Hello

You work in mine? I wonder if this area has a lot of violence, as they say. I want to visit one day the region of Lunda, but do not know if it is a good idea ... Abraço

Hi Vitor I have been working in Angola for the last 15 years and will admit that it wasn't a very safe place at times but since the civil war ended in 2002/3 the country were transformed. It is currently the fastest growing economy in Africa and it is probably one of the safest places in Africa. It is definately very much safer that South Africa where I live. You can travel to Angola without any worries about safety. It is still not a mainstream travel destination and services are lacking - but it is safe and the people are friendly. If you speak Portuguese you should be fine as long as you bring lots of dollars - Angola is not cheap. Regards
