Cameroon, famous for producing world-class soccer players and infectious "makossa" music, is on the dawn of becoming known for something else ... tourism.
Dubbed as the “miniature Africa”, Cameroon stands out with a genuine identity expressing diversity and stability, modernity and traditions, dynamism and calm, at once. In short, the country concentrates all the beauties of Africa in one.
This explains why people consider that nobody could really discover Africa without having visited Cameroon. Tourism arrivals grew by 35 per cent in 2012, and the country has a vast geographical diversity characterized by forest, savannah and mountains, alongside a population of over 250 ethnic groups.
It also boasts some of the richest and most diverse wildlife in the continent and is a dreamland for safari lovers, eco tourists, hikers and culture seekers. Or if you prefer the hustle and bustle of city life you can shop till you drop in Yaoundé and Douala or dance till the sun comes up in seaside city Limbe.
