The Lodge sits on a very nice site where the Kwanza river meets the ocean. The cabins look nice on the outside and even inside but there are small details that may ruin your weekend, like a "live wire" electrical extension. As it is a full-board resort, the buffet has very limited choices (and that goes for everything,including expresso coffee...

This was our first stop on a 14 days birding trip through Angola. We were 6 + 2 guides. My "single" cabin was large, clean, with a double bed and mosquito net. There were only one or two mosquitos about none of which were in my room. The bathroom had a working shower and toilet. Warm and cold water was...

Our safari jeep tour "9th Raid Kwanza Sul" brought us, a group of 13 Ford Ranger pick-ups, to have lunch there. The nice manager (from SA) prepared an amazing BBQ. This was a nice stop over of our tour and the group would have liked to stay for dinner and over the night.

Kwanza Lodge has a great location that is right on the Kwanza river, 70 km south of Luanda. My cabin was only a few meters from the river and the view is great from the small veranda over the river. The sunrise is right in front of these cabins. However, this Lodge needs to be improved. My cabin was not...

I had a 3-night layover in Luanda, and decided to spend two of those nights at Kwanza Lodge. The owner, Rico, can arrange a pick-up and drop-off from Luanda, which is tremendously useful. Apparently, if you stay 3 nights the transit is free of charge. The cabins are very cozy, clean and fantastic value for money (US$ 175 pr night,...

I stayed here for one night as part of a corporate retreat. It was delightful. The lodge is right on the Kwanza River on a spit of land which is also lapped by the Atlantic. There are good quality wooden cabins with twin or queen sized beds with en suite shower and toilet and a veranda over looking the Kwanza...
