Travels in Timbuktu, Burkina Faso

& Other West African Lands


by Tan Wee Cheng


Voodoo Kingdoms & Dodgy Places is intrepid traveller Tan Wee Cheng’s latest collection of travelogues and third in the "Dodgy Places" series.  Follow him to West Africa, the land of Timbuktu, the very epitome of remoteness, and of the enigmatic voodoo kingdoms in Benin and Togo. He was mobbed by former child soldiers in Liberia, caught in a riot in Burkina Faso and chased after desert giraffes in a Nigérien taxi. He watched mysterious Dogon sacred dances in Mali and attended a voodoo ceremony in Benin where the gods searched amongst the audience for someone to “rape”.

Tan Wee Cheng is a self-confessed travel junkie who has been to over 200 countries and territories over the last two decades. His first three books were The Greenland Seal Hunter, Hot Spots and Dodgy Places and Exotic Lands and Dodgy Places (revised edition of The Greenland Seal Hunter with significant new content, stories, photos and maps), published by Marshall Cavendish.
