Travelers to Cameroon are advised by the State Department to avoid all travel to the Far North regions of the country. U.S. Citizens are warned of the high risk of travel to Cameroon and the Far North region due to the terrorist group Boko Haram’s activities and their targeting of expatriates. Coordinated attacks on two compounds in Kolofata resulted in the kidnapping of government leaders and their families and several clergy kidnapped from the region. The U.S, Embassy urges extreme caution when traveling. The travel warning also extends to bordering countries Nigeria, Chad and the Central African Republic.
