The Tourism still offers a pure and authentic experience for tourists, since there are almost no tourist coming down this area. The decades-long civil war, which ended in 2002, meant that many regions were untouched by people and have been taken back by nature. Till the the years 2017, the Angolan visa was one of the hardest to get around the world.
Even though the country is gradually opening up to tourism, it is still not an easy destination to visit. Frequent power outages, car accidents caused by the tropical climate and poor road conditions, as well as general difficulties of a developing country make Angola an adventure not for the faint-hearted. For the locals this is normal everyday life, but for travelers from better organized countries, this can be a nerve-racking rehearsal.
Please be aware that despite careful organization and preparation, not everything may go according to plan. From time to time external influences such as traffic or weather may impact plans. We always strive to make your stay as smooth as possible, but a country like this brings with it challenges that you might not expect in industrialized nations. In these circumstances, we will always make your safety a priority, rather than the planned event.

In recent years, job and training opportunities in Angola have developed rapidly, leading to a very small upper class and an also small but growing middle class. The young Angolans strive for a Western life that is exemplified by the social media and telenovelas.
Unfortunately the country is still strongly affected by poverty, especially in rural areas. It is a very safe travel destination, due to the openness and hospitality of the population.
During the Portuguese rule, the country was Christianized. As a result, the value system of the country is very similar to the Western world and visitors from Christian countries have few cultural barriers to be aware of.
Angola is next to Brazil and Madagascar, one of three countries with the highest biodiversity worldwide. Nowhere else on the African mainland is such a wealth of animals and plants to be admired. This alone makes Angola a fascinating destination.
Unfortunately, the flora and fauna were severely affected during the civil war, and further decimated by natives due to ignorance and greed in the following years.
Despite extensive efforts in recent years, the highly decimated species need time to recover. Organized open-air walks in the form of safari parks as in Tanzania or South Africa are not available. Here, the untouched landscapes and rare species await discovery. Many parts of the country have not been visited for decades by anyone, and no one can truly say what is still hidden in the deep jungles of the country. Today’s well-known sights are probably just a taste of Angola’s still deeply hidden beauty.
