Live with the last clans of traditional Baka Pygmies
The Baka Pygmies of Cameroon have a special connection with the tropical forest and retain much of their animist culture. We will enjoy their polyphonic songs and the sacred dance Ejengi (spirit of the jungle) in this magical place in the middle of the jungle.
Discover the colonial architecture of the Germanic period
We will pass through some towns of colonial origin where some buildings from the Germanic period (1884-1916) still remain.
Expedition to the Adamawa Plateau in search of little-known ethnic groups
We will cross the territory of the Bayas, a little-known ethnic group but with its own elements of interest. We will stop at a couple of villages before arriving at the Kingdom of Idool (Fulanis), a small oasis in the middle of the Adamawa Plateau. On the way to Ngaunderé we will visit a traditional Durú village (aboriginal Adamawa ethnic group). Continuing our journey north we will witness the traditional dances of 2 cultural communities. In the more traditional mbums (animist farmers) villages they continue to preserve the masked dances. We will also have the opportunity to attend a Gerewol ceremony, a flirtation ceremony for young Fulanis.
Architectural tour of Ngaoundéré
The city of Ngaoundéré maintains its old medieval atmosphere around the Lamido Palace (Sultanate), the old quarter, where some traditional adobe houses survive, and the old colonial market.
Live unique cultural experiences with the ethnic groups of the Faro Valley
One of the most fascinating peoples in the Valle de Faro are undoubtedly the Mbororo, a nomadic cattle-raising ethnic group that preserves its traditional culture. They also maintain the custom of decorating the face and part of the body with beautiful and complex tattoos that mark the social class and marital status of the wearer. We will get to know the architecture, sacred forests, and customs of the Dupá, who continue to cling to their ancestral way of life. We will stop at a Dowayo village, an ethnic group related to the Dupá.
It is an ethnographic, architecture, history and nature journey where we will coexist with different cultural realities and enjoy unique contrasts that give Cameroon the nickname of Africa in miniature. Click here to easily reach the itinerary download form.
