Advantages Good weather, good accomodation
Disadvantages The huts in the Mt. Cameroon could be better
Buea is a town that is located at the foot of Mt. Cameroon in Central Africa.Once you get into the country through the Douala international Airport, it takes about an hour of driving to get to Buea.It is located in the Anglophone part of the country so the language spoken there would be English.The town is the capital of the South west Province which is one of the ten provinces in the Republic of Cameroon.Moving around the town is quite easy for you could easily get taxi cabs and the roads are all tarred.
Lodging is easy get and it is relatively cheap.Check out The Lady L Hotel in Molyko,Buea and a nightly stay would run you only about £18.If you are looking for a more expensive lodging you can head down to Limbe(half an hour drive from Buea).It is a town located at the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and you could check out the FINI hotel or the hotels at Mile 11 in SEME beach.Mt Cameroon
There is a Mt Cameroon race of Hope which is ran yearly in the early part of February.It is a race sponsored by Guinness Cameroon and it draws quite a crowd.It is an internaional race, though it is mainly won by the locals who know the terrain better.After you attempt a climb up this mountain and back you would really be amazed at how the athletics manage to accomplish the same fit at under 5 hours.
