From Lake Chad to the Atlantic Ocean found at some 1300 km away, you will discover:
The Far North province is characterized by its sahelian climate, large savannah plains of the Waza Park with its elephants, lions and giraffes. Farther south, at Mora-Massif, the lifestyle of the Kirdi-Moras and that of the chief of the Oudjillas with fifty wives. Going down towards Nigeria, the volcanic peak landscapes of Rhumsiki and a fortune teller with astonishing soothsaying methods. Going towards Chad, you will discover “mud huts” and also herds of buffaloes of peul shepherds.
The North province has a more humid climate and here, the savannah gives way to large forests where we find the Benoue National Park, a reserve of the biosphere and a varied fauna: hippopotami, elephants, buffaloes, wildcats, monkeys and antelopes, and all kinds of birds. Perfectly organized hunting zones enable hunters to return home with good trophies of unprotected species.
The Adamawa province, source of Cameroon’s waters, has crater lakes, thermo-mineral sources and caves.Villages have learnt to be self-sufficient and some, like Idool, have reached a remarkable organizational level. A certain number of big towns are deeply influenced by the Lamidos whose authority is scarcely questioned as in the Muslim tradition. In addition to their duties, during big yearly events, they organize colourful shows such as the Fantasia to mark the end of the Ramadan.
The Easten province is cosmopolitan with rare ethnic groups such as the Baka pygmies who are still living like their ancestors and in harmony with the tropical forest surrounding them; gold miners using rudimentary or modern methods and villages where life goes on quietly around an Iroko tree where village matters are discussed.
The Centre province is also the province of the political capital Yaounde, which has maintained the village spirit, despite its million of inhabitants. Modern buildings and suburbs are found side by side and traffic does not always flow easily because of yellow colour taxis and thousands of counters belonging to small sellers and hawkers. And, less than an hour’s drive from the capital, there is the Mefou National Park where primate orphans are taken care of.
The South province has undiscovered treasures due to lack of access roads to the forest: the pygmies, wildlife in the Dja and Campo reserves, the Mengame gorilla sanctuary at the border with Gabon… But for many visitors, the province is better known for its Kribi beaches and neighbouring waterfalls which pour directly into the Ocean.
We will end this north-south overview with an area that is not known in the coastal region: the Malimba territory, fishermen villages of Yoyo and its surroundings, and the large golden sand beaches, which are still unexploited…
To prepare this book and the video, we spent 3 years in Cameroon, assisted by many teams of the ministry of tourism of Cameroon.
