Is this safe? I am considering a West African Adventure which begins in Cameroon. Does anybody now if it is safe in Douala for a female on their lonesome. Any recommendations for this city?

Hi rani, I just did a little search on Wiki travel:
http://wikitravel.org/en/Cameroon#Stay_safe

And it looks like it should be fine as long as you don't wear a lot of jewelry or have sex with strangers.

Here's another from the Lonely Planet, they give it a mid-level warning:

Let me know if this helps!

Yeah, you've got lots of travel experience, and you are very conscientious, you should be good to go, I have faith.
