  • Flat tyres

    When you’re travelling around Cameroon by public transport you certainly once come across a flat tyre. The condition of most of the roads is dramatically bad and the condition of many vehicles is even worse. So flat tyres or cars that won’t start are part of the all day life.

  • How we are living in Cameroon

    HEllo ,I am actually in Cameroon right now, working in Yaounde as an engineer after graduating in the USA.I can guarantee that the weather won't be a problem. Besides, you can always go to the beach in Kribi or in the north to visit Mont Cameroon and it should be sunny there.Honestly Cameroon is the last country in wich you could complain about the...

  • Talk to the people

    My most favorite experiences where the ones that involved talking to the people that lived there. If you're in a village people will look at you because you are different but most of the time they are curious and the way to break the ice is to just say hello, good morning, how are you... Village life. I stayed in a village for a month and I'll...

  • Trekking The Bamenda Highlands

    Trekking in the Bamenda Highlands from Mbingo to Belo, Belo to Lake Oku, Lake Oku to Afuah, Njinikom Plataeu, Fundong to Abuh or Abuh Forest to Lycom Palace. The options are endless, the sights breath taking, the wildlife and birds endemic and and the chance that your friends will ever do and see such things pretty small!

  • Always have some small change

    Money is often a problem in Cameroon. Don't expect that your credit card is accepted everywhere. Most of the shops don't. ATMs are rare and if you find one it might be temporarily out of order.So the best is cash. Either you bring dollars or preferably euros or traveller cheques to exchange. But ask for small bills. If you buy something most people...

  • Kousseri, crossing the border

    Not many travellers pass the Kousseri border to Chad. So in Kousseri we saw only local people and didn't met any foreigner.One of the reasons are the safety problems along the road from Mora to Kousseri. Along this route we didn't encounter any problem, except a few kids throwing stones to our truck, after we refused to give them presents.It was...

  • Kousseri, it's hot at midday

    We were in Kousseri, the most northern bordertown in Cameroon, at midday.It was amazing how many people walked in the mainstreet, at the hottest time of the day !But most of the people were sitting in the shade, looking at what's going on in their town (like our truck parked nearby in the shade), chatting and looking after their trade, many big...

  • Kousseri, bordertown

    Kousseri is the bordertown at the Cameroon side of the border with Chad. After crossing the Logone river you are in Chad. From the border town Nguele at the Chad side it's only 7 Km to the capital N'Djamena.We arrived at the office of the authorities in Kousseri just before 12 am and heard the office is closed till 2 pm, so we got an unexpected...

  • Impressive herds !

    Travelling in Cameroon and other West African countries, I was always very impressed by the giant herds, I saw everywhere in the country-side.The zebus, the wide-horned cows are allready very impressive theirselves. But often I saw huge herds with those zebus, but also mixed with goats, sheeps and sometimes even donkeys and camels. Everytime it was...

  • In which century do we live ?

    When you see the traditional huts and transport by donkey, travelling in the countryside in the north of Cameroon, you can imagine that this is how people allready lived for centuries.It looks like the time stands still .....but when a local car is passing by at the road behind or you see the local people in a cybercafe in Kousseri, half an hour...

  • Traditional huts between Waza and...

    On our way from Waza to Kousseri, the bordertown with Chad, we didn't see hardly any larger villages, only some scattered huts along the road. The traditional huts are made of mud and have thatched roofs. By the use of these natural materials, the huts form an perfect unity with their surroundings.I always wonder how the people can survive in these...

  • From Waza NP to the border with Chad

    From ''Parc National de Waza'' to the border with Chad is 150 KM. This part of our route seemed to be disreputable, because of armed robberies. So we had to drive together with two trucks and did have only one necessary sanitary stop.The landscape was rather flat, with some sorghum fields, marshlands and drier savannah-like parts. The route was not...

  • West of Maroua

    Travelling from Rhumsiki to Maroua we drove first through the wonderful mountaineous area around Rhumsiki. Approaching Maroua the landscape became more flat and green.As everywhere in the north of Cameroon in the rural areas, we saw a lot of herds of wide-horned cows (sometimes mixed with goats and sheeps) along the road.

  • Maroua, dry riverbeds

    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.

  • Waterpump west of Maroua

    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...
