Having just returned from yet another fabulous adventure to Angola, I thought I’d let you all know what a fabulous trip this has become! I have lead tours to Angola since 2010 and there has been a remarkable improvement in infrastructure, especially the country’s roads, on an annual basis since then.
Rockjumper was the first birding company to offer tours to Angola in 2004, after the civil war ended. Initially this was a really rough expedition as the roads were in such bad condition that we often needed several days to get from one location to another. On top of this, a number of species had not been seen for many years and their status was uncertain. All this, however, has now changed for the better.
