Angola is changing at a rapid pace. This new edition reflects the continued resurgence of tourism following years of conflict. While no city comes close to matching Luanda for sheer size, venture outside the capital and you will find everything from frontier diamond towns to relaxed beach resorts. The country offers over 1,000km of unspoilt beaches, excellent fishing and some of the best surfing waves in the world. Rain forests and bird spotting opportunities abound. Whether business traveller or pioneering adventurer, "Angola" provides all the practical and background information you'll need to tackle this vast country. It also acts as a guide to expats living in the country.
Mike Stead worked for the British FCO and was based in Angola. Sean Rorison is a Canadian writer and the author of Bradt's Congo and Angola. Oscar Scafidi lives and works in Luanda.
