Douala in detail

Flights & getting there

Douala has an international airport with links to cities in Cameroon, around the region and to Europe. There's an Air France office in town.

Arriving from Limbe by bus, ask to be dropped at Rompoint, which is fairly central.

Buses to Yaoundé (CFA3000 to CFA6000, three to four hours) depart throughout the day from agency offices along Blvd de l'Unité such as Guaranti Express. For buses to Kribi (CFA2000, three hours, four to five daily) use Centrale Voyages.

For other destinations, use the sprawling Gare Routière Bonabéri. There are at least five departures daily for destinations including Limbe (CFA3000, 1½ hours), Bamenda (CFA4500, seven hours), Bafoussam (CFA3500, five hours) and Foumban (CFA3500, six hours).
