Diversity of environments and people defines Cameroon. Undoubtedly a little rough around the edges, it nonetheless offers experiences that are hard to find elsewhere. Captivating cultural practices blend with remarkable wildlife encounters - both rife with challenges, but still richly rewarding.
Cameroon is not a new destination to Steppes, but recent regional problems have set back tourism significantly, so we are not currently offering tailor-made trips. However, we feel that the time to return is approaching.
Therefore, we are planning a pioneering group tour, exploring the country in the company of one of our team members, in 2018. Register your interest here and we will be in touch once the itinerary is finalised.
A Little More About Cameroon
The south of Cameroon boasts tropical rainforests and deserted golden beaches, whilst the northern parts are dominated by lakes, savannah and great expanses of desert. Volcanic mountains and game-viewing areas are scattered throughout the country, offering ample opportunity to observe some impressive wildlife, including lowland gorillas, leopards, lions, elephants and chimps.
Additionally there is a rich cultural heritage found in ancient tribal kingdoms and forest pygmies. A lack of prosperity ensures that the infrastructure is at best haphazard with roads frequently washed away after rains.
However, these minor inconveniences - all of which add to the adventure - are more than compensated for by experiences that unfold and the genuine welcome of the friendly population.
