Don't be surprised that the main language is Portuguese: Angola was under Portuguese rule since its conquest on the year 1576. In fact, the city was previously called São Paulo da Assunção de Loanda. Find out more on Luanda by visiting our travel guide!
Traffic in Luanda takes the concept of "traffic jam" to another level, so pack a bit of patience. There are blue and white candongueiro minibuses, but these get overcrowded. The best way to get around Luanda is to take a taxi, so remember to hire private taxi companies at the airport or at your hotel.
Make sure you wear light and comfortable clothes, because temperatures are a toasty 19°C (67°F) to 31°C (87°F) year-round. However, if you are visiting in April or November, bring an umbrella as these are the wettest months.
