What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

Mussulo, Cabo Ledo, trips to the provinces. - Mar 23, 2017
Not that we've found. There are a couple of beaches out of town (Mussolo and Cabo Ledo). Both are getting more downhill and dangerous by the month. The one national park is just sad for safaries. Most "lodges" and "resorts" are what would be considered Motel 6 level accommodation, plus the problem of malaria bearing mosquitos. - Apr 23, 2016
Beaches and surfing at Cabo Ledo; buying seafood that is freshly caught for you; there are few waterfront restaurants that are special but will cost several hundred dollars per person. Getting away to Cape Town, Johannesburg or Nambia are special treats. Airfare is always expensive at least US$500 per ticket. Camping at the beach. - Aug 31, 2014

Beaches are fantastic! A quick trip to Mussulo and you are in a quiet relaxing place! - Apr 15, 2009
