For this post, I want to tell you about great day trip from Luanda, the capital of Angola.
First up is the Museu Nacional da Escravatura, which translates to the National Museum of Slavery. It’s a small museum, founded in 1997, which adjoins to the Capela de Casa Grande, where slaves were baptised prior to be put on ships bound for the Americas.
The second stop is the Miradouro da Lua, or moon valley viewpoint. This roadside landscape is similar to the moon’s surface. It’s hard to explain how amazing it is, so take a look at the photos below!
Finally, we visited the Rio Kwanza for a boat ride up and down the river, leaving from the Kwanza Lodge. The lodge is located at the mouth of the river and is popular with anglers. The river contains large numbers of tarpon and other popular game fish. In addition, just offshore are feeding grounds for marlin, sailfish and dorado (mahi-mahi).
