Introducing Douala


Located in the southwest of the country and acting as the administrative center of the Littoral (Coastal) region, it attracts attention with its cosmopolitan atmosphere. Douala was founded by the Portuguese in the 15th century as a colonial port and was known colloquially as the “armpit of Africa” owing to its location in the gulf region. After Kinshasa it is the second biggest port of Africa and 95% of the country’s import business is done here. With its tropical climate, Douala invites you for a vacation full of adventure amongst the rainforests.
