The Republic of Cameroon, often referred to as “Africa in Miniature,” is one of the most culturally diverse countries in Africa. The abundance of geographical diversity and animal life is no less amazing, displaying a kaleidoscope of wildlife and rainforests that supports an unusually high density of western lowland gorillas and forest elephants.
