From the exciting and cosmopolitan city of Yaoundé in Central Africa, you will have the opportunity to explore more of Cameroon's history, culture, and daily life.
Though there is an extraordinary amount of incredible Cameroon landscape to be covered, over the next seven days you will have a chance to explore the best of North Cameroon. One of the biggest parks in West Africa, Waza National Park, is a part of our adventure and is an incredible highlight to experience. Only a few kilometers from the borders of Nigeria and Chad, the park is a UNESCO reserve with an incredible variety of flora and fauna. The protection of this park has been in extreme focus since its inception and continues to be so today.
Experience the famous peaks of Rhumsiki within the Mandara Mountains and much more over the next week. The tour involves plenty of driving that offers a great opportunity to take in the Cameroonian landscape. This week, you can look forward to spending quality time with locals in their villages and exploring the art of different handicrafts that many of them are experts in.
Access to potable water and sanitation in Cameroon within the context of Millennium Development Goals (MDGS). ... In 2006, 70% of the population had access to safe drinking water and the coverage in urban centres is 88%, significantly better than the 47% in rural areas.
The park looks different depending on the season, but for wildlife the best time to visit is during the dry season between December and March when all Waza’s residents gather around the few remaining waterholes to get shade and water. Don’t be put off by the extreme heat and the monotonous and parched landscape as this time is a rare opportunity to see herds of elephants, giraffes, gazelles, hyenas and – if you’re lucky – lions.
