This is a wonderful place (not in the zoo located in the town) but is around 1 hour outside the town. A fantastic place to see how the primates are taken care by a group of volunteers. A must and a worthwhile visit.
The place is called Mefou National Park and is situated around one hour from the centre of Yaounde. It contains 1044 hectares of forest. At present it has eight electrified enclosures housing Chimps, Gorillas, Baboons, and various species of monkeys. Mefou is the perfect setting for visitors to see Cameroon's unique wildlife in a natural environment.

Along the busy streets you find water sellers, for about 10 cfa you can get a large cup fresh water.
It isn't mineral, but tap water!

Don't take pictures of government buildings, or of anything that may be military. Any of the local militia 'gendarmes' will try to use this as an opportunity to confiscate your camera. Play along with them though, and offer to buy them a beer, and pay maybe CFA 2000 Francs. Be prepared for a long wait to get your confiscated property back.
