This Southern African country lies on the Atlantic Ocean, its northern neighbour being the Democratic Republic of Congo, while Zambia is situated on its eastern border and Namibia to the south. Angola has a labyrinthine system of rivers and the well-known Namib Desert stretches along its southern coast. The oil industry plays a significant role in the Angolan economy. The country has some extremely wealthy citizens while the majority of the population lives in poverty. Besides oil the following commodities are also exported: diamonds, coffee, cotton, sisal, fish and timber. Angola was a Portuguese Colony until 11 November 1975. Its colonial history is reflected in the Portuguese-influenced cuisine, the language and other aspects of life. According to the 2019 census the country has over 30 million inhabitants, thus it is highly populated in some areas. Today Angola is not a much traveled tourist destination, mainly because of its weak infrastructure, but it is an interesting and beautiful country. Many visitors come to Angola for its splendid fishing opportunities, although there is much more to see and do. Some alluring destinations are the Iona National Park, the famous Death Acre, a passage of coastline which can be traveled across only at ebb tide, and Arco Lake which is empty after many years of drought. There is also Flintstones, an area of exquisite sandstone formations, Sumbe Falls and Dombe Grande, a small historical village which has become a ghost town. During a birding tour on the Kwanza River a sure highlight is the nesting of the scarce Palm Vulture. The Black Rocks have an intriguing history while a visit to numerous Shipwrecks north of Luanda is an overwhelming journey worth the while. Over 50 fishing boats are stranded there, which Portuguese owners left behind when civil war threatened their livelihood in Angola soon after independence . The Cadula Waterfalls are the third biggest waterfalls in Africa and the Leba Pass outside Lubango is one of the many destinations not to be missed.
