• Angola

    • Angola, country located in southwestern Africa.
    • A large country, Angola takes in a broad variety of landscapes, including the semidesert Atlantic littoral bordering Namibia’s “Skeleton Coast,” the sparsely populated rainforest interior, the rugged highlands of the south, the Cabinda exclave in the north, and the densely settled towns and cities of the northern coast and north-central river valleys.
    • The capital and commercial centre is Luanda, a large port city on the northern coast that blends Portuguese-style colonial landmarks with traditional African housing styles and modern industrial complexes.

    Angola has so much to offer, here are some of the things Angola is known for.

    • Kalandula Falls These massive waterfalls are as spectacular and large as any in Africa, but, as yet, get very few visitors.
    • Miradouro de Lua A magnificent lookout over a canyon of moonlike cliffs that cascade dramatically into the Atlantic Ocean.
    • Parque Nacional da Kissama Angola's most accessible and largest national park has been partly replenished with big fauna.
    • Benguela Angola's cultural capital has colonial architecture, reasonable restaurants and some blissfully quiet Atlantic beaches.
    • Lubango Almost untouched by the war, the highland city of Lubango has busy markets, dramatic volcanic fissures and a giant statue of Christ.
