Best Time To Travel To Cameroon

Cameroon is a destination with active volcanoes, sandy beaches, rainforests, hills, and plains. To avoid disruptions in your trip, a predominant rainy season shows itself from April to November with the heaviest rainfall July to August, so it’s best to avoid these months.  We recommend visiting Cameroon anytime from October to March but outside of the heaviest rainfall, Cameroon is still accessible!

Here you can visit amazing chimpanzee and gorilla sanctuaries, go on a safari in the north of the country, explore the Mandara mountains and partake in local celebrations. Visit Limbe, take a loop on the Ring Road, or buy some local handicrafts.

  • Rainy Season North: June to October
  • Dry Season North: November to May
  • Rainy Season South: April to November
  • Dry Season South:  December to March
