Diversity of environments and people defines Cameroon. Undoubtedly a little rough around the edges, it nonetheless offers experiences that are hard to find elsewhere. Captivating cultural practices blend with remarkable wildlife encounters - both rife with challenges, but still richly rewarding.
Standards in Cameroon are markedly different to elsewhere in Africa and there are very few established properties or operators. However, after a successful group tour that departed in December 2018, we are now offering tailor-made trips to the central and southern regions. We will be repeating our group tour in December 2020.

A Little More About Cameroon
The south of Cameroon boasts tropical rainforests and deserted golden beaches, whilst the northern parts are dominated by lakes, savannah and great expanses of desert. Volcanic mountains and game-viewing areas are scattered throughout the country, offering ample opportunity to observe some impressive wildlife, including lowland gorillas, leopards, lions, elephants and chimps.
Additionally there is a rich cultural heritage found in ancient tribal kingdoms and forest pygmies. A lack of prosperity ensures that the infrastructure is at best haphazard with roads frequently washed away after rains.
However, these minor inconveniences - all of which add to the adventure - are more than compensated for by experiences that unfold and the genuine welcome of the friendly population.
