Tourism in Cameroon is a growing but relatively minor industry. Since the 1970s, the government of Cameroon has cultivated the industry by creating a ministry of tourism and by encouraging investment by airlines, hotels, and travel agencies.
The government describes the country as “Africa in miniature”, promoting its diversity of climate, culture, and geography. Cameroon’s wildlife draws both safari-goers and big-game hunters, as Cameroon is home to many of Africa’s iconic animals: cheetahs, chimpanzees, elephants, giraffes, gorillas, hippopotami, and rhinoceroses.
The Tourism Project is inspired by the will to empower youth to foster sustainable development. Youth are in a unique position to improve the quality of tourist products and services as a key to facilitate economic transformation and to reduce unemployment in developing countries such as Cameroon.
We realise that the catalytic role of tourism in Cameroon and Africa in general cannot be underestimated. In a region where a significant proportion of the population is unemployed and underemployed, the need for economic transformation is urgent. And the youth plays a vital role on achieving this, since young social entrepreneurs lead to agents of positive change in developing countries.
WebDev Live Inspired Tourism aims to give:
- The youth access to diverse stakeholders, international perspectives, good case practices and a large network of tourism potentialities, to motivate them to work on fostering industry networking through actions that improve the infrastructure capacity towards a sustainable tourism sector.
- To tourists (nationals or internationals) the possibility to experience Cameroon on their wishes, budgets and timelines. Our tours are customized to fit the clients needs and adapt to each of them.
