I am currently preparing for a trip from Yaounde in Cameroon to Odzala NP in Congo Brazzaville. The most logical route seems to be through Mbalmayo, Sangmelima, Djoum, Gribe and cross the border at Moloundou. However, looking at google maps I can see that this is a super isolated part of Cameroon. Likewise there are no reviews nor blogs about travelling through this part of the country. Does anyone have any idea (or tips) on whether its possible to travel through that area? Is…
we are thinking about visiting Cameroon with this plan:
- Arrive in Douala
- To Bangem
- Walk to Twin Crater Lake
- To Kumba - walk to Barombi Crater Lake
- To Limbe
- Rainforest and mangrove trail in Limbe
- Wildlife center
- To Douala
- Depart Douala.
Is this feasible or is it too much driving? We travel with public transport.
Q: Any advice on nice places to stay in or near Limbe? Can we go straight frim Limbe to the airport?
Anybody know whether it is possible to get visa for Cameroon at the Cameroon embassy in Addis Ababa on the same day?
How long it takes to issue visa to Cameroon, how much it cost and what are the requirements?
I just had an amazing experience volunteering with chimpanzees at Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center in Cameroon. Sanaga-Yong rescues chimpanzees from horrific abusive situations and from the illegal wildlife trade.
They need volunteers to stay for at least 6 months to do diverse work including helping with chimpanzee care and feeding, washing fruit, cleaning cages, assisting with facilities and fence maintenance, overseeing use of project equipment, painting, buying food and supplies in town…
I was just wondering, if someone has experience with travelling in central africa alone as a woman ?
I ll leave for Cameroon in a few months and I like to visit as many places as I can, however before I'd like to check with someone who's been to San Tome, DRC, Gabon or equatorial guinea?
Thanks for your comments and help!
I'm traveling from Bangui, RCA to Paris, with a stop in Yaounde. I still have some Francs left and want to change them into Euros, which is difficult in both Bangui and Europe. Is there a way in Yaounde transit to exchange the money?
I'm travelling to Cameroon later this week and will be working for most of my visit. However, the airline I booked my flight with recently called to tell me that my departure flight has changed from leaving from Duoala to leaving from Yaounde. Given this, I now need to travel between the two cities and am looking for something to do on the way. I will have a full day (the day of my flight) and possibly an afternoon the day before to get between the two cities. I was thinking of…
it has been some time now that a proper trip report was posted here on Cameroon. Therefore, I hope the info on my journey through the (North-)West and South of the country can be of use for those being interested in going there. Unfortunately, the North and Far North of Cameroon are currently off the map for tourists due to the Boko Haram campaign, which is a pity, but there is still much to explore in the South and it feels pretty safe.
As a guidebook I used the German-language…
I'm trying to decide where to go and it feels like my head is going to explode because I just can't make up my mind...decisions, decisions...
I visited Rwanda, DRC and Ethiopia last year and the experience convinced me that I should indeed see more of Africa.
At first, I thought that I might try Uganda, but have since moved my interest to West Africa.
I'm mainly interested in experiencing Africa rather than ticking off the sights. I would also like to explore some of the region's…
