Africa General: 199 reviews and 348 photos


Favorite thing: During my last trip in Cameroon I was confronted with something we unlearned during the centuries. OUR SMELL, we can recognise strong and specific odours, but when my Baka (pygmy) guide stopped and told me we were approaching gorillas I thought he was joking. No way! He was right, they can smell animals. He proofed it several times during the expedition, gorillas, buffalos, antelopes, I was speechless. There are no better animal trackers than Bakas.
