Rio Longa Lodge open under new management

March 13, 2011

Many thanks to Janie who tells me that the Rio Longa Lodge south of Luanda has just reopened. It’s now under the management of Angolan Adventure Safaris (the people who run the Kwanza, Flamingo and Foz lodges). Bookings can be made via their website or through Manny at Kwanza Lodge 936 47 40 98. The Cost is $250 per person which includes all meals and soft drinks and beer. Children 6-12yrs half price. Under 6 free.  Everything appears as before but there is probably more emphasis on fishing now.  Canoes can be borrowed and there are organised boat trips up the river. At the moment there are lots of turtle eggs about to hatch on the beach. Don’t forget that this is a basic and rustic lodge and that standards of comfort and catering etc would not suit everybody. Nonetheless it is a spectacular place and an ideal location to escape the stresses of Luanda.

New hotel in Lobito – Hotel Belo Horizonte – updated with address

January 23, 2011

Updated 30 January with the address – see end of post

A classic example of Angolan journalism is the report in O Pais which extols the virtues of the new hotel Belo Horizonte. However it fails to say which town it is in and, as usual for Angolan press reports, it does not contain any contact details such as address, telephone, email or website etc. If anyone has these details, please let me know, thanks.

As far as I can establish, this new hotel is in Lobito and has the following: 64 rooms, restaurant, bar, pool, gym and parking. A fuller description in Portuguese is on the O Pais website.

Update- Many thanks to Derek M who has told me that the hotel is at  Rua 15 de Outobro at number 88
Telephone number reported to be 2-30-91
