I'm looking for a companion to visit the Lobéké NP in the southeast part of the country. The intended destination is Camp Djembé and its nearby forest clearings. The transport costs into the park are quite high for a solo traveller, so we can split the costs. Further no obligations.
Planned visit/stay: February/one week
Exact information after contact.
Hey Visitors to Cameroon,double your lens to read phone numbers .Cameroon dialing code is +237 so after this calling code, make sure to add 2 infront of any number starting with either 2 or 3 (CAMTEL network)(+237233333223) and others(Orange,MTN,Nextel) starting with 5,7,9 just have to sandwich 6 infront. (+237695555555)This could be important to Hotel bookers,Your Old friends etc. Though old guide books still bear only 5-6 numbers of Touristique sites,hotels,embassies,etc
is travelling in Cameroon safe for a solo women? Without hire a car with a driver? I would like to spend 3 weeks approximately from 21th of December in Africa on my own and choose a country now. In Africa I was only i Ethiopia.
Hey esteemed travelers!
My career is in desperate need of some professional French. I'm a public health in emergencies professional who can't work in any place that doesn't speak english. I really want to learn it in Cameroon/Togo/Benin, and volunteer when I'm not in class. The voluntourism programs that feature language lessons are all pretty costly, and don't really have any spots for specialists (though I'm not above doing unskilled work, too). I have about two months to go as intensive…
It was just announced these days that Cameroon decided to close its borders with Nigeria for the sake of Ebola or so....???????
This is so sad to hear but i do not know until when.
Can anyone give an example of the expected costs of travelling in Cameroon? I'm on a bit of a budget, but not horribly so. How much is a typical hotel night? Dinner? A cheap bottle of beer?
I hope to visit Lobeke national park, and maybe Korup national park as well, via public transport in three or four weeks. I do not intend to rent a vehicle (and driver) unless absolutely necessary.
I´m heading for Cameroon in a couple of weeks and am flying to Douala. I´m looking for a budget option there, is the Catholic Mission a good option? Anyone has their contact?
I will be travelling by land to Gabon and would like to know if roads get very muddy, if roads are paved in that area.. as it is the rainy season too.
Thanks in advance!
I'm considering a trip to Cameroon sometime early next year. It's long been a destination on my mind, and seems to have a pretty wide variety of cultures, things to see and places to go. The forum is very, very sparsely populated with questions and answers about Cameroon, which I gather is either because no one has any need to ask questions about the place, or no one is going there!
Has anyone been there lately? I'm just looking for a subjective thumbs up or thumbs down on the choice…
When I first visited Cameroon, about 12 years ago, there were ATMs that took cards with the Maestro symbol.
Two years ago it was impossible to use these cards, despite the fact that some banks still showed the Maestro logo.
I intend to visit again.
Does anyone have the latest on which cards can be used?
Thanks in anticipation.
