Proverbe Douala sur le Respect du Chef / Duala Proverb on the Respect of the King



Même si l’éléphant est maigre, il reste le roi de la forêt (Proverbe Douala – Cameroun).  Il faut respecter les chefs malgré tout.

Even if an elephant is thin, he still remains the king of the jungle (Duala Proverb – Cameroon).  Kings should be respected despite all.


  1. I think that’s the first time I’ve heard anything about an elephant being the king of the jungle. I guess I’m so used to that title being given to lions even though most of them live in savannas. Besides that, it is a good proverb especially when the king or any leader is good at leading.


    • yes… right… we always think of the lion as the king of the jungle

      • Yeah, and it’s quite weird how that title came about.
