Overall Guide : It is quite an agreeable african town! The most amazing attraction in the area is the Mefou National Park. It is a refuge for a wide range of apes. Cameroonians are really friendly and the country is relatively safe. Some... more roads are unfortunately not well maintained. The city is rapidly changing (for the good).
