Overview

With more than 1650 kilometers of coastline, Angola offers an inexhaustible potential of paradisiacal surf spots. You will experience the well-known African sunsets, deserted beaches, dreamlike waves and delicious meals such as fresh fish, seafood and exotic fruits.

Not far from the capital Luanda are already popular natural parks such as Kissama and Cabo Ledo. At the right time, you can even watch the turtles laying eggs at Palmeirinhas. And when surfing, with a little luck, the dolphins join in and show you their jumping skills!

Outside Luanda, in the quiet countryside, you can experience the hospitality of the humble locals, so that you always feel welcome. It is important for us to carry out the Angola Experience individually and sustainably. Therefore, the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 6 people. For a closed group, up to 8 people are possible on request.

Surf

The main surfing season starts at the end of May, coinciding with the dry winter season “Cacimbo”. The season lasts until mid-October and during this time there is hardly a day when you can’t surf.

To date, only about 20 surf spots are known in Angola, so you can actually call the coast “untouched” and there are many spots waiting to be discovered. The spots offer world-class conditions and the very best on good days: On most days you are practically alone at the spot. Perfect conditions for unforgettable surf sessions!

Cabo Ledo is Angola’s most popular and surfed spot. This seemingly infinite wave runs practically parallel to the beach, so that instead of paddling you can also walk back to the peak. 200-300 meters long surfs are not uncommon here.

Around Cabo Ledo there are also many other top spots that you can explore with our experienced guides. The Chef-Guide is a former pro-surfer from Portugal who has lived in Angola for many years and has discovered many of the spots himself. Nobody knows and surfs the spots better than him! On the way you are with well-equipped jeeps and shade cookies, meals and cool drinks are always provided. The well-known surf saying “Surf, Eat, Sleep, Repeat” is lived here to 100!
