Ghana 1:500,000 Travel Map (International Travel Maps) Reviews
This is certainly the best most detailed map available for Ghana. It is quite large, with each side of the large map only covering half of the country ... but it shows even small remote villages that have no electricity, water or sewer or even passable roads. But as many have written, much of Ghana has never been accurately mapped ... most of the "civilization" is close to the southern coast and when you travel north, much of the mapping is a bit of guess-work ... so I suppose that the map has the best available "guess-work". It is certainly worth buying if you plan to travel in Ghana.
I just returned from a 7 week tour of Ghana, and much to my dismay the innumerable inaccuracies contained in this map caused me a lot of lost time. Essentially other than the major routes, the rest of the roads and paths indicated are not much more than imagination. Many smaller towns are not on this map or placed sometimes by dozens of kilometers from their actual locations. Major towns (like the booming Kasoa not far from Accra) are not even on this map.
I really like the layout of this map. It is not small. Probably that is also it one drawback. The map takes up both sides of the rather large paper. Fortunately, I was mostly interested in the southerm half of Ghana and didn't have to keep turning it over. Although the sheet is rather large and cumbersome, it does allow for greater detail, and give a sense of largeness to the country.
Very detailed and very large. I wish it were all on one side but because it is so big it is very detailed.
Saved our lives from getting eaten by lions & tigers. Really!
