Flights to Angola
Angola is a South-Central African country which has an extensive Atlantic Ocean coastline and borders with Namibia, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo, plus the Angolan exclave of Cabinda borders with the Republic of Congo. Angola now has a booming economy after years of civil war, however tourism hasn’t really had a chance to take off here yet though it is now a relatively safe place to visit.
There are three airlines to choose from for your flight to Angola from South Africa, and these are: South African Airways, Air Namibia and Air Zimbabwe. All flights from South Africa depart from OR Tambo, Johannesburg’s International Airport, and SAA flies directly to Angola, though the other two have connecting flights through Harare and Windhoek.

The Tourist Attractions of Angola:
As mentioned above, due to having lived through years of civil war, although Angola now has a booming economy tourism is yet to take off. But the infrastructure of the country is being rapidly improved and it won’t be long before tourism too makes its mark.
In the meantime you can enjoy Angola in its more natural state, although this won’t mean everything is cheap. On the contrary, Luanda is a very expensive place to stay and buy food and drink.
Luanda is the capital and largest city and is situated on the Atlantic Coast. It is the country’s main seaport and has a number of hotels to stay in and restaurants to dine at. There are not too many things to do in the city – the bay is apparently very beautiful, whilst the Benfica Handcrafts Market, just south of Luanda, is the place where you can buy just about everything at very low prices!
A boat ride out to Mussolo Island, ‘the best beach in town’, is also recommended. This is an island in the middle of the Kwanza River and is a great place to visit as it has much natural beauty and well as services such as restaurants, plus beaches and palm trees.
About two hours south of Luanda is the Kissama Game Park (aka Parque Nacional Da Kissama). The park has just recently been re-stocked with wildlife and although amenities here are limited it is well worth the journey down. There is a tour company, called Eco Tur, who operate out of Luanda who you can take tours with to the park, where you will see giraffes, ostriches and other birdlife, gazelles and palanca antelope. Eco Tur company also offer tours to other places within 2 to 3 hours of Luanda.
When Should You Visit?:
Angola is in a location which experiences a generally tropical climate. The coastal strip, including Luanda, is semi-arid, whilst the rest of the country varies according to elevation. The rainy season is from October to May, and temperatures are highest during these months too. Due to it being a tropical climate, temperatures do not vary much throughout the year, so whenever you go you can be guaranteed warm weather.
