Cameroon is a diverse and multi-ethnic country in West Africa. It borders Nigeria to the west, Chad to the northeast, the Central African Republic to the east and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of the Congo to the south. While Cameroon is not the largest country in Africa, in some ways it's as large as Africa itself. Known as "Africa in miniature," it features French and English speaking portions, Muslim and Christian dominated regions, the tallest mountain in West Africa and terrain that includes rain forest, desert plains, mountains and high plateau. Western tourism is rare; most of the country's tourists come from Europe (predominantly Belgium).
