Luanda



What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Great beaches, parties, trips to the provinces. - Mar 23, 2017
Yellow fever and malaria epidemics; preparation for a zika epidemic. Economic disruption. - Apr 23, 2016
Hanging out at the beaches with friends. - Mar 28, 2015
Best adventure was going to Cabo Ledo and paying a local to catch fresh lobsters that we grilled at home. Plus the Embassy community was very close with lots of socializing. A visit to "Shipwreck Beach" to see the rusting hulks. Whale watching. Although I didn't partake, Angola is known for its world-class marlin fishing. Luanda has an annual 10k run on New Year's Eve that is wonderfully intense. The prize is a car and the Angolans go all-out in a madcap race that takes place in 90F degree weather. - Aug 31, 2014
Trips to the beach on the Ilha or at Cabo Ledo. Provincial travel to Huambo and Benguela. Dinner on the Ilha with beautiful views of the city lights. Exercising on the Marginal (the beautiful new path along the bay). - Jul 11, 2013
