Cameroon Safari tour
Safari tours in Cameroon are centered in the northern part of Cameroon. This is due to the Saharan climate here and a savannah vegetation type. The northern regions of Cameroon have rich potentials in safari but due to some security issues in the region, we don’t provide tours to national parks like Faro, Waza and more. This package includes a safari trip inside the Benoue National park and the Bouba Ndjida national park. They are both rich in wildlife.
Bénoué National Park
Bénoué National Park covers an area of 180,000 ha (444,790 acres) in size. It was first established as a fauna reserve in 1932, but later in 1968 it was upgraded to national park. It became a biosphere reserve in 1981. Its vegetation is characterising by a humid savannah woodland area. The main river flowing through the park Is the Benoue river which stretches for over 100 km (62 mi), forming the eastern boundary. The park’s altitude ranges from 250–760 m above sea level. The higher elevations are characterized by large rocky massifs, while the undulating plain and forest characterizes the lower section.
Getting there: Access to the park is from Ngaoundéré, on the National road number 1. It’s a 2 hours drive from the town of Ngaoundéré. The best time to visit is around February when the grasses are burnt to allow fresh shoots of grass. This attracts a lot of animals and improves the panoramic views.
