ITINERARY

Day 1

Day 2

Luanda Living Large! At Chicala, you’ll have a selection of panoramic selection of Angolan dishes to choose from, to enjoy some of the best cuisine of Africa fused with Portuguese tradition from Europe in its best form!

After your feast and sampling session, next it is on to a visit to Saint Michael Fortress, Portuguese fortress built in 1576 by Paulo Dias de Novais

It became the administrative center of the colony in 1627 and was a major outlet for slave trafficto Brazil. The fort was for many years a self-contained town protected by thick walls encrusted with cannons. 

Inside the fort, elaborate ceramic tiles tell the story of Angola from early years, and in the courtyard are large, imposing statues of Portugal's first king, the first European to reach AngolaDiego Cão, renowned explorer Vasco da Gama and other notables. 

Until 1975, the fortress served as the headquarters of the Commander-in-Chief of the Portuguese Armed Forces in Angola. Today, it holds the Museum of Military History, and the Aviation Museum. 

Enjoy a short visit to the museum to see the history and the excellent aircraft collection, and at the and of the afternoon, there will be a Capoeira workshop in Luanda Island, while the sun goes down! 

Cap this off with some optional cocktails tonight and relax and feel the vibes of Angolan music and even dance (optional: if you'd like to go out) and nightlife (subject to weekends being the busiest and most hopping nights, naturally.)
