The sub-Saharan country Cameroon is known for its diversity in culture and geography. While expats certainly enjoy its exotic atmosphere and beautiful beaches, mountains, deserts and rainforests, they will suffer from such inconveniences as chronically slow Internet access and bureaucratic red tape.
