Who are we
Ngong David Diangha
Africa is growing fast and more and more positive reactions on this continent appear in the media. With its 55 countries Africa harbours an enormous treasure of oil and other raw materials, but Africa also has an enormous touristic potential that so far has only been partly exploited. Everybody knows South Africa, Kenya and Tunisia but most of the people are not aware of the touristic potential of Cameroon. Cameroon is also called “Africa in miniature”. It has great cultural, ethnic and geographic diversity. 20 million people of more than 250 ethnic groups speaking approximately 200 different languages comprise the population of Cameroon. Many of these ethnic groups have preserved their age old original traditions, dances and art.
