Cameroon

Cameroon holidays

Introduction

One of Africa's most naturally and culturally diverse countries, Cameroon is at the mercy of its bruising neighbouring nations making it far less visited than it might be. Conversely, Cameroon holidays are ideal for tailor-made travel.

The capital Yaoundé is built on seven hills, each covered in lush jungle. A small population of lowland gorillas inhabit Moloundou, an area just outside the city that teems with wildlife. Douala is the economic centre though, lying alongside the Wouri River in the shadow of Mount Cameroon; attractions include the craft market and the city boasts some of the best restaurants and live music bars in West Africa.

Mount Cameroon at 4,095m is Cameroon's tallest mountain and the highest active volcano in Africa. Rising straight from the sea it is a spectacular summit popular with trekkers looking to stretch their legs; it also hosts an annual race to the summit. Trekkers should also consider the Mandara Mountains where they can trek from village to village.

Wildlife holidays to Cameroon are popular with people heading to Waza National Park in search of a wide range of mammals, herds of elephants and bird species or Korup National Park, Africa's oldest and most biologically diverse rainforest, in search of primates and plants of interest.

To relax, retire to the good quality beaches along the coast, especially those around Kribi, where lively local music provides the soundtrack to lazy days on palm-fringed stretches of sand.
