Cameroon’s tourism industry is a victim of geography. It is in a tough neighborhood, surrounded by some problem countries. But this does not get discouraged, since Cameroon has really almost everything that a traveler could want. One of the most culturally diverse countries on the continent, its inhabitants are ancient tribal kingdoms, Muslim pastoralists and forest dwelling pygmies.

The picture is no less dizzying in its diversity. Mount Cameroon (4095m) is the highest peak in West Africa and attracts a lot of hiking interest. An active volcano that rises almost straight from the sea in a spectacular way. Further north are the hills Grassfields area of the ring road, while the mountains of Mandara is a complete change again – dry and rocky, with isolated villages living. Located along this are some of the oldest rainforests in Africa, and the excellent Waza National Park, with an abundance of mammals and birds, and large herds of elephants gather in water wells in the dry season.

If all this runs out, you can retire to some beautiful palm fringed beaches and fantastic seafood, which should help to recharge their batteries. Throw in a cold beer or two, some harvest Makossa music alive and the Indomitable Lions of the national soccer team, and they are enjoying their discovery.


Yaounde, could be the capital of Cameroon, Douala, but economic power. With little in the way of tourist attractions, is a mess of dust sweltering traffic jams honking. It is difficult to estimate first, give it some time and can begin to appreciate the good restaurants of this harbor city, nightlife and a decaying tropical environment. As the Cameroonians say, ‘sleep Yaounde, Douala is moving. “


Botswana is an African success story. After getting a democratic government in 1966, three of the world’s richest diamond formations were discovered within their borders. Today, the country enjoys a high level of economic stability, education and health care, which, with the exception of South Africa, is unparalleled in other parts of sub-Saharan Africa. However, modern appearance contrasts with the fact that much of it remains a country of the brave (not to mention relatively rich) traveler. This roadless wilderness largely of open spaces takes time, effort and above all, a lot of money to enjoy.

Landlocked Botswana extends 1,100 kilometers from north to south and 960 kilometers from east to west, making it roughly the same size as Kenya or France and a little smaller than Texas. Most of the country is at an average altitude of 1,000 meters, and consists of a vast and almost level sand-filled basin is characterized by scrub-covered sheets. The Kalahari Desert, a semiarid area of ​​the valleys of sand, covering nearly 85% of the country, including entire regions of central and southwest. To the north of Botswana, the Okavango River flows from Namibia, and into the sands forming the Okavango Delta, accessible via Maun. With vast open plains teeming with wildlife, Botswana is truly Africa of your dreams. Because the Okavango Delta and Chobe River provide a supply of water throughout the year, almost all species of southern African mammals are present in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve and Chobe National Park. At Makgadikgadi and Breads Nxai National Park herds of wildebeest, zebra and other mammals migrate annually in search of permanent water and stable food supplies.

Small capital of Botswana, Gaborone (usually affectionately shortened to Gabs), is little more than a village suffering from growing pains hiking, monotony and lack of definition.
