The capital of Cameroon is Yaoundé, the country’s second-largest city after the port city of Douala.

Cameroon’s landscape consists of deserts in the north, mountains in the center, and tropical rainforests in the south. The Atlantika Mountains form part of the country’s border with Nigeria. The Atlantika mountain range is an extension of the Cameroon Line — a long chain of volcanoes that includes islands in the Gulf of Guinea and mountains on the mainland. Mount Cameroon is the country’s highest point, an active volcano near the Gulf of Guinea.

Nicknamed “Africa in Miniature”, Cameroon’s climate includes all the major climates that can be found on the continent. However, its two main climatic zones are tropical in the north and equatorial in the south.

Cameroon is a republic with an elected President who appoints a Prime Minister as the official head of the government.
