Continuing our look at the best 100 hikes the world, we turn to a mountain which is known locally as Mongo ma Ndemi, meaning ‘Mountain of Greatness’, and is West Africa’s highest peak -the mighty Mount Cameroon…
Mount Cameroon is West Africa’s highest peak at 4,040m. An active volcano which last erupted in the year 2000, it has a rich and diverse landscape of desert, mountains, rainforest and savannah and there are several different trails on the mountain for hikers to explore.
Cameroon is often known as ‘Africa in miniature’ because it has a bit of everything in terms of landscape– and there are over 200 languages spoken. KE Adventure Travel’s Cameroon trip includes a four-day trek up Mount Cameroon, taking in a luscious forest before reaching a world of craters and steaming fumaroles. Ideal for those seeking the road less travelled.
