Kissama, or Qui├žama National Park is located some 70 km south of Luanda, the capital.

The Park consist mostly of dense thicket, tree savanna and large open grasslands. Due the 21-year war as well as widespread and persistent poaching, wildlife is not what it used to be. At this stage the remaining number of elephant, rhino and buffalo are unknown. 

Animals you can be sure to see include: dwarf forest buffalo, roan antelope, eland, bushbuck, and waterbuck and many, many birds.

There are accomodations at the Park.  These are nicely decorated rondavels with a moquito net covered bed, shower, toilet and air conditioning. 

The Kissama Foundation is attempting to restore the animal population to the park and has imported elephant from Botswana.  For more information on this see www.kissama.org
