Take a deep breath. We are at the foot of the Manengouba Mountain that straddles part of the Southwest and Littoral Regions of Cameroon. The physical beauty of this mountain dazzles first time visitors as they wheel on up its valley views. But you are even more awe-struck when you begin to see and feel the exceptional biodiversity richness of this verdant mountain coupled with the languid and enigmatic Manengouba twin lakes.
The biodiversity of Tchabal Mbabo, a montane reserve located in the Adamawa Region of Cameroon and covering a surface area of 106,762 ha, represents a globally recognized key biodiversity area with several endemic and threatened species, unique vegetation types and huge ecotourism potential.
A rapid survey of mammals, birds and amphibians, conducted by experts from the Cameroon Wildlife Conservation Society (CWCS), revealed Tchabal Mbabo’s potentials as key biodiversity area worthy to be declared a national park.
