Dala Waterfalls

Malanje, Angola

Situated in Lunda Sol, the Dala Waterfalls are about 60m high and conjure a spectacular scene with the mist and spray created from the crashing of the water on the rocks below. The waterfalls can be comfortably viewed from a bridge near the base of the falls or, for those who truly love the scene, a hotel is built only 50m away from the waterfalls. The waterfalls, also referred to as the Chiumbe River falls, should not be confused with the Cassengo falls which are smaller but situated in the same area of Angola.

About Angola Tourism

The tourism industry in Angola is based on the country's natural environment, including its rivers, waterfalls and coastline.Angola's tourism industry is relatively new, as much of the country was ravaged during the post-colonial civil war which ended in 2002. Unlike most countries in the region, which generally give US, EU, and many other citizens a visa on arrival or require no visa at all, Angola has complicated visa requirements (official letter of invitation, documents concerning purpose of travel, copy of travel itinerary, proof of funds, etc., all of which are sent back to Luanda for approval).

Angola borders the Atlantic ocean and has 1,650 km of coastline.

In Angola, nurture your adventurous spirit. Far away from mass tourism, you will experience a pristine Africa, not polished for tourists. Experience the real country and get to know the people. Angola is an exceptional destination that offers you a unique experience such as ethnic groups, Mumuíla, Muhimba, Mucubal, Muacahones, Ngendelengue.

Angola still offers a pure and authentic experience for tourists. The decades-long civil war, which ended in 2002, meant that many regions were untouched by people and have been taken back by nature. Till the year 2017, the Angolan visa was one of the hardest to get around the world.

The official spoken language in Angola is Portuguese, which is spoken all over the country. In the countryside, many tribal languages are spoken. The main languages besides Portuguese are Kimbundu, Umbundu, and Kikongo.
