Cabo Ledo

 
Cabo Ledo Cabo Ledo is the most known beach in Angola. Almost 100 Kilometers from Luanda on the only road to Benguela-Lobito. Drive a total of 125 km south of Luanda, crossing the bridge at the Barra de Kwanza (a military checkpoint and entrance to the national park of Quicama). At km 125 the road climbs a first rise and offers a superb view of the beach at Cabo Ledo down the valley. Continue to the top of the rise and turn right onto a small track which follows the ridge towards a quarry and the old lighthouse. Descend right past the quarry and follow the track down (4x4) to the beach. ...
 

Cabinda

 
Cabinda Cabinda is a small piece of land that is separated from the rest of Angola by a small strip of Congo. The sea just off the coast of Cabinda is very rich in oil. It was declared independent in 1975 but was occupied by Angolan forces. The Republic of Cabinda claims sovereignty and is based in Paris. Most of the local population lives from subsistence agriculture and hunting or fishing. Timber cultivation is also a source of revenue for some. The vast majority of the wealth produced in Cabinda , however, comes from petroleum. Adjacent to Cabinda s coast lie some of the world's richest oil fields. Cabinda currently produces 700,000 barrels of crude oil each day, generating some 60 percent of the revenue which Angola r...
 

Lobito

 
Lobito The construction of the Benguela Railway and the Lobito harbor were the genesis of the city of Lobito. By order of 28 November 1902 the great statesman and council president, Teixeira de Sousa, in the name of the Portuguese government, granted to Sir Robert Williams, the contract of concession to construct and explore for 99 years the railway road that would ultimately link Lobito to the highlands. Construction began in March 1903 and the city and harbor of Lobito were born. By the Right of Administration of 17 November 1948, Lobito became a city and an urbanization plan was approved for the area. Lobito's harbor measures approximately 5 kilometers in length and has an entry of 600 meters, the wider part measures 1.5 ...
 

Iona National Park

 
Iona National Park The Iona National Park, located about 200 kilometers from Namibe, was an animal paradise, rich in big game. Unfortunately the fauna has been reduced as a result of illegal hunting and poaching. Efforts are now underway to replace some of Iona's lost wildlife. The 'big five' of Iona now include: Springbok (Gazelle), Kudu, Ostrich, Oryx and presumably cheetah. The landscape is empty, although hordes of animals (especially Springbok) can still be found inside and outside the park. At the Namibian border, the river Cunene provides a wonderful setting for camping and the Foz du Cunene and the Baia dos Tigres is said to be worth a trip. ...
 

Luanda

 
Luanda Luanda is the capital of Angola and the biggest city. During the years of civil war the city has been badly damaged, but it is getting back on its feet again. Prior to the arrival of the Portuguese, the island of what today is part of Luanda was known among the native African population as Loanda, meaning flat land whose inhabitants lived in small villages known as libatas. They were ruled by a local governor who was, in turn, a subject of the King of Congo. On February 20, 1575, carrying credentials from King D. Sebastio, Paulo Dias de Novais landed on the island of Luanda in command of a fleet of seven ships carrying a hundred families of colonists and 400 soldiers. The following year, de Novais moved to the...
