What to see & do

Waza National Park - Founded in 1934 as a hunting reserve, the 1,700 km2-protected area in the Department of Logone-et-Chari in the Far North Region is now called Waza National Park. It was granted the national park status in 1968, and was declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve in 1979. Waza is a prime destination where visitors can observe fascinating animals in their natural habitat, such as lanky but magnificent giraffes, graceful antelopes, large elephants, and other wildlife.

Cameron Art Museum - The Cameron Art Museum is currently located at the intersection of Independence and 17th Streets. Established in 1964, it was formerly known as St. John's Museum of Art and was housed in a small gallery space downtown. The museum changed its name and was relocated in 2001, now featuring three exhibition areas, a lecture and reception hall, space for outdoor exhibits, a clay studio, and an arts education centre.

Basilique Marie-Reine-des-Apôtres - The Mary Queen of the Apostles Basilica is a Roman Catholic basilica in Yaoundé dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Yaoundé Markets - Yaoundé is filled with markets of all sizes; there are small street-side markets, and the much larger Mfoundi and Mokolo markets.

Blackitude Museum - The Blackitude Museum is a private ethnographic museum located in Yaoundé. It was established in 2000 by Her Majesty Queen Nana Agnes, after acquiring a significant part of her father's collection (who was the traditional ruler of the Western Region in Cameroon). Other parts of the museum's collections, such as the Prehistoric Lithic artefacts, copies of original lithic tools from the archaeological laboratories in Portugal, were gotten through donations and purchased.

How to get around within Cameroon

Touring around Cameroon can be made extremely easy by arranging guided tours with reputable tour operators such as BERUDEP and Heritage Tours Cameroon, which can take care of the transportation. Train service is available from the Yaoundé to Douala and Ngaoundéré. Overnight train is considered to be the best mode of transportation aside from air travel to the north. For quicker trips, local buses make rounds around and between major cities. Car rentals in Cameroon are quite expensive but are at least an option. If travelling to the east or central parts of Cameroon, a 4WD is required. Note that paved roads are rare if travelling away from the major cities.
