Cameroon is a magnificent country located in west-central Africa. It features diversity in both landscape and wild-life. It is associated with very scanty rainfall and high average temperatures. The currency functional here is the Central African CFA franc. And the official languages spoken by residents are English and French. If you are planning a trip to this charming country then make sure you have Foumban, Kribi, and Maroua on your must explore cities list. You can hire a car in Cameroon to traverse distances and reach these cities.
Foumban is a Muslim-dominated city that provides shelter to the Bamum people. The Grande Marché is a market made up of shanty stalls leading to the Grande Mosquée. This market is worth visiting, especially on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The end of Ramadan is marked by a horse race and a parade. Hence, Tabaski is a good time to be in this city. Foumdan is known for the famous handicraft shops it has.
Kribi has a beautiful beach-side experience to offer to its guests, and the high temperature makes sun bathing a good experience. These beaches are associated with strong waves. You can have these beaches almost to yourself on weekdays. Take a car for hire and travel 8km. southwards to visit the majestic waterfalls of Chutes de la Lobé. The river Lobé falls directly into the sea her. This region is known for the species of sea-turtles it shelters. Carry a sufficient amount of CFA when you visit this city as there are no ATMs here.
Maroua is situated in the north near the mountains, unlike Kribi. Located near the boundaries of Nigeria and Chad, this city provides a base point for travellers who wish to explore the Mandara Mountains. You can also use the car rental in Cameroon to visit the Waza National Park, which is a UNESCO biosphere reserve since 1979 and is home to most of the exotic animals living in Africa.
If you wish to continue exploring further, you can go to the division of Ngoketunjia located on the foot of the Ngoketunjia Mountain. Tradition and culture has remained preserved here. You should also visit the Dja Faunal Reserve, which is known for the diversity of living beings it shelters. Other major cities are Douala, Yaounde and Garoua, but these aren’t much tourist-oriented. Just make sure you take a car for hire in Cameroon and explore all the must-visit sights.
