I didn't see many animals in Cameroon. Because my guide changed the itinerary, I had only one full day of nature watching in the Lobéké National park, plus a couple of hours on the days before and after that.

The one thing to mention are the many huge trees that you see along the roads everywhere. Even on the road from Douala to Yaoundé are areas with very large trees.
