Begin Your New Life as an Expat in Cameroon

Douala, Yaoundé, Garoua, Bamenda and Koussendi are the major cities in Cameroon and where most expats will head to. Both French and English are the official languages, with French being more common. Those interested in the wildlife and nature of Cameroon will be unable to resist exploring the expansive national parks housing a variety of wild animals in their natural habitats. Major industries in Cameroon rely on commercial farming and factory-based industry, which is mainly in the cities of Doula and Bonabéri. Along the coast, bananas, cocoa and tea are cultivated, while inland, sugar, tobacco and particularly coffee are lucrative crops. Agriculture and fishing are also significant sources of employment.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world.
