About Cameroon

A coastal plain with dense equatorial rainforests occupy the south of Cameroon.

The Portuguese explored the coast in the late 15th century and called the estuary to the south of Mount Cameroon the river of prawns, or rather Rio dos Cameroes.

From 1961 until June 2nd, 1972 Cameroon was a federation of the former French Cameroons in the east, and the former British Cameroons in the west.


English and French are both official languages; although French is the more widely spoken, while English is restricted to the west.

The native language in the south is Bantu, while the tongue of the north is more Sudanic.
