From the arid savannahs of the Sahél to the majestic peaks of the Mandara Mountains and the lush primeval forest, ‘Africa in miniature’ lives up to its promise of landscape and geographical variety.
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 mud howitzer houses.
