Globe Trekker

Cameroon (#429)

Zay Harding veers off the tourist trail to explore the Central African country of Cameroon. Here he meets many different ethnic groups - from the Kirdi of the north who predict his fortune using crabs and the hunter-gatherer pygmies of Djoum to the chiefdom of Oudjilla where he meets not only the king but also his 50 wives. In Cameroon, Zay attempts to complete the grueling and steep Mount Cameroon marathon, tries his hand at Bakweri wrestling, visits a vibrant market in Torou and comes face to face with all sorts of wildlife including hippos and gorillas.
