Lobito Things to Do
Rent a beach house
Most of the oil industry folks working in this area rent houses along the Stinger - aka the peninsula which faces the Atlantic. It's very nice, it seems safe, folks walk around no problems. There are a few bars around to relax in.. . One of our guys there mentioned that the best part of the week was the Sunday lunchtime beach voleyball, up near the Zulu Bar.Related to:

Catumbela Railway Station
This old railway station built by the colonials is in the town of Catumbela. This is also the home of the Cuca factory... yum yum!
There is also a small yard with a couple of old steam engines to have a look around.
This old boat is now at the centre of a roundabout on the Ilha... Must be of some significance to Angola History as it has a plaque signed by the president on it but once again my lack of portugese has got in the way!
Zulu: BBQ on the Beach
Liitle beach BBQ and Bar... at the end of the ilha. Friendly staff and quite a busy place. All chairs and tables are out on the sand, a nice place too chillout.
The road to Lobito
The road from Luanda is in pretty good condition apart from a couple of seriously rough spots. the last 40KM area bit of a nightmare but you just have to hold! it's nothin too serious just dam bumpy!
The journey is worth it even just for the scenery... A couple of hours out of Luanda you begin to see the mountains which are pretty spectacular. You pass through some interesting places too like Sumbe and there is a bridge which passes a big canyon... pretty cool.
