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.
