When I started running up hill, I was not getting far. Weather was too mixed in Buea. It takes some time anyway, at least five to six hours (if you are sprinting uphill for the Mount Cameroon Race of Hope!). Anyway, slower or faster, next time higher luck.

During my three year term of service as a Peace Corps Volunteer, I trekked with my best friend up Mt. Cameroon in 2015 for a three day tour. As a novice hiker, I didn’t know what to expect and was not the athletic type. Nevertheless, Mt. Cameroon is a must see when you visit Cameroon. In light of this, we did our research and booked our trip with, the paramount hiking group in Cameroon, HADY!! They provided the best price, food, and professional service ever!! All of our needs were met and we gained wonderful insights about the mountain’s terrain. This group is the best of the best and no other trekking group can compare.

Not only does this organization provide you with optimal service, HADY uses their profits from each tour to implement community service projects and finance their personal endeavors of obtaining an undergraduate degree.

I would absolutely recommend booking a tour with HADY. You will definitely have a memorable experience and an excellence trip with these awesome tour guides!!!!

HADY has provided delicious food, great company, and quality guiding services in general all three times I have climbed Mount Cameroon with a group. Whether with my elderly parents, semi-fit friends, or super-climbers, they are great! Walters Chin has been especially helpful in arranging for lodging, picking us up in the mornings, and generally making everything easier in Buea. It might be more expensive than other attractions in Cameroon, or than other guiding services, but Mount Cameroon is NOT the place to skimp! There is always enough water (not always true of other guiding services), and the guides are careful to leave the trail looking better than they found it.

This past weekend, I did a day hike of Mount Cameroon that I had organized through the Mount CEO Ecotourism Office. The office staff were incredibly helpful and very well-organized and provided me with a variety of different trip options to choose from. The hike itself was gorgeous, climbing through lush and vibrant rainforest. I saw many enormous trees, beautiful flowers, and several different types of butterflies. Afterwards, I felt totally refreshed :).

One of the best parts of an all-around awesome hike was my guide, Robinson. He is incredibly friendly and enthusiastic about the mountain. In fact, he has run the annual race up the mountain many times! He taught me a lot about the different plant species, including their medicinal properties, as well as about Buea, the tribes of the region, and Cameroonian music. I had a great time chatting with him along the way, and I recommend that you ask to hike with him if you are planning to come to Mount Cameroon.

This review is long over due. I came home to Africa for the first time during the month of December with my wife and mother. The main highlight of my trip was to climb Mount Fako (Cameroon) with Peter and Marcel. I read great reviews and also wanted a great cultural immersion. I was in constant communications with Peter before arriving to Cameroon. I left Douala with my family and traveled to Limbe/Buea. I had the absolute best time of my life. I stayed in Limbe and took a taxi and bus to Buea with my climbing gear. Once I arrived in Buea I met Peter at the location we spoke to prior to my arrival. I was welcomed by Peter, Marcel, and their business associates who took care of my paperwork and on boarding.

Marcel took me up initially and Peter was right behind us. Peter and Marcel treated me like their brother, they don't know this but it actually brought a tear to my eye :) They were knowledgeable about every aspect of the mountain, including the plants and the history of the people who live in the Mountain. Peter is also a POLICY WONK! He knows International Policy and has a knack for domestic and foreign affairs. Our talks walking up, resting, breakfast, dinner, and before bedtime were lively, and very enjoyable.

Marcel is an EXCELLENT cook, and maintains a very calm and peaceful demeanor. He is little quite but very engaging. We all had a good time. The climb and experience was well worth it. I highly recommend Peter and Marcel. They will not let you down. They are very business minded and really do care about their customers (Which is the first rule of business). Young, Smart, Talented, and both have extremely bright futures in Business. I can't wait until I come back to Limbe/Buea (my two favorite regions in Cameroon next to Bamenda and Oveng). Until next time guys. Much Love, and Much Respect. Your Brother -Jimmy
