    Hallo Stan,
    Thanks for this detailed report. It mostly reflects my experiences on my two trips to Angola in 2009 and 2015. I have not done the south eastern part, but maybe a next time.
    Keep up the good work.
    Greetings Bennie

    I would like to sincerely thank the other members of our group for making this expedition the success it was and you must please feel free to contribute. This was my first trip to Angola and I would welcome corrections and comments from members with more insight into this destination.

    I think that the red flowered plant is a Combretum microphyllum or Flame creeper.

    The slogan on the wall translates approximately to: "V.I.Lenin wrote to construct a new army, we have to select the cadres (?) from the hard working/industrious masses." "Quadros" means picture or frame in European Portuguese but "cadre" is an alternative translation suggested by Google.

    "Fechado para nobras" means literally "closed for work" - probably meaning renovations.
    Die bewoording het my ook gepla en vir google gevra in afrikaans wat dit beteken en dit is wat dit se.

    V I Lennin het aan A O Cons dat hy 'n nuwe leer moet kies, en ons moet 'n seleksie uit die werkende massas kies.


    Baie interressant.

    Plesier Elize, veral omdat jy altyd sulke goeie terugvoer gee.

    As ek terugdink, het ek die gedeelte in die suide langs die Kunene tot in Iona Nationale Park and dan deur die Namib tot aan die Kus, die meeste geniet. In Namibia kan 'n mens mos nie in die ware Namib so toer nie. Moet nie verplig voel om die Doodsakker te doen nie.

    Ek was spyt dat ons nie tot die Congo Rivier in die noorde gereis het nie, en ook dat ons nie die tropiese woude in noorde gaan kuier het nie. Verslae meld aan dat die paaie onlangs baie verbeter het in die ver noorde.

    Vermy Luanda in my opinie, ek was tevore daar en dit is onaaangename "chaos".

    Thanks for the report. It has been a great help and information in regards to self driving in Angola is very limited. Hope to visit Angola soon and borders will be reopened!
