When I started running up hill, I was not getting far. Weather was too mixed in Buea. It takes some time anyway, at least five to six hours (if you are sprinting uphill for the Mount Cameroon Race of Hope!). Anyway, slower or faster, next time higher luck.

As a novice hiker, I didn’t know what to expect and was not the athletic type. Nevertheless, Mt. Cameroon is a must see when you visit Cameroon. In light of this, we... More

HADY has provided delicious food, great company, and quality guiding services in general all three times I have climbed Mount Cameroon with a group. Whether with my elderly parents, semi-fit friends, or super-climbers, they are great! Walters Chin has been especially helpful in arranging for lodging, picking us up in the mornings, and generally making everything easier in Buea. It... More

The hike itself was gorgeous, climbing through lush and vibrant rainforest. I saw many enormous trees, beautiful... More

This review is long over due. I came home to Africa for the first time during the month of December with my wife and mother. The main highlight of my trip was to climb Mount Fako (Cameroon) with Peter and Marcel. I read great reviews and also wanted a great cultural immersion. I was in constant communications with Peter before... More

He picked me up at my hotel in Douala, organised transport to Buea, where he organised transport and accommodation. He then took me to the summit of the mountain and back with no problems, and it...
