Angola (Bradt Travel Guide)
Sean Rorison (Author), Mike Stead (Author)
Angola is no destination for beginners. It has no Starbucks or McDonalds, and
there's only one functioning escalator in the whole country. Only seven years have passed since it emerged from three decades of armed struggle; the land is
littered with 10 million unexploded mines (which, interestingly, the elephants have learnt to detect and avoid) and there are few tourist facilities. But for the
adventurous, this country offers over 1,000km of unspoilt beaches, excellent fishing and surfing, tropical forests and magnificent bird life. The first-ever
English guidebook to the country, Bradt's Angola is essential reading for business travellers and pioneering adventurers alike. Mike Stead has lived in
Angola since 2007. He works for the British FCO. Sean Rorison is a Canadian writer best known for his writing in the Chicago-based periodical Sobaka. He
has also run an award-winning travel-writing website for the past seven years called Sean's Travel Stories.
