Douala Edea Wildlife Reserve is a 400,000-acre preserve in Edea, Cameroon. Founded in 1932, it is one of the most significant, if not the oldest reserve in the region. It is bordered on three sides by water, and thus houses a large variety of flora and fauna. The reserve is set on the vast Gulf of Guinea, with the Sanaga River and the Nyong River flowing around the park on two opposite sides. Lake Tissongo is included in the park, and together these waterbodies entice exquisite species to make this wilderness their home. Tropical lowland equatorial forest creates a lovely canopy and covers almost 80% of the area. The important part of the forest is the mangrove forest which is spread across 15,000 hectares. They provide protection against coastal erosion, and house close to 80% of the aquatic species. Animals that can be spotted here include, elephants, chimpanzees, antelopes, west African manatees, sea turtles, crocodiles and alligators. Species of fish, dolphins and water bird species have also made this forest their home. Giving you the most rustic and authentic rendezvous with nature, plan your visit here today!
