Idyllic scenes to savor on the coast of Cameroon
Kribi, a small beach resort by the Atlantic Ocean close to Equatorial Guinea, is the last stop of my journey through the West African country of Cameroon.
Cameroon's magic mountain
In the Northwest Region of Cameroon stands West Africa’s second highest mountain. Mount Oku, 3,011 meters high, is rural and quiet, with an isolated Himalayan feel. While visiting it, I find there's more to the mountain than meets the eye.
In this part of Cameroon, life starts and ends at the palace
“Clang! Clang!” King Fobuzie II strikes a gong as he speaks to his ancestors. “I’m telling them you are here,” he says. He is dressed in a long red dashiki and matching trousers.
United by a love of soccer
Hello Cameroon, called “Africa in Miniature” for its landscape that varies from desert to rainforest and the many different peoples and cultures who share at least 230 languages. Once split between French and British colonialists, but still ruled by traditional kings called fons, the country is united by its love of soccer.
