Bafoussam is the capital of the West Region, in Northwest Highlands, Cameroon.

. . . Bafoussam . . .

Bafoussam isn’t the most clean, picturesque, or polite city in Cameroon, but because of Cameroon’s hierarchical organization, it has a central location in the Grand West. It is a major hub for Bamiléké culture, especially French Bamiléké culture.

Map of Bafoussam

Bafoussam is located at the intersection of roads going to Douala, Yaoundé, Bamenda, and Foumban (and from there, the West Adamawa), and the road to Dschang is only a short ways away.

Most cities have cars going to Bafoussam. In Yaoundé, Binam (“the setting sun” in the local mother tongue) is well-reputed, but you can also try Merveilles, General, or any random car that seems to be going to Bafoussam. Most agences hire “loaders” to find passengers and to load their baggage, and that these loaders can be very aggressive! Keep a firm grip on your bags and respond firmly with a polite “Non, merci” or just “Merci” to anyone who wants to tell you where to go.
