Presentation of Cameroon

Cameroon is a country in central and west Africa, bordered by Nigeria on the west, Chad in the north, Central African Republic to the east, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and the Republic of Congo in the south and the Gulf of Guinea to the south-west.

The population is very welcoming and more than two thirds of Cameroonians speak French (the others, in the North-West and South-West regions, near Nigeria, speak English). 

The climate is tropical and desert-like. It is hot and humid in the coastal areas and in the south, especially during the long rainy season. In the northern arid areas, the climate is very hot and dry. In the southern part of the country, the dry season extends from November to February, with a small rainy season from March to June and a major rainy season from August to the end of September. The average temperature is about 26 °C. In the northern part of the country, the rainy season lasts from May to the end of September. Here, the average temperature is about 30 °C.

Yaoundé, nicknamed "the city of seven hills", is the political capital of Cameroon. It has a population of 2,440,462 inhabitants (in 2011). Yaoundé, after Douala, is the second largest city of this central African state.

Yaoundé is also the headquarters of the Centre Region and the Mfoundi Division. Yaoundé hosts most of Cameroon's most important institutions. Another nickname of Yaoundé is Ongola, which means "fence" in Ewondo, and refers to the wall of the former German post.

The city of Yaoundé, located in the south of the Centre Region, is built on a network of hills dominated by the Mbam Minkom (1,295 m) and Nkolodom (1,221 m) mountains in the north-west of Yaoundé, or Mount Eloumden (1,159 m) to the south-west. The different neighbourhoods are structured according to the rugged terrain of this city.
