In the heat of travels

Presentation

Yaounde is the capital of Cameroon, and its second largest country. It lies in the centre of the nation at an elevation of about 750 metres (2,500 ft) above sea level.

The city's has some fun things to see such asthe Mvog Betsi zoo (primates and lions, with a kid's playground), the Mokolo market (very big and in-your-face), Mont Febe, or maybe the swimming pools of some of the hotels.

The city centre houses government offices, some hotels, and the central market. The Bastos neighbourhood, with most homes owned by Cameroonians, is home to foreign embassies and the expatriate European community (drawn mainly from the diplomatic corps). The presidential palace and compound is in the Etoudi neighborhood.

What to see:

  • The Cathédrale Notre Dame des Victoires
  • The Basilique Marie-Reine-des-Apôtres
  • The Cameroon Art Museum
  • The Cameroon National Museum
  • The Palais du Sport

Yaoundé has also nightclubs and restaurants.
