Located in the Gulf of Guinea, Cameroon lies at the intersection of West Africa and Central Africa. The north of Cameroon is dry and contains vast savannas, whereas the south is home to dense tropical forest. Cameroon is extremely rich, both ecologically and culturally. It contains more than 200 ethnic groups, and a particularly high biodiversity.

It is one of the most geographically diverse countries in Africa, comprising three major zones: the northern savannah, the southern and eastern rainforests, and the north-western hill region near Nigeria. Because of its great geographical and cultural variety, Cameroon is sometimes called ‘Africa in miniature’. Cameroon’s valuable rain forests contain a number of species of trees, including oil palms, bamboo palms, mahogany, teak, ebony, and rubber. Wildlife is diverse and abundant and includes monkeys, chimpanzees, gorillas, antelope, lions, and elephants, as well as numerous species of birds and of course reptiles and amphibians. Sweltering rainforests and strutting sultans, game parks and grilled chicken: Cameroon is one of Africa’s most naturally and culturally diverse countries. Mt Cameroon is not only West Africa’s highest mountain, but is also the only active volcano in Africa.

Explore the rain forests of Cameroon with Exo Terra. During these expeditions, three new reptile species have been discovered. The data collected has contributed to the scientific and conservation communities, broadening the knowledge and assuring the future of reptiles and amphibians. A better understanding of their behaviour in the wild enables our research and development teams to get a better understanding of their needs and captive maintenance requirements.
