Bradt Guide to Angola
Angola is no destination for beginners. It has no Starbucks or McDonalds, and there’s only one functioning escalator in the whole country. Only seven years have passed since it emerged from three decades of armed struggle; the land is littered with 10million unexploded mines (which, interestingly, the elephants have learnt to detect and avoid) and there are few tourist facilities. But for the adventurous, this country offers over 1,000km of unspoilt beaches, excellent fishing and surfing, tropical forests and magnificent bird life. The first-ever English guidebook to the country, Bradt’s Angola is essential reading for business travellers and pioneering adventurers alike.
As Angola is changing rapidly, I have set up this site to provide updates to the book and also to provide an eclectic mix of additional information about Angola.
