Put simply: we were "warned" that the Hotel Baba in Foumban, would be the worst of the trip. When we arrived, I did not understand why and it never became apparent during our stay (no, there were no surprises) ;-). The truth is it was newly renovated, something important in Africa, and the place was very good. Clean, spacious rooms (some in the main building, others in bungalows scattered around a well cared for garden), and the restaurant was very good too! (FYI, you have to meals well in advance ... for example, if you plan to dine there, let them know in the morning, and say what you want, so that they can go to market and have it ready for the time you would like .. the staff and the cook are good!). The only downside is that it is located at the entrance road to Foumban, about 2 km or more from the main town. This means that, at least for the night, it is not practical to walk there. This is mostly for security reasons - there is no lighting and you would need to walk with a flash light... be careful.d. Therefore, the hotel is not easily accessible and you have to plan for this. Luckily taxis and moto-taxis are not expensive. The topic of hot water and light, as in many other places in Africa, is also a bit chaotic ... however, this site was fairly controlled. Apart from its beauty, something else to admire is the striking lion "art" in front of the reception, as well as the tables and chairs made by famous craftsmen of Foumban. The staff are also very friendly, and I assure you is not common in this area .. normally staff in this area are apathetic and slow .... or are severe and harsh. Not here. All in all, a good recommendation!
