Top tips for renting a car in Cameroon

  • Opting for car rental in Cameroon presents numerous advantages for travelers seeking flexibility and exploration. Popular destinations like Douala, Yaoundé, and Limbé become more accessible, allowing you to immerse yourself in their unique charms. Renting a car provides added convenience, particularly for carrying luggage, groceries, or equipment needed for outdoor activities. You'll no longer be dependent on public transportation or constrained by fixed schedules, granting you the freedom to set your own pace and itinerary.
  • In Cameroon, there are currently no specific laws regarding child seats. It is advisable to proactively reach out to your chosen rental company after making your booking to inquire about the availability of car seat rental services. However, as a general recommendation, parents might want to bring their own car seats for their trip to ensure the safety and comfort of their children for transportation.
  • You can potentially take your rental into several countries on the African continent. It is important to know that you will need the permission of your rental company before doing so. Also note this may not be possible with all rental categories, and a fee can apply depending on which country you are going to and how long you will be there.
  • If you plan to travel primarily on well-maintained highways or urban areas, a compact car or sedan would be suitable in Cameroon. However, if you intend to explore rural or remote areas with uneven or unpaved roads, you may want to consider renting a sturdy SUV or a 4x4 vehicle that can handle such conditions more effectively. Ensure that the chosen rental car has sufficient seating capacity and storage space to accommodate your group comfortably. Features like air conditioning, GPS navigation, or Bluetooth connectivity offer convenience and an enjoyable driving experience.

However, it's important to note that these prices may vary, particularly as you move away from larger population centers. Additionally, gasoline availability may be more limited in rural areas. It's advisable to plan accordingly, especially when embarking on long road trips, by ensuring you have enough fuel and considering potential price fluctuations and availability in different locations.

  • What are the speed limits in Cameroon?

    The speed limit within urban areas is typically 30 mph.
