Angola Introduction

Angola is an African country, not exactly the safest destination in the world, actually it is for aid workers, not tourists. The borders of Angola with most neighbouring countries are open now, but it is still quite an adventurous trip to travel along the roads to and from for example Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Border crossing with Namibia on the other hand is quite straightforward, but be sure to have your visa in advance. Angola has entered on the road of recovery. When it finally becomes a safe option for travelers, the nation’s cultural heritage will prove its greatest attractions. Dance, music and art all come from a rich past and have helped shape the sights and sounds of the rest of the world.

When we come to climate conditions, there are of course hot and humid conditions in Angola, especially in the eastern parts of the country where the land meets the Congo and Zambezi Rivers. This means temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius or more and mostly around 20 degrees at night. Thanks to a year-round warm climate, anytime is a great time to duck to the beach. The water on the other hand can be somewhat colder in the south, due to the cold Benguela current.
