REFERENCE

Cameroon Political Map

Cameroon has a very central geographic position in all of Africa. In fact, some consider Lobeke National Park in far southeastern Cameroon as the center of Africa.  On the other hand, it’s also like a hinge because it’s at a deflection point at the Gulf of Guinea. It borders six other countries. This includes Nigeria to the northwest, Chad to the northeast, the Central African Republic to the east, as well as Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of the Congo to the south. Yaoundé is the capital city, but Douala is the largest metropolitan area.

Then, the Cameroon Range contains an irregular chain of mountains, hills, and plateaus. At 4,040 m (13,250 ft), this includes Mount Cameroon which is Cameroon’s highest point and an active volcano. Finally, the Adamawa Plateau lies in north-central Cameroon.
