What to do in Cameroon: African Country with the BIGGEST Number of Languages Spoken

With a history that stretches back to the 16th century, Cameroon is a place that has a lot to offer. Life in this country is a vibrant mix of tradition and modernity. For centuries, the lands of Cameroon have been inhabited by different ethnic groups, each contributing their own unique culture to the mosaic that is Cameroon today.

Some places you need to visit include Waza National Park, the Great Mosque of Maroua and the vibrant city of Douala, just to name a few. And of course, don't forget Mount Cameroon, the highest mountain in West Africa.


In Cameroon, the official currency is the CFA Franc. And guess what, they speak over 200 different languages, making Cameroon the country with the most linguistic diversity per square kilometer in the world! And for us Brazilians, a visa is not required to visit the country, making the trip even easier.


But here's the part you don't know. Despite all the economic and social difficulties, Cameroon is a resilient country. Even though we are among the least developed countries in the world, the Cameroonian people continue to fight for improvement. There is hope, there is determination and there is a tireless desire to progress.

We arrived in Cameroon via Ethiopia, only visited Douala and even had the joy of playing football with local teenagers.

So, that's it, folks. Cameroon, a place where linguistic diversity is a testament to the country's rich history. Where despite the challenges, the hope and resilient spirit of the people shine.
