When to Go in LuandaEdit This
March through August
The fair weather season in Luanda allows you to see some amazing sites. Some places have been restored after the civil war. One fantastic place worth seeing is the Kissama National Park. With the rains causing the vegetation to bloom, it is beautiful. You will be captivated as the park rangers bring you to where the elephants and some of the big cats are returning. Since the months from March to August are the coolest, many festivals like the Jazz Festival held in July are open-air. Another main event is the International Festival of Theater and Arts which is hosted around the middle of May.
September through February
The temperature at this time of the year is the hottest, so tourists come here to lie around on the beaches and soak up the sun. During the mornings or evenings is a nice time for a beachfront stroll. At this time of the year you can find many bars and clubs open until the morning hours as the locals and tourists dance to native Angolan music. The Angolan Music Festival is in full swing during the month of September. The festival participants play music from the slavery days added with a sprinkle of recent styles of Angolan music. During this season tour guides are in abundance and trips around the island to view the culture can be a real joyful experience. Exciting tours to take would include a tour to the Natural Museum of Anthropology and the Museum of Slavery.
