I did a quick search for Cameroon - no luck. However, I did see great advice on other African countries - Kenya, Tanzania, Senegal, Namibia, etc. You might find a nugget or two that will help you plan your trip. My brother had an amazing time on a tour and safari in Tanzania but perhaps you are less interested in doing that.
With regard to finding reasonably priced tickets, I think you will have to try several methods, both automated and not automated. This might be a situation where a live travel agent could really help. I have also heard from people who got good results from travel shops or consolidators.
Maybe other Ziners have worked with travel agents or consolidators with Africa experience whom they would recommend.
