The country showcases most of the Africa’s climatic regions and is often called mini Africa. The country has deserts, plains, rain forests, mountains, hills and ocean coastlines.
The plains of the country stretch inwards from the Gulf of Guinea and go all the way to the plateau. The plains are well forested and also have the African mangroves along with the Douala. The southern plateau, which rises from the coastlines, has a typical rain forest type of climate.
The western end of the country is marked with trees, rivers and mountains which go all the way to Lake Chad which is the southernmost tip of the country. Going north from south, the land gradually rises and becomes undulating. This area is called the Adamawa highlands. The area between the Adamawa and Lake Chad is occupied by the Savanna Plains.
