Angola is a Southern African nation whose varied terrain encompasses tropical Atlantic beaches, a labyrinthine system of rivers and Sub-Saharan desert that extends across the border into Namibia. The country’s colonial history is reflected in its Portuguese-influenced cuisine and its landmarks including Fortaleza de São Miguel, a fortress built by the Portuguese in 1576 to defend the capital, Luanda.
The fortress now houses the Museum of the Armed Forces, exhibiting arms used during the Angolan Civil War that ended in 2002. Luanda is also a diverse shopping destination, with upscale stores and markets selling Bantu handicrafts. Nearby are the popular beaches of Mussulo Bay, such as Ilhas de Luanda. Kissama National Park is a nearby safari reserve where elephants and giant sable antelopes roam free. Inland highlights include Tunda-Vala, a volcanic fissure known as a climbing destination, and the 105m-high Kalandula Falls waterfalls.
