The Republic of Cameroon serves as the crossroads of Africa. It is situated along the western coast, right on the Bight of Biafra as part of the Gulf of Guinea. English and French are the official languages of this diverse culture.

It is sometimes referred to as a “miniature Africa” because virtually all cultures are represented, as are many of the continent’s most notable geographical features.

A visit to Cameroon may include time at the beach, desert expeditions, mountain treks, rainforest adventures, and eco-tourism opportunities to learn more about the nation’s culture.

There are four primary cultural areas to Cameroon and each has its own unique experience to offer. It is a good idea to work with a local operator to ensure the best possible time. Be sure to visit the Benedictine Museum, the National Museum of Yaounde, and the Limbe Botanic Garden, depending upon your itinerary and where you plan to stay.

If your journey takes you toward Douala, be sure to take advantage of the early morning fresh prawns and fish that come in. You can also find stunning local craftwork at the Marche de Fleurs. Be prepared to bargain for everything while visiting Cameroon, with the exception of a meal you order at a restaurant.

Cameroon is a beautiful land that is culturally vibrant. It can be a somewhat challenging experience, but it is also one that can be quite rewarding. Plan ahead for the best possible holiday if you wish to explore all that this wonderful nation can offer.
