Dja Faunal Reserve, Somalomo

5.0
#4 of 6 in Wildlife in Cameroon
Still largely untouched, Dja Faunal Reserve shelters many endangered species and covers over 5,000 sq km (1,930 sq mi). A World Heritage Site, the reserve provides a safe home for apes, elephants, and chimpanzees living freely in the wilderness. Time your visit for the dry season, since the reserve remains relatively inaccessible in rainy weather. To plan Somalomo vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • The further you go into the forest the further you go back in time and are faced with men who still live only by harvest. The Baka pygmies are beautiful, smiling and affectionate with their children. Seeing them move through the forest and follow them in their various daily activities is a great life lesson. However uncomfortable experience, it takes almost an hour to reach them on foot including half an hour in the thick of the forest that is really impenetrable. If you sleep with them, take all the heat for rain (the thunderstorms are very strong) and to protect everything from the mud that is created. Still unique experience.

  • You can this jungle of only 5000 square kilometres on foot – there are no motorways! There should be park guides and wait with it, and you sleep in a tent or in a Pygmies-cabin! The jungle is huge, with rivers, huge lianas and giant trees, and there are elephants, gorillas and chimpanzees. In any case, the visit takes several days.
