The coastal nation of Angola covers a vast land area of lowlands, rolling hills, mountains, and plateaus. From its bustling capital and port city of Luanda to its exclave province, Cabinda, Angola has experienced strong economic growth in recent years, albeit an uneven one. It has come mostly as a result of petroleum-rich areas of the country. A restrictive visa process means that Angola has been mostly closed off to tourists, despite its many attractive travel destinations. Angola, the beautiful, remains a mystery to many even today – which makes some even more eager to discover it.
