    What to Expect
    After pick up from your hotel, the tour will start with a drive over to the Independence Monument, honoring Cameroons independence, proclaimed in 1960. Stop and walk through City Hall garden, enjoying the atmosphere as you learn about the administration of the region and the country of Cameroon as a whole.

    Next enjoy a stroll through the local marketplace, where local artists sell and talk about their art, these handcrafted pieces are rich and varied in style.

    The tour then rides towards Kennedy Avenue, where the commercial district is located as well as the famed bronze bust of John F. Kennedy. This statue was commissioned to honor JFK as founder of the Peace Corps in Yaounde.

    Then continue on to the Reunification Monument, Our Lady of Victories Cathedral, the French Embassy, national assembly, ministry of defense, and important sites such as the King Charles Atangana monument. Through all this, feel free to ask questions about the country’s complicated history, and your local guide will put it all in perspective for what it means today for locals. 

    Take a drive up Febe Mountain to take a break and enjoy a spectacular view of the city before going to Mount Febe Monastery and the grotto of Santa Maria. This area is rich in history and tradition for the city and the grotto was a place of worship designated by the Mayor of Yaounde in 1978.

    Finally, the tour will finish off with a ride through the Bastos and Nlongkak quarters. Bastos is the diplomatic neighborhood of Yaounde while the neighboring district of Nlongkak is a busy area and marks the crossroads of Yaounde’s north, south, east, and west. 

    At some point along the tour, stop for refreshments at a local bar or cafe to drink alongside locals and enjoy a relaxing chat with your guide. It is the perfect time to get the answers to any questions that you might have missed earlier during the tour.

    At the end of the tour you will be returned to your hotel around 2pm.
