Cameroon, Africa in miniature
Cameroon is an unique country situated at the Central Africa Region surrounded enormous wealth of culture and nature.
It is one of the wealthiest African countries. It has oil resources and favourable agricultural conditions. But, like other less developed countries it faces serious problems. Over 80% of the population works on the land and the country produces many agricultural products for export. The principal commercial crops are cocoa, coffee, tobacco, cotton and bananas. There is a large aluminium refinery which produces 16% of all the aluminium in Africa. This refinery consumes 70% of all the electricity produced in the country! We would like to refer to our websites. Look also on www.bradtguides.com/cameroon.
The high and still active volcano of Mount Cameroon is there to satisfy trekkers and climbers with its spectacular peak and lava fields. Also the rocky Mandara Mountains of the North, home to some remote villages and the mountains of the North West province, are there to be explored and when exhausted from these adventures, the coastal towns of Kribi and Limbe are waiting with palm fringed beaches and refreshing ocean waters to ease the limbs and to revive your system with some lovely Makossa music making you wonder why this destination has been overlooked so long by tourists.
