What to do in 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. There is also very little in the way of a 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.

Angola: The basics

The currency here is the kwanza (impossible to import or export).
No visas are issued nowadays; to enter Angola you need a temporary work visa as well as providing a guarantee of resources and lodging with an official letter from your sponsoring organisation in Angola.
Also, entry into Angola is only by air.
Within the country, travel by road is strongly advised against.

Concerning health, it is advisable to protect yourself against malaria and be vaccinated against yellow fever, typhoid fever and hepatitis A and B. You should also avoid drinking tap water, using ice cubes, drinking fresh fruit juice and eating unpeeled fruit and vegetables. A thorough wash of your hands is recommended before eating. Be aware of the risks of cholera and AIDS that exist here.

For security reasons keep a copy of your identity papers on you.
