the diverse geography of the souther coast of angola can be divided to acommodate three distinctly diffirent types of sport fishing. time, cost and personal preference will determine choice of combination.
south of namibe towards the kunene rivermouth sandy beaches flanked by dunes are typical. gentle inshore slopes often followed by shallow sandbanks and typical atlantic waves is home to abundant stocks of kabeljou, shark and a variety of smaller species.
the coastline noth of namibe is mostly characterized by steep, high cliffs and deep clear water. beatiful bays with sandy beaches intermits. a big variety of species promises to test any anglers experience and ability to the max.
deepsea chrters covers a variety of species including tuna, dorado, shark, ray and the most coveted trophy of all the oceans - the majestic blue marlin.
like everywhere else, successful catches depends on season, phase of moon, location, the right choice of equipment, experience and naturally, a line in the water.
central and southern angola is host to a very large variety of landscape, flora, fauna,mountains,rivers and colourful portuguese colonial styled villages and cities. from lubango and humpata on the high huila plato with its subtropical climate and vegetation the landscape rapidly changes towards namibe in the mocamedes desert which resembles the namib desert, damaraland and kaokoveld of namibia.
fruits are plentiful and vegetables which is grown year round, is sold next to the road. colorful and friendly indigenous pople will be met along the way.
the northern coastline is chaacterized by steep cliffs and beatiful bays with sandy beaches while the southern coastline resembles the skeleton coast of namibia.
considering angolas past history of civil war, the prevailing peacefullness and practical absence of criminality is nothing short if incredible.
