To reach the Bandjoun Chiefdom, follow the signs on the N4 but if you feel lost do not hesitate to ask your way to any pedestrians, preferably in French.

As soon as you pass the massive entrance gate, there are winding paths bordered by fences enclosing banana trees leading to a succession of renovated traditional huts surrounding the habitat, the women’s huts. The large hut at the end of the path was once the residence of the Chief.

The Chiefdom also contains a museum featuring accessories of the old chiefs and the heritage of the family including statues ornamented with pearls, jewelry, masks, dancing hats, paintings, furniture, and hunting trophies.

The Bandjoun Chiefdom is the largest Chiefdom of the West region and it’s truly worth a visit to understand the culture of the Bamileke people. Check out my Instagram (IG: kelledstyle) for more pictures :-)
