Roughly 10 days in CAMEROON

My wife and me (around 70 y.o.) want to visit the more beautiful places of this country. Please, may you advise about the cities, NP, or other nice parts to visit? Which local Tours are the best? We live in Europe (Barcelona, Spain): To arrange the visa and papers need a lot of time? More interesting: is it possible to cross the border to CHAD, by land or by flight? It should be perfect to visit these two close countries.

Thanks for any advice!

Trekking in the ring road region

we (m+w, 33+30 years old) want to do a trekking tour in the ring road region for a couple of weeks. we would like to find a local person with a mule or another animal which could carry our stuff. the person should know the region, accompany us and, in case, negotiate for us with the local people. it doesn't have to be a professional guide. we just want a local person to be with us, so it's easier to connect to the people there.

we have two main questions:
1) do you have any experience with trekking in the ring road region?
2) what would such a person cost per day?

thank you very much for your tips and ideas! :)

10-year old children in Carmenoon like what?  (3 Answers)

Hi, I have a sponsored child of 10-year old living in the Mozogo Council Area. I want to send her a gift. What do you think is appropraite? I have some ideas in mind:
1. Drawing book with cartoon (but she may not familiar with the characters?)
2. Folding papers (would paper be something rare that should be used for writing instead of being "wastered" to fold?)
3. stickers (again, should I get her cartoon or just anything cute?)
I want to avoid hard feeling of others but still give out something that can cheer up kids whom they enjoy. Thanks.

And how much time would be necessary to see all of this...3 days to hike, one day to travel to Bamenda and then maybe 5 days in the Ring Road area?
I appreciate any advice you have. Thank you!

Headed to Cameroon for 1 month  (2 Answers)

Hi all,
I am going to Cameroon in February for just over a month. I will be based in Yaounde, doing some volunteer work for an organization there. I also hope to see as much of the country as possible, but I am hearing that it's really hard to get around, so I might not end up having the time to go everywhere. Also, I am a solo female who only speaks basic French (and doesn't have a lot of money to spend).
Suggestions for can't-miss destinations, and/or any other considerations I should be aware of?

Solo woman traveler has concerns...  (4 Answers)

Hello - I am the (youthful) 62 year old white American woman who has traveled the world alone... On
Dec 7th I posted my concerns about traveling solo in Cameroon, and I received a couple of very helpful replies. One gentleman said he thought it should be okay, but suggested that I rent a car with a driver to accompany me on my journey. I think that sounds like a great idea, and may be the solution to my concerns. I've tried Googling the possibilities for finding such an arrangement, but I'm not quite sure how to decipher the results. Can anyone recommend a specific company, or place to look for renting a car & driver. (BTW-I plan on traveling mainly in the two western provinces, as I do not speak French.)

Solo woman traveler has concerns...  (7 Answers)

Hello - I am a (youthful) 62 year old white American woman who has traveled the world alone - but my last trip was 6 years ago (so I'm rusty). Initially I thought Cameroon would be a fine place for me to resume my travels (I love Africa... been there about 8 times - 6 different countries). But the more I Google Cameroon, the more risky & dangerous it sounds (kidnappings, violent assaults, rapes, murders!). So now I am hesitant (and frankly scared). But if I could communicate with even one woman who has recently traveled there alone, and says it's okay - then I would still definitely go.
Anybody out there who can advise me if it would be OK for me to go (I've been planning for February or March).
All best, lpfaye

Almost all the travel guides I've checked says the Airport Departure Tax (aka embarkation tax) for international flights is CFA 10,000 payable at the airport. A friend in Cameroon says this tax has recently been increased 9X to CFA 90,000!
Can anyone confirm or refute this?

Also if anyone has been specifically to the Korup Rainforest Ecotourism Organisation, any references on the group would be much appreciated.

Thanks for any help.
