On Your Next Trip, Aim for Angola!

On Your Next Trip, Aim for Angola!

In a world where the population is over 7.7 billion, finding remote locations that are exempt from tourist saturation can be nearly impossible. If you are one of the people that is tired of, well…other people, then Angola should be your next stop. Remote enough to provide a unique and exclusive experience that won’t be shared with many others, Angola is where you’ll find natural beauty that goes hand-in-hand with blissful solitude.

The Kalandula Falls

Branching off of the Lucala River, boasting drops of up to 150m, these waterfalls hold the title of being some of the tallest in Africa – most definitely a sight to marvel at and be in awe of. Unlike the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, the Kalandula Falls are not well known and have managed to escape becoming a tourist hot spot, making the experience all the more unique and special.

Surrounding Landscape

Surrounding the Kalandula Falls is a rainforest that is largely sustained by the rising vapor which is resultant of the cascading waterfalls. There is an ample amount of species, both fauna and flora, comprising Angola’s entire landscape. In fact, Angola is one of the top three countries in the world when it comes to the richness of landscape as well as the biodiversity that the country contains. 

Pedras Negras de Pungo Andongo

Speaking of richness, the Black Rocks at Pungo Andongo provide an enigmatic ambiance and beauty that is defined by a rich history. The formation of the rocks remains a mystery, although it is speculated that their formation once formed the capital of the Kingdom of Ndongo. There are carvings and footprints that, as the story goes, were left there by Queen Ginga Mbandi as she fled from soldiers.

Later, the Black Rocks became a stronghold for the Portuguese surrounding civil conflict and consequent wars in Angola.

For 4×4 Enthusiasts

Delapidated roads and large amounts of infrastructure that has yet to be rebuilt since Angola’s troublesome history, make the landscape a dream for 4×4 enthusiasts to navigate. The terrain is so rugged that trips take exponentially longer than they normally would. The going is slow, which is precisely the appeal.

Dying to See It?

If you don’t own a 4×4, SUV rental and 4×4 hire still make this incredible journey a possibility. For more information, contact the team at 4×4 South Africa, or visit their website.
