Angola is no destination for beginners. It has no Starbucks or McDonalds,and there's only one functioning escalator in the whole country. Only sevenyears have passed since it emerged from three decades of armed struggle;the land is littered with 10million unexploded mines (which, interestingly,the elephants have learnt to detect and avoid) and there are few touristfacilities. But for the adventurous, this country offers over 1,000km ofunspoilt beaches, excellent fishing and surfing, tropical forests andmagnificent bird life. The first-ever English guidebook to the country,Bradt's Angola is essential reading for business travellers and pioneeringadventurers alike.
