Fantastic bird trip to Angola – October 2011

From the BirdQuest website: For birders, the current stability of Angola means that a wealth of mouth-watering specialities is now once more within reach. Our visit is timed at the end of the dry season, just before the hotter and wetter months begin. Angola has some of the least known and most interesting endemic birds in Africa, but the infrastructure of the country is still recovering from the long civil war and at the same time Angola is an extraordinarily expensive country, thanks to its new oil wealth. Good accommodations are limited, and we will have to camp at times. This length of itinerary is the tour duration our experience tells us is necessary both to find, rather than miss, the key specialities of the country and to keep the relative amount of time spent travelling within reasonable bounds (as Angolan roads are still very variable in quality, although rapidly improving thanks to all that oil money).
