Description

The Kalandula Falls lie in the course of the Lucala River and are one of the highest in Africa with a drop of 105 m. Although the waterfalls outside Angola are not yet well known, they are among the most impressive natural wonders of Angola. The Musseleje Falls are not as impressive as the Kalandula Falls, but with a bit of luck, you can watch the wild animals drinking by the river which makes it a special attraction. The Pedras Negras "black stones" are a mystical place with an interesting history. The Cangandala National Park is the smallest, but one of the best known in the country. Here are particularly many Palanca Negra, the heraldic animals of Angola, settled. Angola is one of the three countries in the world with the highest biodiversity. This is reflected especially in this region. Exotic plant life paired with rare animal species makes Malanje a breathtaking experience. Dive into the tropical forests of Angola and experience Africa in a very authentic way

From Luanda it goes east into the interior. We will have a coffee break in a local café and get a first impression of the country and its people.
A visit to the Botanical Garden (Rosas de Porcelana) in Ndalatando will bring you closer to the biodiversity of the country. A local lunch is already waiting for you afterwards.
After lunch we will make our way to Cacuso. There we visit a regional training initiative. Learn more about the everyday life of the locals and get to know the young people personally.
Our next destination is the Pedras Negras Pungo Andongo. The "black stones" are the venue of resistance to the Portuguese conqueror. The then queen of Angola, Rainha Ginga, was the leader of the resistance. Around her the legendary stories entwine. We will discover this story and the mystical scene extensively.
Day 2 -

After breakfast we will get on our way to the Kalandula Falls.
On our way we will stop at the Quedas Rapidas do Rio Kwanza in Cangandala.
After arrival at the Kalandula Falls, we will first enjoy the incredible panorama of the impressive natural spectacle, before we will hike through the adjacent jungle, as well as parts of the river to the foot of the waterfall.
We will spend all day in this magical place and enjoy it to the fullest. Do not forget your sturdy footwear.
We will stay overnight at the Kalandula Hotel - next to the waterfall.

Day 3 -
oday we start early to see the Caracatas de Musseleje (waterfall). Its best time to visit is early in the morning. At this time you will have the chance to observe the wild animals such as giraffes, elephants, zebras, wildebeest and many others drinking by the river.
The Cangandala National Park was founded to protect the giant sable antelope. The heraldic animal of Angola is native only in this region and was already considered extinct. The remaining population is today estimated at 200 to 400 animals. There we will follow the footsteps of the majestic animals.
After a typical lunch in Malanje, the capital of the homonymous region, we head back to Luanda.

The estimated time of arrival in Luanda is 07:00 p.m.
