  2. The Currency Museum is a perfect destination to visit if you want to learn a little or a lot about the history and evolution of Angolan currency. The museum is filled with old pieces that were once utilized in commercial trades, such as antique Angolan coins and current kwanza coins. It also features an enormous, incredibly precious, and heavy gold bar that visitors are allowed to touch and try to lift, which, given its weight, almost no one can do. Especially, because the museum is underground, the entrance cannot be seen as other buildings, however, if you go there to visit it, you will be able to view the entrance on the other side.


    This museum is more than a building; it is an urban concept aimed at establishing public spaces that will enrich the city and embrace its residents. The city square becomes a celebration of public space as it welcomes visitors to the Currency Museum. The museum has physically engraved its name in stone, which can be seen from above and is within walking distance of the riverfront and the National Bank of Angola.

  6. The Miradouro da Lua is without a doubt one of the most beautiful spots to visit in Angola, and is ideal for those who want to contemplate the beauty of a peaceful and tranquil setting, complete with a lunar-like landscape created by wind and rain erosion. The location provides a one-of-a-kind perspective and an ideal setting for taking breathtaking images. If you visit Angola, particularly Luana, be sure to stop by here.


    The Viewpoint of the Moon is a set of cliffs in Angola's province of Samba, 40 kilometers south of Luanda. The kind of lunar-martian terrain we see today was developed over time by erosion driven by wind and rain. This was the setting for Jorge António's film "The Moon Lookout" the first Portuguese-Angolan film co-production, which was shot in 1993 and won the special prize at the Gramado Festival in Brazil.

    This is Africa's lone cliff with this geological formation of breathtaking, almost Martian splendor. The excursion will begin at Kissama National Park, where you can eat lunch at Pousada Cuanza after touring the park (not included). After that, you should stop at the Viewpoint of the Moon, where you can witness the sunset reflected in such a stunning natural work of art.

  7. Serra da Leba is the name of a mountain range in Angola that runs between the provinces of Hula and Namibe. It's one of the world's most famous hairpin roads. The magnificent Serra da Leba is a one-of-a-kind and enjoyable sight to behold. The road is completely paved and is located 20 kilometers west of Lubango. Estrada Nacional 280 is the name of the road. The Serra da Leba pass is said to be named after a Portuguese woman who designed and built the road and died after seeing it on the day it was completed. The road, which has been one of the country's postcard images for decades, is a wonder of engineering given the era in which it was built.


    It is one of Angola's most beautiful sites, particularly in the province of Huila. It's a zig-zag road that runs through the highlands. Walking through the Serra da Leba is a terrific experience, as it provides an incredible perspective over the Namibe province as well as beautiful rocks that will entice you to return.

  8. Kulumbimbi is a historical site that has been around for about 500 years. Angels, according to mythology, built the Kulumbimbi (Cathedral of San Salvador) overnight. As a result, Kulumbimbi is the very first church built in Angola. On October 30, 1957, the ruins were designated as historical-cultural heritage and became part of the historic center of Mbanza Kongo, which was designated as a world heritage site by the UNESCO World Heritage Commission in 2017. The monument was constructed in 1419 in Mbanza Kongo, the capital of Zaire's province. Its history illustrates Angola's religious principles, as well as a little mystery surrounding its creation, as many people believe it was created by spirits. Visiting this destination, however, is fantastic, and the best part is that you can take pictures of one of Angola's most important cultural monuments.


    It is the most visible symbol of Mbanza Kongo, as the capital of the Kingdom of Kongo, and its hybrid nature, with a church and cemetery that appears to have a different meaning of the word Kulumbimbi, gives it the kingdom's identity status because the entire community of the Kingdom of Kongo is recognized regardless of the religion practiced.

  9. Kalandula Falls, historically known as Duque de Braganca Falls, are waterfalls in Kalandula, Malanje Province, Angola. The falls on the Lucala River is 105 meters tall and 400 meters broad. They are one of Africa's greatest waterfalls in terms of volume.


    Kalandula Falls is a broad, horseshoe-shaped waterfall located in Angola's northeastern region along with the moderate to high-volume Lucala River. During the Angolan civil war, between 1975 and 2002, the falls were known as Duque du Braganca Falls. Kalandula Falls is not a well-known or well-recognized waterfall, but it is certainly a significant one, and it has the potential to become Africa's second most powerful waterfall.


    The stream of these waterfalls, which is broken into innumerable tiny trickles by fissures and pebbles at the rim of the falls, is one of the most scenic parts of them. As a result, Kalandula Falls has a unique beauty that sets them apart from any other major waterfall on the planet. Large boulders and smaller stones frequently slide down with the water as the stream erodes the cliff.
