Adventure Tours Near Nigeria
Near to Nigeria there lies the possibility to roam off the beaten track and partake in a very special West African experience. After taking in the spectacular rainforests and mountains along the coastline of Cameroon, we head for the glorious Bamenda Highlands and the far-flung kingdom of Esu for a voyage into the heart of African identity - the ancestral village community.
Add some fabulous highlights to your trip by opting to hike up Mount Cameroon or visiting Korup National Park to marvel at the local wildlife.
This region, though not far from Nigeria , has its own unique charm. We visit Limbe, a friendly fishing town which boasts a wonderful Wildlife Centre. You can see their chimps, gorillas, monkeys and other primates, who have escaped the dangers of the bush meat trade.
Your Journey Begins in Limbe
Limbe and its environs are full of treats. Stroll the botanical gardens, climb Mount Etinde or take a 3-day hike up vast Mount Cameroon. Sample freshly barbecued fish on Down Beach and explore the daily and weekly markets.
Quick Stop in Bamenda
We will then travel for a day and a half until we reach the Bamenda highlands. Remaining there for one night, we will set off for Esu the next day, along the ring road with its stunning views.
