WHY VISIT ANGOLA
Following the civil war in 2002, Angola is far from returning to a sought-after tourist destination: Anti-personnel mines, rising criminality, hold-ups, and carjacking are everyday problems. It is also very little in the way of tourism infrastructure.
However, there is no lack of magnificent natural sites to discover as well as some very interesting colonial forts. The Capital, Luanda, has some very beautiful churches, a history museum, and a zoological museum.
The Duc de Bragance falls are spectacular too.
Certain grottoes possess rock art paintings that are a delight to discover.
We can only hope that the situation will improve so that Angola can gradually open its doors to tourism.
