At last there is an updated map for this exciting and rapidly changing country. Our 3rd edition Angola map is filled with up-to-date information for the self-drive traveller such as GPS coordinates for important intersections, highways and secondary roads, 4×4 tracks, fuel points, towns, distances, national parks, border posts and more.
Angola has been off the tourist map for a long time, due to the civil war that ravaged the country between 1975 and 2002. Before this war however, the country was embroiled in a thirteen year long ‘war of independence’ against Portugal – its old colonial power. Such a long period of conflict has left its mark on the country, with the reminders of war still being all too evident. However, since 2002 the country has come a long way. It has made huge efforts in improving or rehabilitating its infrastructure, notably its roads and railways networks. Thousands of miles of roadway are now open. The country is also continuing in its effort to clear landmines left over from the war. These still present a danger in certain areas and so its best not to venture off the beaten track yet – unless otherwise informed by a reliable source.
Revenue from Angola’s vast oil reserves have helped to grow the country’s economy into one of Africa’s largest in a relatively short period of time. With this growth has come increasing numbers of tourists interested in ‘rediscovering’ this beautiful country that was for so long ‘off-limits’.
So, whether you want to experience Luanda – the country’s capital city notoriously known as Africa’s most expensive city – see the spectacular 100-meter high Kalandula waterfalls, visit the Black Rocks of Pungo Andongo, drive between the Namibe desert and the lush highlands via the magnificent Leba Pass, or visit Kissama National Park, then this map is a great companion for you.
