Our guide, Adolf, was very informative, told us all about this fertile garden, where they preserve plant and tree species that have medicinal or other qualities. It is a beautiful place - bring long pants and bug spray.

I have visited most of the beaches on the west coast of Africa. Seme Beach is one of the most beautiful beach on the west coast of Africa. You definitely want to experience beach life at Seme beach when you are on visit to Cameroon.
