Located along Africa’s beautiful western coast, Angola is a country known for its abundant natural resources, colonial architecture and its winding serpentine mountain pass, Serra da Leba. Angola’s post-civil war tourism potential is slowly emerging, and most visitors are limited to the adventurous 4×4 enthusiasts. Visitors who have the opportunity to explore this spectacular country will be rewarded with unspoilt landscapes and magnificent natural features such as the Kalandula waterfalls, the bizarre rock formations at Pungo Andongo and the magnificent orange sands of the northern Namib Desert. The prosperous oil-rich capital of Luanda boasts modern skyscrapers, a palm-lined promenade and stately government buildings. Visitors can enjoy a ride on the Benguela Railway, which winds through the scenic countryside; visit Mussulo Island, a peninsula renowned for its beauty; and explore the scattered remnants of Portuguese colonial history.
