Faces de Angola
The country is a giant jigsaw puzzle with different climates, landscapes, cultures and colours. You will drive over high mountains, across vast open plains, see wide white beaches and be engulfed by thick tropical rainforests. Angola has it all, as if each of its eighteen provinces is a different country. Lubango has a mild temperate climate while Luanda is hot and dry.
Much of the landscape is dramatic, with plunging waterfalls, bizarre rock formations and deep gorges. Leba Mountain in the Huila Province rises out of the Tundavala gorge to give stunning views of the vast Namib Desert. It is not often that you will encounter huge baobab forests, mighty rivers, the legacy of Portuguese culture, impressive waterfalls and secluded little beaches along the Atlantic, all on one tour.
New roads were and are built but deteriorate in a couple of years. The road conditions are horrific and traffic near big centres are some of the worst that you will encounter in Africa. So, to experience and see the beauty of Angola you will spend long days on the road and need to pack the world’s patience.
The route will take us through several of Angola’s southern and central provinces – with the turning point just north of Luanda. Currently, the only route of its kind offered as a guided self-drive trip. As there are no formal campsites on this route we will set-up a bush camp each night and will provide a camp shower.
The campfire will crackle each night and while everybody gathers around it you will enjoy our delicious dinners and recap the adventures of the day.
Don’t miss out. Angola is a true adventure not to be missed. Tick this one off on your bucket list and join us on the next tour.
