I'm planning to volunteer in Limbe for a month anytime between July and September. As I heard the rainy season is between June and September I was wondering which would be the best time to go. Is the rain getting worse the later it gets or is there a different pattern ?
On a different note, which other month would you recommend out of the whole year ?
I will be spending three weeks in Limbe, Debuncha Cameroon. Needs a local to take me around while there. Any suggestions??????
I am thinking about working in bastos, yaounde.
My salary would be around 3,000 us dollars if i got the job. Is it okay to live in yaounde?
I heard the things are pretty expensive there (for exmaple, rents) and I really want to save as much as I can.
I'd really appreciate any comments about the cost of living in yaounde!
We want to climb the mount cameroon with a guided tour. Do we need to bring our own tent, sleeping bag,...or is this provided bij the tour agency? How cold can it get during the night in this time of year?
What if a 14 year old or younger canadian's parents don't have a passport? The 13 year olds is getting a visa to go to cameroon
we (m+w, 33+30 years old) want to do a trekking tour in the ring road region for a couple of weeks. we would like to find a local person with a mule or another animal which could carry our stuff. the person should know the region, accompany us and, in case, negotiate for us with the local people. it doesn't have to be a professional guide. we just want a local person to be with us, so it's easier to connect to the people there.
we have two main questions:
1) do you have any experience with trekking in the ring road region?
2) what would such a person cost per day?
thank you very much for your tips and ideas! :)
Hi I'm a white, British girl and i just wanted to ask... What education is there in Yaounde, Cameroon for 16 or 17 year olds? Would i have to pay for education there? And would i need a visa to live in Cameroon? Any advice or answers... ThankYou.
I'm going to be studying abroad in Cameroon for four months and I'm trying to figure out what type of luggage to bring. Initially I was going to take a large rolling suitcase, but now I'm thinking I should take a travel backpack as I'll be moving between cities while I'm there. Any thoughts?
Hi, I have a sponsored child of 10-year old living in the Mozogo Council Area. I want to send her a gift. What do you think is appropraite? I have some ideas in mind:
1. Drawing book with cartoon (but she may not familiar with the characters?)
2. Folding papers (would paper be something rare that should be used for writing instead of being "wastered" to fold?)
3. stickers (again, should I get her cartoon or just anything cute?)
I want to avoid hard feeling of others but still give out something that can cheer up kids whom they enjoy. Thanks.
Hi, I wondered whether anyone has any tips for what to see in the area around Buea and possibly Bamenda? I will be there for a couple of weeks from 11th May to the 26th. Would be hugely grateful for any suggestions. Best, Ben
what attractions in limbe would interest some one from USA
I am planning on traveling to Cameroon in February of 2013 and would like to climb Mt. Cameroon and then head up to the ring road. Does anyone know of the best way to travel from the area of Mt. Cameroon up to Bamenda (car, train, bus)? And what is the safety like in this area...I notice it looks fairly close to the Bakassi Peninsula and wanted to be sure it would be ok to make this journey. And how much time would be necessary to see all of this...3 days to hike, one day to travel to Bamenda and then maybe 5 days in the Ring Road area?
I appreciate any advice you have. Thank you!

Im 19 and looking to get a visa into cameroon for a trip im doing with my school. I know that in both cameroon and the US the age a legal adult hood is 18, but some Visa Application sites say that untill you're 20, you have to apply for a visa as a minor. Is this true? If so do i still have to appy for the Visa as a minor if i'll be 20 when i go, but 19 when i appy? If so is thier a loop hole where you dont need parents signatures?

I am going to Cameroon in February for just over a month. I will be based in Yaounde, doing some volunteer work for an organization there. I also hope to see as much of the country as possible, but I am hearing that it's really hard to get around, so I might not end up having the time to go everywhere. Also, I am a solo female who only speaks basic French (and doesn't have a lot of money to spend).
Suggestions for can't-miss destinations, and/or any other considerations I should be aware of?
Hello - I am the (youthful) 62 year old white American woman who has traveled the world alone... On
Dec 7th I posted my concerns about traveling solo in Cameroon, and I received a couple of very helpful replies. One gentleman said he thought it should be okay, but suggested that I rent a car with a driver to accompany me on my journey. I think that sounds like a great idea, and may be the solution to my concerns. I've tried Googling the possibilities for finding such an arrangement, but I'm not quite sure how to decipher the results. Can anyone recommend a specific company, or place to look for renting a car & driver. (BTW-I plan on traveling mainly in the two western provinces, as I do not speak French.)
Can anyone ease the mind of a worried mom? whose daughter will be traveling to Kumba, Cameroon with other Medical Students this May, 2012. Any advice will be greatful. What to bring and packing advise will be greatly appreciated.
She is so excited and can't wait to get there and see the country and meet the people and live the culture.
Hello - I am a (youthful) 62 year old white American woman who has traveled the world alone - but my last trip was 6 years ago (so I'm rusty). Initially I thought Cameroon would be a fine place for me to resume my travels (I love Africa... been there about 8 times - 6 different countries). But the more I Google Cameroon, the more risky & dangerous it sounds (kidnappings, violent assaults, rapes, murders!). So now I am hesitant (and frankly scared). But if I could communicate with even one woman who has recently traveled there alone, and says it's okay - then I would still definitely go.
Anybody out there who can advise me if it would be OK for me to go (I've been planning for February or March).
All best, lpfaye
