Though Cameroon tourism is a minor industry but it is growing steadily in the recent years. The government of the country has put in a lot of effort to boost up the tourism industry in Cameroon.
The Cameroon government encourages tourism in the country by projecting it as “Africa in Miniature”. Many hotels, restaurants and guesthouses have grown over the years to offer good accommodation facilities to the tourists. The poor transport system of Cameroon is one of the main causes behind the ill developed tourism industry of the country.
The wildlife in Cameroon is attracting a number of tourists to visit the place. It is ideal for safari-goers as they would find wide variety of wildlife in the forests of Cameroon. The major tourist attraction of Cameroon includes:
- Waza National Park
- Cameroon Art Museum
- Afhemi Museum
- Hotel Akwa Palace
- Joseph-Francis Sumegne, La Nouvelle Liberte
- Place du Gouvernement
- La Pagode
