Parque Nacional da Quiçama, Muxima

3.7
#4 of 7 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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Muxima trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • There is not a lot of animals there, and the services are not that good as well. The lake view looks nice though, and the way to arrive there is also nice to drive at.  more »
  • Simple structure and location within the expectation. The animals are easy to place and well accustomed to visitors. I suggest long sleeve shirts, insect repellent and a hat, because the tracks are narrow and quite thorny bushes.

  • Highlights from the botanical point of view the Baobab (Adansonia Grandidieri). Many wildebeests, zebras and a giraffe are.

  • The park needs better driving roads and the management needs to fix the park trucks. The truck broke down while we were around the animals. They also need more workers driving to make sure people don't break down on the road to the safari also so no one won't get lost. Other than that it was good to see a different side of Angola.
  • On the bright side: Very interesting place, huge area, full of baobab trees and opportunity to meet "wild" animals (actually living within area surrounded with fence). On the dark side: excursion though the park takes place in the very noisy trucks, spitting lots of fumes, and chasing the animals, near to driving into them. Be aware that drivers drive like crazy, and there is a real danger of being hurt by the trees' brunches, possibly cutting your face. Be careful and protect your face, especially if you are sitting on the side seats.
  • No plastic in the sea. Beautiful vistas. Good road to get there but 4x4 on the beach. Braai on the beach but leave only foot prints
  • Just for the Landscape because animals have just a few..... Need better conditions restaurant have nothing for breakfast, safary transport very bad.
  • very beautiful and nice natural place to see wild animals
