The Republic of Cameroon is located in West Africa and its natural features include beaches, deserts, mountains, rainforests and savannahs. Cameroon is often described as "Africa in miniature" because it exhibits all major climates and vegetation types of the continent: coast, desert, mountains, rainforest, and savannah.
The country's neighbors are Nigeria to the west; Chad to the northeast; the Central African Republic to the east; and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Congo to the south.
Cameroon is divided into five major geographic zones distinguished by dominant physical, climatic, and vegetative features.
The Coastal Plain is exceedingly hot and humid with a short dry season, this belt is densely forested and includes some of the wettest places on earth, part of the Cross-Sanaga-Bioko coastal forests.
The Southern Cameroon Plateau rises from the coastal plain and equatorial rainforest dominates this region. Alternating between wet and dry seasons makes it is less humid than the coast .
An irregular chain of mountains, hills, plateaus known as the Cameroon range extends from Mount Cameroon on the coast through to almost Lake Chad at Cameroon's northern tip. This region has mild climate, particularly on the high Western Plateau although rainfall is high. Its soils are among Cameroon's most fertile, especially around Volcanic Mount Cameroon.
