Points of Interest

Foumban is very interesting to visit for 2 reasons - firstly the Sultan's Palace (a museum) and secondly the artisanal work.

There isn't a better example of sophisticated traditional Cameroonian culture anywhere else in the country. However, it is important to note that Foumban is INTERESTING - not beautiful.


Don't believe all that the guide books say about accommodation in Foumban.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Interesting Sultan's palace and craft work
  • Cons:Need to check out accommodation thoroughly, need to plan transport carefully, and watch out - everyone wants some of your money.
  • In a nutshell:Careful planning is the key to enjoying Foumban.
