  • The Island

    Luanda Things to Do

    Lined in front of town, a narrow stripe of sand, ten kilometers long, closes the bay, and provides several beaches. The ocean side is a clean and usually safe open sea, the land side is a calm lake not recommended for health reasons. Some kids don't pay any attention to it, but I ignore the consequences...

  • Mussulo

    Luanda Things to Do

    A few kilometers far from Luanda, Mussulo Island was a paradise. Now that the economy is recovering, and Luanda starts attracting again, some visitors, I'm curious about what they will do in that Island or with what remains of it. But it surely is a great opportunity, and something to visit in my necessary future visit.

    Huambo Things to Do

    Many of the villages around Huambo had guys running around the streets dressed in all sorts of costumes yielding whips and machetes...

Unfortunatly you have to enjoy the views from the road as the area is scattered with 1000s of landmines. Don't know the name of this mountain but if anyone does please let me know.
