A title then the text


Cameroon is located in Central Africa, at the Bight of Biafra and precisely between latitudes 2° and 12° North and longitudes 3°and 16° east. It shares boundaries with Tchad to the north, Nigeria to the West, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and Congo to the south and Central Africa Republic to the East.
The location of Cameroon within tshis range lends it to diverse climatic and ecological regions, with a very humid south towards a dry and almost desert north. Such contrast in characteristics has made most researchers to refer to it as 'Africa in miniature'. It is Africa in miniature in the sense that almost every climatic and ecological zone found in Africa can be found in Cameroon. Another perspective is that Cameroon has a diverse ethnic and linguistic background. Cameroon presents all the tropical climatic nuances: from the tropical cool type, to the tropical hot and wet, and tropical hot and dry with accompanying vegetation and animal life.
The capital of Cameroon is Yaoundé, located between latitude 3°52′N 11°31′E and longitude 3.867, 11.517. The largest city in Cameroon is Douala and it is equally the economic capital. It has a surface area of 475, 442 km sq Km and a population estimated in July 2005 at 17 795 000 inhabitants and a population density of 37 inhabitants per sq km or in other words 97 inhabitants per sq mile. It gained its independence from France and Britain on 1st January 1960 and 1st October 1961
