Jaunde - Introduction

Yaoundé is the capital of Cameroon and the country's second largest city, located in the interior of the country at the foot of Mount Febe.

The city's main attractions are the Mora market, where local crafts such as painted gourds, leather goods, masks, jewellery, grisgris (necklace charms), woodcarvings and textiles can be found. Also worth visiting are the African quarters of Messa, Mokolo and Briqueterie, the Musée d’Art Nègre and the Mvog Betsi zoo. In order to escape the heat, there are several swimming pools located at various city hotels.

A nice daytrip from the city is a tour of Foumban, where the Royal Palace is located. The palace features artifacts of 18 royal dynasties, some dating as far back as the 14th century. Also in the the town are many shops selling local crafts.

Further afield visitors can explore Cameroon's superb wilderness. Parc National de Korup is home to Africa’s most diverse rainforest. Those daring enough can rock climb Mt Cameroon. It is 4,095 meters high, an active volcano and the tallest mountain in West Africa.
