What travellers are saying
- A place not to be missed when visiting Kribi. Take the 2nd exit which takes you right in front of the cascades and no need of a pirogue. Place is magic and low key. Nice fish restaurants in front of the cascades but better to book in advanceWritten 25 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I had a great two-day hike Mount Cameroon with Queen Tour. Francis was a very knowledgable guide and communication with Simo was easy and smooth. Simo was very helpful in organising everything before the tour and even met me in Limbe the day before. We went up to Hut 2 (Fako Ecolodges) on day one and then started early on day two (3:30) to get to the summit by sunset. The lodge is super comfortable and the views from the summit are amazing, fully recommend it!Written 25 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Mefou National Park is a protected area located near Yaoundé, the capital city of Cameroon. The park covers an area of approximately 100 square kilometers and is home to a variety of wildlife, including several species of primates such as chimpanzees, mandrills, and colobus monkeys.
Within the Mefou National Park, there is a monkey sanctuary run by the Ape Action Africa organization. The sanctuary provides a safe haven for rescued monkeys and other primates that have been orphaned, injured, or confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade. The sanctuary is open to visitors who can observe the primates in their natural habitat and learn about the conservation efforts to protect them.
Visitors to the sanctuary can also take guided tours and learn about the daily care and feeding of the primates, as well as the efforts to rehabilitate and release them back into the wild. The sanctuary is a popular destination for tourists who are interested in wildlife conservation and primate behavior.
Overall, Mefou National Park and its monkey sanctuary are important conservation areas that provide a safe haven for endangered primates and contribute to the preservation of Cameroon's rich biodiversity.Written 7 April 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. In the middle of a pristine forest, you'll find this amazing waterfalls! This is where Greystoke the legend of Tarzan was filmed in 1982. It will leave you breathless. You only hear the noises of the falls and the forest. A true jewel. If somehow they manage to exploit it, they'll make tons of money but it will surely lose its charm!Written 26 January 2022
- Must visit if you are in Yaounde, it costs only 5000 XAF for non-residents which includes a very knowledgeable and very helpful guide (English and French speaking). Small collection and not extremely well maintained but very interesting, highlights include traditional musical instruments from around the country, a modern African art room and a tiny Egyptian collection donated by the Egyptian embassy. The building and grounds themselves are also impressive as it acted as the former presidential palace before the newer one was built.Written 29 October 2020
- My daughter and I had an awesome experience touring the Foumban Royal Palace and Museum. Because it wasn't very busy, the two of us had our own personal tour guide which enhanced our experience. Unfortunately, most of the artifacts had already been moved to the new museum next door which will open in the near future, but the information and historical anecdotes that the tour guide provided really made up for a lot of it. Learning the history of the kings going back to the first king in 1394 up to the current king who took the throne just a few months before in December was great. We had the added thrill of getting to see the King as we were there on a Wednesday and that day as well as Friday(?) are the two days that he sits on the front steps of the palace and the locals come and pay their respects. Don't know if I will have the chance to go back and see the new museum but I am hopeful. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and if you are ever in the area and have the opportunity, you really need to go.Written 25 April 2023
- Well kept trails and the area was quite huge with lots of interesting trees and vegetation. On one end they had a military cemetary holding local soliders from WW1 and WW2. The river ran along one side of it and it was very pretty. I would suggest going in the morning or evening as midday was rather hot.Written 7 February 2023
- I just went around Bonanjo to have my car washed.... while waiting I decided to go in and check the place out. They are very welcoming. The artwork there is really beautiful. I was rich i would have gotten at least a painting.
They also have a library upstairs. It is just a beautiful place to go check out.Written 7 August 2018
- Had a great time strolling through the park with a very knowledgeable and dedicated guide. Worth the visit, for the cause, the stories behind these rescued animals...and the café has great food and drinks!!!Written 5 March 2018
- We stopped on a whim and found the museum quite interesting. Although small, it had a variety of ancient and well kept pieces. Worth a visit! The setting is serene and peaceful.Written 8 November 2019
- My visit to the Maritime Museum was so beautiful. After looking for a place to visit in Douala, I thought this museum could be an option. With my staff we had great fun especially with the experience we got in the secret roomWritten 4 December 2019
- A must see...hidden behind the grand stand on the main street. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Lots of interesting artifact and the oral history given provided so much more depth. Check it out for yourselfWritten 7 August 2019
- Great monument to visit and learn more about Cameroon’s history. I am very happy I stopped by to visit it.I lived most of my life in Yaounde and never had the opportunity to visit this monument until recently, and I am glad I did. The tour guide was great and knowledgeable about the history of the monument and the Country. I wish and hope it is thought in our schools as well. The only thing I deplore, is the cleanliness of the premises, there is room for improvement. It would also be good to have a book available for sale at the end of the visit, about the monument for those who would like to take a souvenir.Written 3 January 2023
- The beach itself is just average. Some areas have lots of litter and trash on the shore. You can get great grilled fish in the area. Also they periodically have local ocean canoe races which are fun and is a fun party atmosphere. It's overall a fun place but it's not very pristine and located near a busy section of town.Written 7 February 2023
- Beautifully organised area, full of colors and designs. You will need to speak a little french too. A good translator might be available easily.
