[AROUND CAMEROON] : A HIDDEN GEM IN THE WESTERN REGION

Hello people..It is Tuesday! Hope your week started on a good note….It is #TravelTuesday!

A few weeks ago me and a few friends took a road trip to Bamena in the western region of Cameroon. It was my first time to visit and all I can say in a nutshell is “I was impressed”.

Bamena is located in the Nde division 10 km from Bangangte.. There is a legend about how this community started that makes the “Goat” a very important symbol in their tradition and culture. A goat is always required for special occasions e.g. marriage, deaths, births etc…

There are many hidden gems in the West and we stayed in one of them.

This is Penko Hotel…Enjoy!
