Ngaoundere is the end of the railroad north form Yaounde, some 800 km northeast. You're pretty close to the Benoue Park here and well on your way to Maroua in the north.

The Palace du Lamido is the main attraction in Ngaoundere. It's especially interesting on Fridays when the locals come here to pay their tribute to the Lamido.  If time allows, try to visit Lac Tison (moto or bicycle distance from the city center) or climb Mt. Ngaoundere.  Even at a slow pace the assent takes less than an hour, and offers nice views of the city and surrounding countryside. 

The centre is pretty small and easliy explored on foot. On the main drag you find many cheap places to stay and eat, such as L`Epi d`Or (between the Grand Mosque and the Cameroun Airlines office). About a block away you find the New Jersey dance club, and a block south you find the street which leads to the Petite Marche and the railway station.

Set at an elevation of 1100 meters, Ngaoundere has a nice climate. The Ranch de Ngaoundaba is a resort some 30 km away on the road to Meiganga.
