DAY 01

luanda

  • After departing the hotel, drive along Marginal Bay, with the commercial part of the city on the one side, and views across the bay on the other.

  • Stop at the San Miguel Fort with the Luanda tour guide. Originally built in 1576, its purpose was to defend the port and the city from attack by the marauding French, Spanish and Dutch armies. It was successful until 1641 when the Dutch seized Luanda.

  • Drive to the new marginal side and stop to see the most unique Agostinho Neto Mausoleum, a huge stylized obelisk. Rumour has it that this is the grave of Angola's first president, President Agostinho Neto. Having very strong communist affiliations, Neto died in 1979, and it is said that this was erected as a gift from the Russian government.

  • Thereafter, drive to “Cidade Alta”, or uptown, a pleasant, airy and calm suburb above the rest of the city, with several pink colonial buildings. Here you’ll have the opportunity to see Presidential Palace, together with the Prime Minister’s office and the Ministries of Defense, Immigration, Justice, Health and the British Embassy.

  • Here, have the pleasure of visiting (if possible) the beautiful Catholic Church “Igreja de Jesus”, where many important people of Angolan high society gets married.

  • Depart “Cidade Alta” and drive back to the hotel.
