Cameroon is home to many of Africa’s flag-ship species: lions, chimpanzees, gorillas, elephants, giraffes, hippopotami, rhinoceroses and ostriches. Cameroon has a number of national parks created with the intention of protecting wildlife and flora. In many parts of Africa it is said that the tourists outnumber the animals. Not so in Cameroon, where the visitors are limited and the parks are many and pristine.
