Bradt Guides Angola
Bradt Guides Angola is the pre-eminent guide to Angola. Angola is changing at a rapid pace. This new edition reflects the continued resurgence of tourism following years of conflict. While no city comes close to matching Luanda for sheer size, venture outside the capital and you will find everything from frontier diamond towns to relaxed beach resorts. The country offers over 1,000km of unspoilt beaches. It provides excellent fishing and some of the best surfing waves in the world. Rain forests and bird spotting opportunities abound. Whether business traveller or pioneering adventurer, Angola provides all the practical and background information you’ll need to tackle this vast country. It also acts as a guide for expats living in the country.
There has never been an easier time to visit Angola. There is a spirit of optimism in the air as the new administration takes a more open approach to Angola’s engagement with the outside world.
For the adventurous traveller
Angola refuses to cling mawkishly to its past, having emerged from the shadow of 500 years of Portuguese rule and a long civil war. The prevailing spirit is one of confidence, pride and optimism. For the ultimate bragging rights, Angola is the tourist destination.
Business visitors are increasing but it’s still a very niche destination for tourists. Miles of remote beaches, tropical rainforests, burgeoning provincial capitals, and all manner of birds await. Race the waves in the Foz do Cunene–Baía dos Tigres beach run. See the grandeur of the Portuguese colonial pastel-pink building and travel deep into the desert to see the mysterious Tchitundo-Hulo rock paintings. You can even take a day trip to the Kissama National Park a few hours south of Luanda.
Angola is keen to make up for lost time, and it would be a shame to miss out on its dramatic rebirth.
