Parque Nacional da Quiçama, Bengo Province

#4 of 6 in Nature in Angola
Discover the abundant biodiversity of Parque Nacional da Quiçama, the last remaining functional area of its kind in the country. Besides all of its animal and plant species, the park has an interesting history, as well. Extreme poaching during the Civil War led to the disappearance of most of the native species, such as elephants. In response, the park organized "Operation Noah's Ark" to repopulate with animals from other countries. Today, you can see numerous elephants, monkeys, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, and buffaloes across the 12,141 sq km (4,687 sq mi) park, bordered by the Atlantic ocean and two rivers. A restaurant with a hostel on site accommodates those who want to stay longer.

  • The Quiçama Park is a park where you can see wildlife, particularly giraffes, zebras and elephants. We have not seen and I don't believe we have lions and tigers, but it's an interesting ride. Stay away from Luanda, so it's good to get up early to go visit him, because animals hide when the Sun starts to get louder ... Ideally, I've been there a couple of 7:00 out in the first group. There's a restaurant on site, but we don't eat there, we wanted to still pass the Museum of slavery and Mirante da Moon, that get in the way for those coming from Luanda

  • A beautiful park, where we can see some of the African savanna and their animals: giraffes, wildebeests, monkeys, zebras, deer. Where the river Kwanza, very beautiful. Walk in open 4 x 4 cars ...

  • Around Luanda, it is possible to see and meet a significant number of wild animals in your natural habitat. You can sleep and eat at the "camp" but the conditions are not polite. However, this option allows you to view the sun set and the invasion of monkeys that there is food, watch the sunset and consersar in the evening around the campfire with other guests and the staff at the resort. Lets also make the first safari in the morning where there is more likely to see more animals.

  • Definitely visit this place once you are in Luanda. We can see Wild animals in their own territory. Best season is Monsoon.
  • Very interesting. It is not far from the city and it is worthy to visit BUT please come early in the morning (from 6:30 to 8:30) is the optimum to see all the animals. I started after 9:00 AM and I could see almost everything except the elephants. Even while driving to the reception, you start seeing animals crossing the road... Very Nice! Be prepared to pay (as a tourist) 2500 Kz at the main gate and 4000 for the safari itself in the park's rangers trucks. You could also have breakfast first or afterwards in the restaurant or Lunch... They also get accomodations to sleep over there (200 $ per night). It's a pitty, the authorities does not communicate too much around this precious natural site.
  • The best safari ever. We arrived early (06:30) at the lodge and experienced an amazing view of Kwanza river and the surrounding landscape. Seeing all the animals in their natural environment was a very nice experience. Quicama has the potential to be a world class national animal park with a little more investement.
  • So disappointed ... Didn't see that much ...
  • Empty of animals
