Situated in Western African bordering Namibia, Zambia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola is still recovering from a quarter century of civil war, war with Aparthied-era South Africa and localized conflicts, so developing a tourist infrastructure has not been high priority. Support is still underdeveloped, and escorts are recommended in many regions. Frequent checkpoints will be stationed throughout the countryside. When venturing out of Luanda, the country’s capital, be careful not to stray on known paths, as uncovered land-mines still exist. Angola is the home to Africa’s second largest waterfall, the Calandula Waterfall, as well as to the Khoisan hunter-gatherers, an ethnic group known for their unique click consonant speech. In efforts to rebuild the country, and replenish the animal population that was decimated by poaching, Operation Noah’s Ark took place in the national park Kissama, and numerous animals were brought in to repopulate and rebuild. For those interested in water activites, the Ilha beaches offer bathing, while the Palmeirinhas beach is great for soaking in the scenery. For those willing to brave the country, there is much to see that is yet unspoiled by mass tourism.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Angola
Awesome potential!
Very difficult yet to tour in Angola as luxury traveler - great for the adventurer! Take in the diamond mines, check out the roads (built by the Chinese) and notice that the elephants are still gone from the terrible 30 yr war. Be careful where you step if you are ouside of the cities. There are still landmines around the country.
Good tip?
