History[edit]

Landscape[edit]

Flora and fauna[edit]

There are many different animals, including monkeys, in the reserve. However, unless you are lucky you won't see them.

Climate[edit]

Get in[edit]

The road is dirt, and very bad. It might look a short way on the map, but it takes a while. Buses do go to the village just outside the reserve, or you could take a 4x4 vehicle. But, be wary during the rainy season, you could easily get stuck for days.

Fees and permits[edit]

You are required to pay a park fee, hire a nature guard (he or she will have a gun), and probably a guide as well. Total should be around 10000 to 15000 CFA for all three.

Get around[edit]

You'll be walking, there are no other transport options in the reserve.

See[edit]

Pygmy villages, you could pay to see a traditional dance.

Do[edit]

Buy[edit]

There isn't much to buy, or many options.

Eat and drink[edit]

Best to take your own food if picky. Some of the locals may cook for you if you ask (~3000 CFA).

Sleep[edit]

Your two options are camping or staying in the village just outside the reserve.

Stay safe[edit]

It's best to go with a guide who knows the area and can advise on all the above. Contact a tour company (e.g. in Yaoundé).
