Cameroon Airlines, a company that knows how to please customers ... and shows it!

 by Jerry W. Bird

At the association's publishing office in Canada, we're counting the days until our return journey to Douala, Cameroon on West Central Africa's Atlantic Coast. The ATA 29th International Congress in May 2004 provides us an opportunity to explore even more of the fascinating country by road and via Cameroon Airlines. We flew with this friendly airline in December 2001 and spent an exciting month learning about the country and gathering stories for the 2004 Congress edition of Africa Travel Magazine. En route, we flew with Cameroon Airlines from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport to Yaounde, Cameroon's Capital. After the ATA Ecotourism, Trade and Investment Symposium, we enjoyed a week-long "fam trip" from Yaounde to the northern province near Wasa National Park. It was an experience that continues to bring fond memories. What an impressive introduction to the diverse culture of this rapidly emerging country. Our tour of Cameroon was arranged through the offices of Tourism Minister Hon. Pierre Helé and his team. The program was so extensive, it will require continuing installments . Our travels in Cameroon will eventually be compiled in a book that will help future travelers enjoy this fascinating country to the fullest. More chapters will be added when Muguette Goufrani, photographer Robert Eilets and I hope to return to Cameroon and continue where we left off. It's truly Africa in One Country!

Editor's Comment: “We thank tour supervisors Ebenezer Elimbi, Jean Npombo and Boniface Piga. They were great companions throughout my 30 days in the country. It was a month we will treasure forever, and even as time passes, the images and voices of Cameroon have not faded one iota - they've become even more vivid in the theater of my mind. What I truly love about the many Cameroonians whom I've come to know - is that to a person, they "Accentuate the Positive."
