Located on the South West coast of the African continent, the Republic of Angola is the perfect choice for those travelers who want to enjoy an unusual holiday. The country is full of hidden beaches and great cultural wealth. It is the seventh largest country in Africa and the official language spoken is Portuguese. Only the Atlantic Ocean lies to the West of Angola; with Namibia and Botswana bordering it to the South; the Republic of the Congo to the North; the Democratic Republic of Congo to the North and East and Zambia to the East.

Angola has rich and varied ecosystems, with dense rainforest in the north, a temperate coastal strip, an interior mountain range rising to over 2500 meters (6,000 ft) above seal level, and savannas in the interior South and South-East. The highest Mountain in Angola is Morro de Moco, which reaches an altitude of 2,620 meters (8,592 ft). Across the entire length of the country, Angola has a stunning array of landscapes waiting for curious travelers to come explore. The capital city of Angola, Luanda, is located on the country’s Atlantic coast.

It is the largest city of Angola and separated is generally separated into two main sections: the Baixa de Luanda (lower part of the city) and the Cidade Alta (upper part of the city). Due to the country's oil boom in the last twenty years, there has been a major regeneration within the city. However, the city still has plenty of charm thanks to the scattered Portuguese architecture, vivid nightlife along the waterfront, historic monuments and hilltop suburbs. In addition to its historical sites, in the areas around Luanda there are many other attractions.

These include the Kissama National Park, Kalandula Falls and Ilha do Mussulo. The waterfalls on the river Lucala at Kalandula are either the second or third tallest in Africa. Irrespective of ranking, at 105m high and about 400m wide they are spectacular and well worth making the effort to visit them. As a country with 1,600km of coastline, it comes as no surprise that Angola has many impressive beaches. If you’re into surfing, Cabo Ledo claims to have one of the longest left-hand waves in the world, with rides often exceeding 500m. If you’re looking for a more laid-back atmosphere, drive down to Sangano for a clean white sandy beach with views of the local town and fishing boats. Another option not too far from the capital is Shipwreck Beach, where you can take beautifully artistic photos of the rusting remains of tankers, cargo ships and fishing vessels. Angola's culture is influenced by different ethnicities additional to Portuguese.

The most prominent are Bantu, Ovimbundu, Mbundu, Bakongo and Chokwe. Angola is home to a diverse indigenous and musical culture. In the Namibe province, travelers can spend time with the topiary-haired people of the Nhaneca-Humbe tribe where you can visit the prehistoric rock paintings at Tchitundo-Hulo. If you are feeling more intrepid, mingle with the Tchokwe tribe in the Lunda provinces, whose ritual masks are so important they have become collectors' items. Luanda's yearly jazz festival is one of the city's annual cultural highlights, together with the Luanda Blue Fest, which is fast becoming an important fixture on the social calendar, attracting both national and international hip-hop and kuduru music stars.

Angola is best known for Kizomba, a very sensual dance style to Zouk music, a genre that combines Portuguese romantic lyrics and African rhythms. However, Kizomba is still a relatively new dance style which has in recent years become more and more popular, to the point it is now Angola's unofficial national dance style.
