Whilst there are several times of the year to choose from, July is seen as the time to fly to Cameroon, however, it is possible to get good deals throughout the year. If you are looking for warm weather when you arrive off of your flight to Cameroon then January is statistically the hottest. July is historically the period with most rainfall.

With rainforests, deserts, wildlife parks and beaches, the West African country of Cameroon has much to offer intrepid tourists; adventurous travellers book flights to Cameroon to see some of the best that Nature has to offer in Africa. The country is still not a major tourist destination, though the industry is growing fast, so travellers can get a glimpse of the “real Africa”, both in its large towns and in the more deserted countryside.

Geographically, the country packs much interest into a small space. The northern parts are largely savannah, the western parts contain large mountain peaks, while the east stretches out towards the Congo Basin. The coastal region has some stunning beaches, with golden sand, palm trees and almost guaranteed sunshine. But to merely laze on a beach would be to miss much in this stunning country. The wildlife parks offer a chance to spot many of Africa’s big game: elephants, lions and giraffe abound. Its towns have a French colonial style. Douala, the arrival point for all Cameroon flights, especially, is vibrant and active.

How long is the flight to Cameroon from the UK?

Flights to Cameroon from the UK will take approximately 9h 45m. However, there are many factors that will affect your flight time, including the number of stops, the airport from which you depart, and more. The main international airport in Cameroon is Douala International Airport, which is located in Douala, Cameroon’s capital and largest city. Some airlines also fly into Yaoundé, which is smaller than Douala and located in central Cameroon.

Which cities offer direct flights to Cameroon from the UK?

Unfortunately, there are currently no direct flights to Cameroon from the UK. However, there are numerous cities that offer flights from the UK to Cameroon with one or two stopovers. Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow are just some of the cities. You will also find three of the London airports offering flights to the African nation, including London City Airport, London Gatwick Airport, and London Heathrow Airport. You will also be able to choose from a wide range of airlines, including Turkish Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Swiss Air, Air France, KLM, and others. A flight to Douala from Birmingham aboard Air France with a single stopover will take 9h 45m. A similar flight with Brussels Airlines will take 10h 10m. A flight with two stop overs may take as long as 13h, and if you choose a flight with three stopovers, it may take 27h 30m.

What is the best way to get around Cameroon?

You’ll find several ways to get around in Cameroon during your stay. Internal flights are offered by Camair-Co, which is the country’s only airline, and will get you from Douala and Yaoundé to Maroua or Garouna. You may also be able to rent a boat in some areas, but most are just motorized canoes. You can also take a bus within any of the main cities to other urban centers. Most buses are privately operated. However, if you want more control over your visit, you may decide to rent a car – rental agencies including Avis are available in most major cities. There is also a national train service that runs from Yaoundé to N’Gaounderé, from Yaoundé to Douala, and from Douala to Kumba if you prefer.

What are some things to do in Cameroon?

While most of Cameroon is wilderness, there are plenty of things to see and do in the nation. Mefou National Park is one of the top attractions, as is the Limbe Wildlife Center. You may also enjoy a visit to the Musee Maritime de Douala. The Ekom-Nkam Waterfalls are always stunning, particularly during the rainy season, and Mount Cameroon presents a mild challenge for anyone hoping to get in some hiking. The Museum of Civilization and Cathedral of Saint Pierre et Saint Paul are also worth visiting.

Do I need a passport to fly to Cameroon from the UK?

Yes, you will need a passport to enter Cameroon from the UK. It must be valid for six months from your date of entry, as well. In addition, you will need a visa. The cheapest option with one entry costs about £241.80 and is valid for up to 90 days.

Cameroon climate

From November to February, southern Cameroon is dry and mild. You will probably see some rain from March to June, but the majority of the wet season takes place between August and September. Temperatures in the rainy season average just below 27 degrees, and the rest of the year usually sees a drought-like lack of moisture.

What is good to know if travelling to Cameroon?

  • Yaounde is the capital of Cameroon, though only the second-largest city in the country. It is home to the Cameroon Art Museum (in a Benedictine monastery), the Cameroon National Museum and the Afhemi Museum, a contemporary art museum and gallery.
  • Douala is Cameroon’s largest city, built on the banks of the Wouri River and with a port and airport. It is the arrival point for many visitors to the country. The town is vibrant and more prepared for tourists than much of the country. There is also a host of attractions to explore just outside the main town. Trek up Mount Cameroon, or along the lava flow from the last time it erupted (1999); visit the botanical gardens at Limbe, or just spend some time relaxing at the beach.
  • As with many African countries, be extremely careful what you try to photograph. Pictures of government buildings or anything military (including soldiers themselves) are not allowed. Police will take your camera and, at best remove the film or delete the photographs. They will probably also charge you a fine or even confiscate your camera. Bribery can help in trying to retrieve it.
  • If you get the chance, visit the homes of the Mugum in the far north of the country. The round huts are made of earth and grass, but are impressively intricate.
  • Also in the Far North province is Waza National Park, the best game reserve in the country. Founded in 1934 as a hunting reserve, the park was designated a UNESCO biosphere reserve in 1979. It is open between November and June, though the best time to spot animals is between March and April. There is no accommodation available, though it is possible to camp in the small village of Waza. Each vehicle that enters the park must take a guide. Some of the animals you might see include giraffe, elephants, lions, ostriches and a wide variety of birds.
