Trip Planner Africa  /  Cameroon  /  Adamawa Region  /  Ngaoundere


Ngaoundéré, or N'Gaoundéré, is the capital of the Adamawa Region of Cameroon. It had a population of 152,700 at the 2005 census. According to the movie Les Mairuuwas – Maitre de l'eau from the University of Tromsø the population has rapidly risen to 1,000,000 (October 2016) owing to mass immigration from the Central African Republic and the perceived danger from Boko Haram in northern Cameroon. It lies at the northern end of the railway to Yaoundé and is also home to Ngaoundéré Airport. Attractions in the city include the Lamido Palace and the Lamido Grand Mosque. The town is named after a nearby mountain on its eponymous plateau; the mountain's name is the Mbum word for "navel mountain".
