Dry Season (November to February): This is the primary dry season in Cameroon, and it is considered a great time to visit. The weather is drier and cooler, making it favorable for outdoor activities and exploration. It's a good time for wildlife viewing, cultural experiences, and beach activities along the coast.

Early Rainy Season (March to June): During this time, rainfall gradually increases, especially in the south. The landscape becomes lush and green. It's still possible to visit during this season, but be prepared for occasional showers.

Peak Rainy Season (July to October): These are the wettest months in Cameroon, particularly in the southern and central regions. Heavy rainfall can lead to flooding, and certain areas might become inaccessible.

Late Rainy Season (October to November): The rainfall gradually decreases during this period. It's an in-between season when the landscape begins to dry up and travel conditions improve.
