On the way, we will stop at Miradoura de Lua, or Viewpoint of the Moon which offers such stunning views that it has long been one of Angola’s most visited tourist attractions. The Miradouro da Lua has been uniquely eroded and shaped by the wind and rain over the course of thousands of years. Though it is a sight to behold at any time of the day, this extraterrestrial landscape is best viewed at sunset. Continue to a local resort to take breakfast and take a boat trip to the Kwanza River.
