caribbean coastline is famed for its peerless turtle-watching opportunities, while the interior is swathed by a vast tract of pristine Amazonian rainforest rich in wildlife and accessible only by air or along the tropical waterways that incise the interior. The guide will include a detailed introduction to the diverse wildlife and intriguing history of the only former Dutch colony in South America, along with detailed regional coverage of the tropical coastline, the historic inner city of the culturally diverse capital Paramaribo (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the thrilling opportunities for exploration afforded by the Upper Suriname River and elsewhere in the jungle-swathed interior.

Author Biography

Philip Briggs, the world's most experienced and respected writer of guidebooks to Africa, is now turning his attention to South America, and has selected Suriname as a destination on which to focus. A professional writer since 1991, Philip cut his teeth with Bradt as the author of the first international guidebook to South Africa to be published after the release of Nelson Mandela. He brings to this new project a vast and unique experience of researching pioneering guidebooks to countries which, like Suriname, are otherwise practically uncharted by the travel publishing industry, having authored the first dedicated guidebooks to Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, Rwanda and Somaliland.
