Learn about wildlife and relax at Limbe Botanic Garden, a popular recreational area at the foot of Mount Cameroon. Spanning over 52 hectares (128 acres), the garden features several well-marked trails leading through abundant wildlife--sorted and labeled--as well as a small zoo with gorillas, red-eared guenons, Preuss monkeys, and chimps. Created in 1892 by a group of German horticulturalists, the area originally served for the acclimatization of new plant species as well as an agricultural training center for Cameroonians; today it includes a variety of native orchids, aquatic plants, and Cameroonian wild fruits. Informed local guides will provide detailed knowledge about every plant. Prepare to encounter some curious monkeys, and look for the century-old trees along the river.

  • It's was different to what I had expected but enjoyable none the less.
  • This is a very nice place to have a good time. Really quiet and away from all the noise.
  • The right place for picnic and research
  • A place that should be supported by all. The task of conserving nature and plant species is not an easy one in an increasingly urbanised city like Limbe.
  • The perfect place to get a feel of nature
