    This actually turned out to be a lot easier than I thought! This will sound strange, but it’s easy. Drive towards Ruacana in Namibia. Just outside the town (do not turn left) you will see signs that say ‘Angola Border’ and Ruacana Falls. You will drive for a while then end up at the Namibian Border post. You can see the Angola Border Post to your...

  • Music and Dance

    Angola has a wonderful tradition of Music and Dance and because of history of the slave trade Angola had an active exchange of its culture and music though out the Americas. With every visit I would try to find the connections. The three way century of engagements between Iberia, Brazil and Angola changed the world of music for a long time to come....

  • Music and dance 3 the birth of Samba

    The meeting and mixing in Brazil between the Native Americans/ Portuguese with the Angolan rhythm, kaduke/semba, resulted in samba. Semba/ ma-semba are one and the same. Semba is just singular.

    In Luanda there is a place you should not miss: the beach of Chicala in an island just at the end of the town, called La Ilha.

    This country would have been a great tourist attraction, hadn't there been an ongoing war. The wildlife here could have been one of the best on the continent.
