Original Touring Africa Diary – Cameroon: the north

We entered Cameroun at the very north at a small border town called Kerawa, it was getting late so we hunted around for customs, only to find out that they couldn`t stamp the carnet. So we headed off towards Mora in the dark, after crossing a few overflowing rivers we found Mora and what seemed to be the the only hotel in town. A few hours after we arrived, two ford fiestas pulled up full to the brim with crap and 5 brits. To our surprise they were part of the Africa Rally Challenge and had made it to the north of Cameroun in 15 days from London, www.battlestarafrica.org is their website.

After visiting the Sunday Market in Mora, on Monday we headed to Waza national park, where we were greeted by a beautiful landscape, giraffes, jackles, topis and other antelopey type things. We spent the night in the camp at the gate in the rain. The following day involved a short drive and a rather long hunt for a bush camp in the very beautiful hilly area just south of Maroua. The next day we headed for Garoua, read the next post to find out all about this hell hole.
