A country that rewards independent travel.
Although more well known for its civil war, mines and visa restrictions, Angola offers stunning landscapes and a great selection of attractions for those willing to travel independently. It is the seventh-largest country in Africa, located on the Atlantic coastline between Namibia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since independence from Portugal in 1975, Angola has become the second-largest oil producer in Africa, however, poverty is still widespread and it remains one of the most landmine-contaminated countries in the world.
