West Africa - Guinea (Chapter)
This is the Guinea chapter from Lonely Planet's West Africa guidebook.
Guinea's spectacular landscape hosts rainforests and some of the world's few remaining tropical dry forests. Hikers will love the waterfall-rich Fouta Djalon plateau. Matching Guinea's natural beauty is its vibrant culture and strong tradition of music and dance.
