Mount Cameroon National Park is the highest mountain in West and Central Africa and is one of the eight biodiversity hotspots in the area known as the Gulf of Guinea. With a rich, diverse, and endemic flora and fauna, the park and its surroundings host a variety of ecotourism potentials.
Stretching from evergreen lowland rain forests to sub-alpine grassland and an altitude of 4,070meteres, Mount Cameroon is an active volcano with abundant craters, crater lakes, caves, lava flows and ash fields.
The area presents a diverse landscape, ideal for hiking. The western slope is between the wettest places in the world with 10,000 millimetres of rainfall. The park protects forest elephants and Chimpanzees, and other threatened and sometimes endemic species.
