How to get around

Angola is served by three railway lines: Luanda Railway, Benguela Railway, and Moçâmedes Railway. The three are not connected to each other, and each serves the north, centre, and south of Angola respectively. Unfortunately, bus services are limited due to poor road infrastructure. This means that buses are usually very crowded. In Luanda, a private bus company called TURA (Transporte Urbano Rodoviario de Angola) is the most efficient bus line. For those who need reliable transport to and from the airport, most hotels provide airport shuttles for their guests. Taxis are available but mostly privately owned and are not very common. White-blue painted minibuses called Candongueiro are more common.

How to get there

The main airport serving Angola is Quatro de Fevereiro Airport, located in the southern part of Luanda. The name of the airport means 4 February, the date that marked the start of the armed struggle against the Portuguese colonial regime in 1961. The airport operates between Luanda and some countries in Africa, including South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Gabon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Republic of the Congo. It also receives flights from Ethiopia, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, England, and France. Quatro de Fevereiro Airport will reportedly be replaced by the new Angola International Airport, which is still currently under construction and scheduled to open in 2017.
