You might call them primitive but we call them a fascinating wonder! Come and see an untainted lifestyle on hills marked by acute authenticity as the Koma people go about their daily lives. This semi-nude people rediscovered in 1986, have a flair for the arts of song and dance as the women are noted for their renowned leaf skirt dance while the men know their way around local musical instruments. The people have stock like glue to their African religion and have hallowed the sacred “vallée des rôniers” as home the skulls of their ancestors are kept. Another intriguing reality about these unique people is the strange practice of the men sharing their wives with friends and visitors. The Atlantika Mountains which span the border between Nigeria and Cameroon lying on the Southeast of Yola in Nigeria and Southwest of the Mandara Mountains in Cameroon plays host to the Koma people. Get the opportunity to marvel at how diverse life can be, yet so enjoyable to those who live it. This tour has complementary visits to the Benue National Park, the towns of Ngaoundere, Kribi, the Batanga Grand Museum and the Lobe falls. This tour of 12days/11nights is much more than a mere discovery!
