Route through the 2 most fascinating regions of Cameroon; the jungle zone of the East and the Sahelian North. The trip has been designed to discover an Africa different from the one the traveler may have already visited. The itinerary runs through the last virgin tropical forests of Cameroon, discovering the Bantu peoples and the Baka pygmies who continue to live by hunting and gathering, and continues through the Faro Valley, territory of nomadic tribes, and the Vokre Mountains, a refuge of the last animist peoples.

Ngaoundéré

The city maintains its old medieval atmosphere around the Lamido Palace (Sultanate), the old quarter, where some traditional adobe houses survive, and the old colonial market.

Ethnic groups of the Faro Valley

One of the most fascinating peoples in the region 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 discover the architecture, sacred forests, and customs of the Dupás, who continue to cling to their ancestral way of life.

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.

Last clans of traditional Baka Pygmies

The Baka pygmies have a special relationship 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.
