Parque Nacional da Quiçama, Bengo Province

3.8
#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.

  • Very good because we had a good time on Saturday, but it should be noted that mean. Most start at 11:30 in rainy season, I don't expect to see many animals. I'm wrong. Giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, kudus, antelopes varied, but also monkeys and birds, I stopped counting how many we have seen throughout the central part of the tour of 2 h. Not always closely, given the noise of the truck, the animals do not remain. The restaurant is basic, on the balcony is the attack of the drones version mosquitoes, but the view is nice, the churrasco (grilled chicken) very decent and plentiful with veggies, French fries (not so good), black beans and rice and fresh Cuca. The less antediluvian truck that brinqueballe around in an uproar through after two hours and a smell of diesel. More than basic comfort. Started from 8:45 to Luanda, we came home shortly before 17:00. A lot of car for 1: 00 - 1:30 nice. If you are familiar with the most beautiful African reserves, there obviously is no comparison. I recommend to go by road to where return of weekend at Cabo Ledo or Sangano. Especially in family and certainly if you have not yet discovered the charms of the reserves of other countries. A nice moment.

  • 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
