General

The population of Dschang mainly speaks Yemba language  a Bamileke language. Due to its high elevation of over 1400 m, Dschang is favoured by relatively cool temperatures and attractive scenery. It is therefore regarded as a mountain tourist resort. Since colonial times, Dschang has been an important agricultural centre. Pig production plays a major role as it is a major occupation of most natives of this area.

In early 2011, the Musée des Civilisations du Cameroun à Dschang was inaugurated. This museum offers to discover the origin of the Cameroonian people and the diversity of the country’s four large cultural domains via their history, but also their artistic productions, their architectures, and their political and social organizations.

Cameroon

Cameroon

If you board a plane or ship flying any of the international routes and ask to be taken to the heart of Africa, do not be surprised to find yourself disembarking in Cameroon.
It is a beautiful country per se, situated opposite the middle portion of Brazil, on the eastern side of the Atlantic Ocean. Bordered by six countries of which Nigeria is the most prominent neighbor,
Cameroon appears on maps like a heavily pregnant mother carrying a baby on her back. .

This peculiar geopolitical entity was created by accident and apportioned to Germany during the 1884 Berlin conference that carved up Africa.
Berlin treated German Kamerun as its treasured colony for thirty-two years until Great Britain and France captured the land during the First World War,
partitioned it into British Cameroons and French Cameroun, and then went on to lord it over the people for four decades. However,
they too were challenged by Cameroonian nationalists who campaigned for the divided territory’s reunification and self-rule. Today, English and French are the country’s official languages,
mirroring the dominance of the two Indo-European languages in Africa.

They say the gods have a design even in the most outrageous acts of mortals. If that is the case, then it also applies to Cameroon.
The country has defied so many odds in its history that the people now pride themselves with the saying that “Impossible isn’t a Cameroonian word.”

Renowned voices tend to call Cameroon “Africa in miniature”, not only because of its fanciful shape and turbulent history,
but also because of the physical and human aspects of its geography. It is the point in Africa where the East meets the West and where the North meets the South.
It is a country that features plains and mountains, plateaus and valleys, rivers and seas, lakes and waterfalls and other landmarks that mirror the rest of Africa.
The south is dominated by equatorial and tropical rainforests, the north is covered by Sahelian vegetation, and the middle portion of the country is graced with high savannah of mixed grassland and forest.
In fact, all the different flora and fauna in Africa can be found in this carelessly drawn triangle called Cameroon.
