ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Angola, as a tourism destination, is remote and undiscovered, due primarily to a 40-year civil conflict that devastated the infrastructure.
Angola offers beautiful expansive beaches, wildlife parks and the vestiges of Portuguese colonialism.
Note: It is strongly advised to avoid travel to the provinces of Cabinda, Lunda Norte and Lunda Sul. Landmines are a risk outside major cities.

The coastal regions are ideal for enjoying the beaches and have much less rainfall during the summer.
