Kwanza Sul

Neolithic cave painting

Kwanza Sul – Where the Stone Age meets modernity.

The region is an Angolan province south of Luanda and borders the Atlantic. Characterized by a tropical climate, the travel time between July and August is the most pleasant.

The Kwanza Sul area has been known since the colonial era and is popular for its beaches. The mountainous province is famous for its Neolithic cave paintings and the ruins of old fortifications, as well as its multitude of caves.

Diverse nature

The Sassa Caves, which are probably the most famous in the region, were nominated for the choice of the 7 wonders of Angola.

But also its beaches (Praia dos Namorados), waterfalls and thermal springs (As águas quentes do Conda-cachoeiras do Binga, Cascata do Kawambundo near the village of Wako-Kungo), the Barragem da Sassa (dam), and the Grutas da Maria Bonita their beautiful view of the water are worth the trip.

What Our Clients Say

We had a very great experience with Pure and Authentic Tourism. We traveled with them for a week around the country, we discovered very great places : Kalandula falls, Sassa cave, Kissama national park, ... The team had been fantastic with us, being very good hosts, beyond what we expected : providing lots of information about the different sites, adapting the trip to our needs, having water and snacks in the car,... Perfect! And they speak both English and French which was a big plus ! Joao, the owner, even made it for us to stay a extra day in Cabo ledo before our flight back, to relax at the beach. We highly recommend them if you plan on visiting Angola! Aymeric & Alexandra

I was in Luanda for work and decided at the last minute to extend my stay for a week... I contacted Joao , the owner of Pure and Authentic Tourism, and in a couple of minutes he had a plan for the week set! Both the guides and Joao were very professional, flexible, knowledgeable and ready to answer my numerous questions ( ....). I arrived as a customer, but quickly they make me feel home and like a family member ....In 4 days we visited Kalandula falls ( staying at least a night at the Pusada overlooking the waterfall is a must do) , Pedras Negras, Quinca National park, had a boat ride up the Kwanza river, visited Sassa cave in Sumbe etc....Everything was well organized; food was great, the team flexible... Thanks to them My trip in Angola was simply great ( more than great in fact) , and I wish I had more time to visit more ! I hope to be back one day and will definitely contact Joao then! So many bad preconceived ideas about Angola are all over the Internet , but the reality is that Angola is a gem and I recommend every one to visit and to contact Joao and his team To really get the most out of it !
