Yaoundé is an exciting and cosmopolitan city in Central Africa. Our Yaoundé tours offer the ideal way of getting out and experiencing the sights, smells, and sounds of this vibrant city and its surroundings of the ever-fascinating Cam Capital.
It is one of the major tourist attractions of the Center region. Situated approximately 35 km from Yaoundé on the road to Mbalmayo, the Ebogo site is on a bank of the River Nyong fitted out for angling, hiking in canoes to contemplate the nature, especially the many species of butterflies. On the road leading to the Ebogo site, one can visit the basketwork workshops and balafon making artists. Balafons are traditional musical instruments made of pieces of sticks mounted on calabashes.
The Day tour offers a lot in terms of location, but also is very informative and provides a peek into Cameroon history, culture, and daily life. The city was previously surrounded by forest and is always in constant expansion, but still has a great climate that allows you to plan a perfect day out and about.
Yaoundé, the administrative center of the region and the political capital of Cameroon is home to several places of interest for their cultural, historical, ecological and religious values. Here, one can visit:
