The capital of Angola, Luanda is a vibrant city located right on the coast of the Atlantic, and has undergone major renovation since the end of the civil war in 2002.

Today, Portuguese rule and the following war are a distant memory, with tourists welcomed by friendly locals, and plenty to see and do.

The city benefits from culinary influences from both Portugal and Africa, meaning there are plenty of great restaurants to enjoy, and locals also recommend the Benfica Market, just outside the city centre, which sells locally sourced food and crafts, often made by the stallholders themselves.

And if all that shopping and eating gets a bit too much for you, head over to Mussola Island, where you’ll find the best beaches in Luanda.

One of the main sights in the city is the Agostinho Neto Mausoleum, a memorial to the country’s first President of the independence era, which towers over the rest of the city.

For a sobering experience, head to the National Museum of Slavery, which is built in the docks, where Angolan slaves were shipped off to the Americas.

The National Museum of National History is also worth a visit, with thousands of displays of endangered local insects, fish and birds, and the National Museum of Anthropology is a great showcase into life in Angola before Portuguese colonisation.

The Igreja Nossa Senhora do Pópulo is one of the city’s most sacred sites and dates back to the 15th century, with a spectacular baroque architecture.

We also offer great deals on first class flights and business class flights to Luanda.
