The most convenient International Airports is Yaoundé Nsimalen International Airport
Services: In the airport, you will find ATMs, a restaurant, newspaper stands, a post office, handicraft and duty-free shops.
Travelling between the airport and Yaoundé:
The Yaoundé-Nsimalen airport is south-west, 27 kilometers away, from Yaoundé's downtown. There are taxi services available to the city, and some hotels offer shuttles and takes about 38 – 40 min via N2. Traffic is very dense and heavy in Yaoundé and finding where to park is difficult. We advise you to use a taxi or a Hotel shuttle.

Rentals: A car rental company is located at the arrivals hall. However, traffic is very dense and heavy in Yaoundé and finding where to park is difficult. We advise you to use a taxi or a Hotel shuttle.
By Taxi :
Taxis remain the best solution for tourists and inhabitants alike to navigate the city. Take some official taxi cabs, the “yellow taxis” in front of the airport to the city of Yaoundé. Fares are about €5 during daytime and €7 at night for the “yellow taxis”. Also, private taxi companies with AC cars offer secure transportation. They costs about €15 or more, however, it is simpler to ask your hotel to reserve the taxi for you.
By Hotel shuttles :
Most hotels organize their own shuttles from the airport. Check with your hotel ahead of time. Or alternatively, before departure, you may also ask your hotel to arrange a secure transportation for you.
