Portrait
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.
