In the heart of Africa

Cameroon is a country in Central Africa. However, it is very wide in latitude: bordering the Congo Basin in the south, it reaches the Sahelian shores of Lake Chad to the north.

Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the country is dominated by one of the highest mountain ranges in Africa.

The whole constitutes a very large variety of bio-geographic domains, so much so that one could speak of Africa in miniature.

This comparison can be continued in the demographic domain: while the west and the north are linked to the high densities of the countries of the Gulf of Guinea, the south and the east have the lowest densities in Central Africa.

From south to north, depending on the latitude with modulations due to the relief, the tropical climate is of three very different types: the rainfall decreases, the duration of the dry season increases, as does the thermal amplitude rises and falls. annual:

  • a humid tropical climate of altitude, around the massif of Adamaoua: the rainfall is abundant: of the order of 1,500 mm per year but the dry season is marked (from October to January in Ngaoundéré) and the temperature is moderate all year round (around 20 ° C).
  • a Sudanese tropical climate, around the Bénoué basin: temperatures are high; the rains remain abundant (1,300 mm per year in Garoua) but the dry season is lengthening (6 months in the same station). Precipitation is much more irregular (violent and brief tornadoes, effects of drying winds such as harmattan).
  • a tropical Sudano-Sahelian climate in the north: temperatures are high but with great irregularity of the rains; the dry season (8 months in Maroua) is longer than the rainy season.
