From the arid savannas of the Sahel to the lush primeval forest, from the black beaches of volcanic sand to the majestic peaks of the Mandara Mountains, ‘Africa in Miniature’ fully keeps its promise of variety landscape and geographical.
But the real treasures of this generous land are the more than 200 ethnic groups that populate it.
Like the Hidé, with characteristic calebasse headdresses and the Baka Pygmies, in symbiosis with nature. Or the Koma, custodians of ancient traditions and animist rituals, and the Musgum, with their raw earth howitzer houses.
