I have a recommendation for a great company for off-the-beaten-track travel in Africa. In June ’10 I took a private, independent tour of Cameroon from CEMAC Tours (Box 4877 Douala, Cameroon; phone +237 75 61 94 86 or 97 92 70 23).

These days were part of a longer FIT trip, so I don’t know what I paid for their services, but I want to commend the company and its Director General, Muhamadu Danteni Musa. He made it his business to come to the hotel the first day to introduce himself and the guide and driver. During my stay, he arranged interesting tours, in a spotless car, to Buea and Limbe.

He also worked tirelessly to sort out two problems I had, one with the hotel and one with a local African airline. Much to my surprise (and delight), he insisted on coming with me to the airport to ensure that I had no problem with my onward flight.

Clearly, this company believes that once you book with them, you are their responsibility from entry to exit of the country. . . and they really take this responsibility very seriously. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
