Top Highlights

Untouched Wildlife

As far as safari tourism is concerned, one could easily assert that Cameroon has taken the lion’s share, with modern parks and reserves, and a magnificent fauna over the country once called the heaven of birds. There are seven national parks in Cameroon, with the most interesting and properly maintained one being the Waza Park in the Far North Region. These parks have a good variety of animal species found in Africa.

Real African Taste

Just like the society, the Cameroonian gastronomy is a mosaic of flavours, whose development is provided by a rising class of well trained and experienced local restaurateurs. Social support networks among kin and friends are held together symbolically with gifts of cooked and uncooked food. In Cameroon, the food is as vast and beautiful as the country itself which is why it is known as the land of a thousand flavours.

Ancient Traditions

Cameroon is full of different customs and traditions. A lot of diversity can be observed in the way of life, the folklore, the religion, housing, and culinary habits. The oval houses of the Massa people in the north are unique in design in the world. The historical artefacts that abound in Cameroon are a testimony of the creative nature of the people, while the monuments and other vestiges of past events attest to the colonial history of the country.
