There’s a selection of hotels and accommodation within a few miles from the park- so you’re never too far from city life facilities. The locals are warm and friendly but it’s very important to plan you’re visit properly and take precautions. Crime is a concern in the country.
A wonderful surprise waiting 256KM from Quiçama National Park is the Kalandula falls, and is in the municipality of Kalandula, Malanje Province, Angola. This collection of waterfalls is one of the largest waterfalls in all of Africa, with a height of over 105 meters and a width of 400 meters, the falls make up an impressive area. The falls were once known as Duque du Bragança Falls during the Angolan civil war between 1975 and 2002. The name was changed back to its original title once the conflict subsided.
Kalandula falls are little known waterfalls, but they are some of the largest of Africa.
