Angolan President Joao Lourenco recently extended a warm invitation to Chinese tourists, aiming to bolster the country’s tourism industry. In an interview with China Central Television (CCTV), President Lourenco highlighted Angola’s unique appeal to both investors and travellers.

From pristine beaches bathed in sunshine to cascading waterfalls and a diverse array of wildlife, Angola promises an unforgettable experience.  A particular focus was placed on the upcoming Kavango–Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area, a vast nature reserve in the southeast. This sanctuary will allow visitors to witness iconic African animals like lions and elephants in their natural habitat.

“Angola’s natural beauty and abundant opportunities make it a perfect destination,” President Lourenco remarked in Jinan City, China. “We invite the Chinese people to discover the unique experiences Angola offers and explore the wonders of Africa.”

Nestled in southwest Africa, Angola boasts a long coastline of 1,650 kilometres bordering the Atlantic Ocean. This translates to breathtaking coastal landscapes teeming with marine life. Luanda, the bustling capital city on the northern coast, serves as the cultural and economic heart of the country. Despite its equatorial proximity, Angola enjoys a comfortable climate thanks to its varied terrain and the cooling influence of the Atlantic current.

President Lourenco’s visit to China signifies Angola’s commitment to fostering closer ties with the Asian powerhouse and attracting a share of its massive tourist market. By welcoming more Chinese visitors, Angola seeks to revitalise its tourism sector, generate new employment opportunities, and showcase its breathtaking natural wonders to the world.
