The best wildlife in Cameroon

Booking my ticket to Cameroon was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. The mountains and the forests in Cameroon stretching along the coast were spectacular. If you enjoy hiking, book a ticket to Cameroon and enjoy a trek through the forest and up the mountains. The wildlife in Cameroon is different to any other country in Africa. I finally had the opportunity to meet the big elephants for the first time in my life. Also, the gorillas, monkeys, and crocodiles were spooky out there. If you are looking to explore the African wilderness, Cameroon will be the best place to which to book a ticket.

Cameroon is ethnic and linguistic jigsaw

My ticket and stay in Cameroon were amazing. I got to see and experience Cameroon's diverse ethnic origin with over 250 ethnic groups, from both Francophone and Anglophone regions, who speak more than 250 local languages. Nevertheless, English and French are still the official languages in Cameroon. I didn't experience any language barriers in Cameroon. Moreover, from my experience in Cameroon, I’ve found that it truly is the heart of Africa, containing white-sand beaches, high mountains, large forests, and vast wildlife. As a wildlife enthusiast, there are many types of animals to see in Cameroon walking in groups around the forest such as the wild crocodiles, lions, and elephants. The weather is hot out there, and thus, before booking your ticket to Cameroon do not forget to wear light clothing. Booking a ticket to Cameroon was one of the best decisions I've made and the next time I visit, I hope to enjoy Cameroon's Atlantic sea life.

My ticket to Cameroon was Cheap, Fair, and Different

I booked my ticket to Cameroon through Air France from Charles de Gaulle Airport and the ticket price was fair. First, I arrived at Yaoundé Nsimalen International Airport. It is a very big airport full of wildlife paintings and pictures and shops from which you can buy souvenirs for your family and friends. Then, we booked a ticket to the Independence Monument built in 1960, which honors Cameroon's independence. There are lots of activities to do in the area and festivals to attend, which require booking a ticket. Moreover, the atmosphere in Cameroon is amazing, as you will learn a lot about the country and its importance in the African content. I can say that Cameroon is full of historical and cultural stories that everyone should read and acknowledge.

If you visit the local market place in the town center, where local artists always meet, you can listen to exciting and traditional Cameroonian music. A ticket to a music festival in Cameroon is essential, so don’t miss out!
