Cameroon is a small and beautiful country just to the north of the Equator in northwest Africa. Its landscape of green quilted mountains, exotic wildlife, dense jungle and winding roads make this a fascinating destination. Travel to Cameroon with Qatar Airways and explore geological and cultural diversity first-hand.
European influences extend all over the old French colony, from picturesque little Limbe, a coastal settlement where Mount Cameroon soars in the background, to French-speaking Yaoundé, the capital. The roads outside the main towns take you into the heart of the country, and there are guided tours to explore this fascinating country.
The big attraction of Yaoundé is undoubtedly its cosmopolitan and international atmosphere, a legacy of French rule. Café society is much in evidence, and there are excellent restaurants and entertainment venues too.
The country’s positive economic growth makes it attractive to international businessmen, and the hotels are first-rate. A bold and dynamic stepping stone for the rest of the country, the city makes a good base for visitors looking for an authentic African adventure.
If you’re looking for a town that’s relaxed and has a strip of coastline to relax on, then Limbe is the place to be. It’s an English-speaking settlement with the peak of Mount Cameroon in the background, so the ‘African’ feel here is much more pronounced than in the country’s capital.
For a taste of the local cuisine, try out some of the country’s dishes, combining a healthy mix of plantains, rice, cassava and cocoyam.
Hiking and walking are popular in Cameroon, and great activities to undertake while exploring the indigenous wildlife, such as the apes in and around the town of Mefou. Fly to Cameroon and discover a country diverse with mountains, forests and an attractive coastline.
