Zoological sights in Cameroon
- Sort by:
This zoo is one of the better ones in West Africa. Co-run by the UK-based Cameroon Wildlife Aid Fund (CWAF, www.cwaf.org) it has a sizeable collection of native primates, including gorillas, chimps and drills, mainly rescued from poachers and the bushmeat trade. Well worth a visit, the zoo also houses a few lions, hyenas and a smattering of birds, snakes and lizards. A shared taxi to Mvog-Betsi should cost around CFA200.
