Discover Angola

With terrain ranging from tropical rainforest in the north, desert dunes in the south and the third-highest waterfalls in Africa, there's plenty to see, Angola is one of  Africa’s last great travel mysteries.  Surprisingly,  the capital city, Luanda, is one of the most expensive city in the world due to its oil and mineral wealth.

Angola is still home to Portuguese colonial towns and, most fascinating of all, tribes people following traditional lifestyles unchanged in centuries. Oncocua is a former Portuguese settlement in the middle of a ‘cultural island’, and is where three different ethnic groups live: the Himba, the Mucawana and the Mutua. 

Another tribes group is the Muila people who live in Chibia – they are known for their incredible body decorations, and the local market is fascinating to visit.
