Lubango is one of the most beautiful areas in Angola, if not Africa. The first settlers were Portuguese and there are still traces of Portuguese architectural in some buildings. The surroundings are green, mountainous and very scenic.
Cristo Rei, Christ the King
The most famous Christ the King statue is in Rio de Janeiro, but it isn’t the only one. The statue is 30 metres high and is situated on top of the hill overlooking the city of Lubango.
On top of the hill, you also have a fantastic view of Lubango and its surroundings. Next to the statue, you will see the giant letters saying LUBANGO in the style of Hollywood.
Serra da Leba
Serra da Leba is a mountain range with an altitude of 2650 metres. Located 50 km from Lubango. The most stunning part is the mountain pass road. It was built during the Portuguese and connects two important cities, Lubango and Namibe.
The pass has 56 bends, one of the bends is called the “curve of the Cubans” because of the frequent accidents that took place here. It was built by the Portuguese and led by Maria Alice Leba, thus the name of the road.
Whatever you choose to do in Angola, it will be a unique and memorable experience of a lifetime, with a Guides4me guide, who will look after you and by the end of the trip you’ve made a best friend.
