The first game drive is around AM, so to get there in time we woke up at in the morning to leave at This way we escaped city traffic and arrived just in time. Be advised that Kissama National Park the park entrance and the Kissama Glacier National Park To Great Falls Mt we have to drive about 30 km in a dirt road.

How much does it cost to do a Safari in Kissama? This included elephants, elands, giraffes, wildebeest, and zebras. These animals adapted very well to their new home and are repopulating Kissama National Park very quickly. Though what Kissama National Park lacks a Glacier National Park To Great Falls Mt of fauna it balances with the quality of its flora and natural scenery.

In terms of inherent and wild beauty, Kissama is as beautiful as it gets. The Kwanza River, the surrounding landscape, the abnormal quantity of Baobab trees mixed with huge cactus and other exotic plants make the luxurious scenery, Jurassic-like. We were very Kissama National Park and went there in the rainy season, therefore, the park was gloriously green. The Safari in Kissama National Park The safari game drive takes up to 3 hours and goes through the park looking for the big Kissama National Park Elephants and Giraffes.

Though we noticed a few idiosyncrasies on this safari tour: In Kissama the safari starts off through the dirt road and then it goes into tracks through the savanna. Why is it different? You are driving literally in the middle of the bush without the road and without tracks. When the herd goes away… in every other safari we did, if the animal hides or goes away, your bad luck.

In Kissama, the driver goes wild and starts chasing and hunting down the herd so you can have a better look. This was rather unique. The truck used in the safari is a huge truck, that is incredibly noisy. Besides being uncomfortable with the client it seemed to scare off some animals. They need to improve on this. The guides looked knowledgeable and did a great job finding and showing us the best of Kissama, but they really need to work on communication.

Besides these two we also got to see elands, Zebras, several kinds of antelopes, monkeys and wildebeest fighting which was incredibly cool. Overall the Safari is worth for the natural beauty and the park itself, but the tour can be improved.

When we returned to the Kissama Lodge we had a surprise waiting for us. The lodge was full of monkeys playing in the ground and trees. There were so many and so cute, with youngsters and babies also. Although clearly wild, they looked quite used to humans. They probably go to the lodge every day looking for easy food. They even came to us to get some cookies. Kissama is very close, 20km or 30Km, to the great beaches of Sangano and Cabo Ledo!

These are great beaches to relax, sunbathe, play in and by the turquoise and warm water. Both beaches have good restaurants where you can have fresh seafood! What better way to end an already great day? You can should even buy seafood from local fisherman to cook at home. If Angola ever truly opens up to international tourism Kissama National Park will become as widely known as other great game parks of Africa.
