10 days tour – Luanda & Southern Tribes

Dive into the deep south of Angola. Here you really go back to basics and time seems to have stood still. The south of Angola is mainly known for the many local tribes that still live here. Many of them still dress traditionally and live according to ancient customs. Few tourists come here and often they are very curious when they meet people from far away. The cities in this region are also unique, especially the coastal city of Namibe, which is full of art deco buildings from bygone times.
