Why Cameroon?

Cameroon is a beautiful African country with a stable government, very friendly people and great wildlife. It is refreshingly different than the mass tourism you find in Kenya and Tanzania. Cameroon is referred to as “Little Africa” as it inhabits a huge diversity in wildlife (elephants, giraffes, gorillas, hippos etc.), climate (savannah to rain forest), culture (>275 ethnic groups), and geography (coast, mountains, rivers, lakes, etc), which can be found throughout most of Africa’s tourist hotspots.

As one of the most culturally diverse countries on the continent, its people include ancient tribal kingdoms, Muslim pastoralists and forest-dwelling pygmies.

The country is a treasure for its native styles of music, distinct cuisine (vegetarian friendly) and for its successful national football team.

And as a matter of distinction, you will not find any McDonalds in Cameroon!

 

Weather 

The mean temperature ranges from 72° to 84° F. Most of our tour itineraries stay in the northern part of the country where the dry season starts in Nov/Dec and goes until May, with slight variations on location.
