Vibe Sanctuary | Journey Across Waterfalls of Angola
Advertisement
On the coast of West Africa to the north of Namibia along the Atlantic Ocean, packed with diamonds, and oil, spread across green savannahs, tropical jungles, and coastal deserts, beating to the rhythms of semba, rivet, and kizomba, and thundering waterfalls from Luanda to Cabo Ledo, Angola is where the bold go to dance and seekers of adventure find the final frontier of African discovery!
With only Portugal and Brazil having more Portuguese speakers, Angola’s capital is like taking a walk down the streets of Lisbon with the beats of Brazil around every corner café and the Fortaleza de Miguel and the Iron Palace to remind you of a colonial legacy dating to the 16th century.
One of the largest waterfalls in Africa, fed by the Cassoco Hills and the Catumbela and Lucala Rivers at the, the Kalandula Falls drop 105 meters down with 570m3/s of water raging over the rocks. We’ll earn our views from above and below, getting sprayed at the foot of the falls and taking in the enormity of the drop from the trails above.
The Black Rocks of Pungo Andongo, a mystical place full of myths and legends, according to the locals this was once the capital of the Kingdom of Ndongo, with the footprints of her monarch Queen Ginga, carved into the rocks. These extensive monolithic formations, millions of years old, jut out of the savannah in black towers, with the commune of Pungo-Andongo all that remains of this ancient kingdom and the ruins of the Fortress of Pungo-Angongo from the days of Portuguese colonialism still haunting this mysterious place.
With Kuduro, Kizomba, Semba, and Tarrachinha beats from the high savannahs to the beaches of Cabo Ledo, Angolan safari in Kissama, and rapids and waterfalls along raging rivers all the way to the Atlantic, it’s a little Brazil, a dash of Portugal, and a lot of African Angola!
Let’s go!!
