Cameroon is located on the West coast of Africa, surrounded by Nigeria, Gabon, Chad, Central African Republic, Congo and Equatorial Guinea. It has a 400km coastline to the Atlantic Ocean.
The population is about 20,000,000, comprised of over 240 tribal groups. No tribe or religion has dominance, and the country has been typically peaceful throughout its history.
The country owes its name Cameroes (prawns, shrimps, crayfish) which the Portuguese found on the Wourri estuary in 1472 and named it ‘Rio Dos Cameroes’ or ‘River of prawns’
