About Cameroon

With a population of about 19.4 million inhabitants and 250 ethnic groups speaking approximately 200 languages, Cameroon has a rich tapestry of indigenous cultures that travelers will like to see. It is rich in floral, fauna, human and natural resources, as well as mountains and beautiful landscapes.
