ACTIVE. Looking to visit an active volcano that seemingly shoots out of the sea? Look no further, Mount Cameroon or Mongo ma Ndem (Mountain of Greatness) is one of Africa’s largest volcanoes. Located in the Southwest Province of Cameroon near the black sand beaches of Limbe and the tea plantations of Buea, it rises from the coast through tropical rainforest to a bare summit which is occasionally brushed with snow.
If you were also looking to race to the top of an active volcano...shooting out of the sea, The Mount Cameroon Race of Hope can fulfill this desire as portrayed in the 2007 documentary file, Volcanic Spirit. Honestly, just standing and looking at it is an experience in itself.
