Ecotourism in Cameroon

Cameroon is called mini-Africa...having a bit of everything. Black and white sandy beaches, tropical rainforest, savanna, highlands, national parks with wildlife etc. With wars and tension going on in surrounding countries, people refer to Cameroon as “the island of peace”.

Traveling in Cameroon is rewarding challenge. The hospitality of the Cameroonian people and their rich cultural heritage is absolutely worth a visit.

Kwa Kwa Guesthouses

In 2003, the house on the foot of the Forg Hai waterfall was built for BIMEHC’s first international volunteer.

Many visitors stayed at her house to enjoy Babungo and its beautiful and restful environment.

Friends from the Dutch Embassy in Cameroon were frequent visitors and they came up with the idea to set up the “Kwa Kwa Guesthouses”.

What started with one pleasant and comfortable house in the bush, is now a spacious area with five bungalows where one can enjoy the spectacular views, beautiful sunsets and....relax.

With he presence of solar energy panels (in combination with AES Sonel government energy and a stand-by generator), the famous Cameroonian power cuts are history for BIMEHC.

Two impressive water projects are providing clean and sufficient water. Even in the dry season there is no water shortage.
