For most people, Angola is one of Africa’s last great travel mysteries.
Despite its elemental landscapes and boom-bust oil-dependent angola, the country remains closed off to all but the most adventurous travellers thanks to stringent visa policies, high prices and a history that’s been more about war than peace. It’s a shame.
Angola has the potential to be one of Africa’s dazzling highlights. Lurking within its angola borders lies the continent’s second-largest waterfall, scattered remnants of Portuguese colonial history, a handful of emerging national parks, beaches galore and a diverse and unbelievably stoic cross-section of people.
Whether Angola will open up to outsiders any time soon is anyone's guess. The angola tourist industry has yet to spread it wings and take flight. The sooner the government tackles the country's nagging political issues, the quicker it can emerge from its protracted slumber and show the world what's it's been missing.

This huge swathe of coastal savannah punctuated by angola baobab trees is home to elephants, water buffalo, indigenous palanca antelopes and a precarious population of nesting sea turtles.
• Museum Museu de Antropologia The Fortaleza de São Miguel guarding the entrance to the bay was constructed by the Portuguese in 1576 and is Luanda's oldest surviving building. Altered in 1664, whereupon it took its present star shape, the fort angola houses the Museu Central das Forças Armadas and offers sweeping views of the city below.
Other museums worth seeing are the Museu de Antropologia, with its African masks, musical instruments and indigenous hunting artefacts housed in an old colonial building, and the Museu de História Natural, which boasts two permanent angola in its marine and mammal halls.
