    Maroua, dry riverbeds

    by sachara Written Apr 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Maroua is a town with a lot of green, like a lot of trees along the avenues. So it´s nice to walk in the centre because of the shade caused by these trees.
    The rivers in Maroua, the Kaliao and Ferngo River, have dry beds in the season, we visited Maroua, because of lack of water.
    So we wonder, why the town could be so green.

    Maroua in the north

    by sachara Written Apr 20, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Maroua (about 215.000 inhabitants) is the northernmost large town of Cameroon.
    There are facilities like banks, supermarkets and e-mail possibilities. Also you can find a nice market with a Centre Artisanal and Musée d´Art Local nearby.
    On our way from Rhumsiki to Waza we stayed a few hours in Maroua for shopping, changing money and other necessary activities. Further it´s a relaxed town to stroll around a bit.
    Maroua is also used as a starting point for visiting the ´´must see destinations´´ Rhumsiki in the west and ´´Parc National de Waza´´ in the north. There are some hotels and campements.

    Waterpump west of Maroua

    by sachara Updated Apr 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: On our way from Rhumsiki to Maroua in the north of Cameroon we needed to fill again our plastic containers with water. So we stopped at one of the waterpumps along the road.
    I always enjoy to stop at these places in the rural areas. At the waterpump the local people gather to fetch water. Also a good occasion to tell each other the last news.
    These people came by bike or brought a wheelbarrow or their donkeys to carry the water back home.

    Favorite thing: Listen to the music!
    Cameroonian music is among the most popular in Africa. You'll hear makossa, which is a popular dance rhythm blaring out from clubs and discos. It is played with everything from traditional thumb pianos to guitars and synthesizers. Sam Fan Thomas is the king of makossa music. Another popular dance music is bikutsi.
