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.
