Hello how far is this from the Quatro De Fevereiro airport in Luanda? Can I get a taxi there and how much should I expect to pay by taxi?

The stated price 1500 kwanzas is for taxi just from Airport to boat docking area. But the boat charging price was 2000 kwanzas. Not expensive in relation to Angolan Prices.
