Douala Flights Guide
As is the case with many major African cities in the region, Cameroon’s coast had already been inhabited by small fishing and trading settlements before colonial powers started to arrive. However, as is often the case, it was the German colonists that established themselves and began to oversee the development of Douala.
Today Douala is the commercial hub of the country, located on the Atlantic Ocean. It has grown exponentially in the past half century, and today 3 million people reside there. Douala is not a typical tourist city, but nonetheless it has some sites that are worth visiting. The Native Baptist Church is one such site, which was constructed in 1849. Around this construction the city grew under the auspices of German colonial authority. Akwa was the main part of the city from the 19th century and remains the commercial center today. The Bonakouamouang Chimney is a remnant of German industrial input, and a city landmark. Palace of the Kings Bell is another surviving structure, and much more intact. The villa Mandessi Bell is yet another, and its age is apparent in the moss and vine-strewn façade. Eventually power was passed to the French after WWI, and Douala began its modern development.
Douala International Airport is Cameroon’s most active airport. Major airlines that fly out of here include Camair-Co, ASKY Airlines, Brussels Airlines, RegionAir, Kenya Airways and Turkish Airlines, among others.
