About Landscape

Angola Security Overview

Criminal activity in Angola is high. Crimes, including theft of electronic devices and other valuables, is common in major cities including Luanda. Thieves are known to operate in areas where foreign travelers frequent. Attackers will likely use armed violence if victims don’t comply. Other crimes include accessing static vehicles when stopped at traffic lights or road junctions. Valuables that are on display will increase the risk of being targeted.

Traffic collisions are a serious concern for foreign travelers in Angola. Road conditions are poor, and driving standards are considered unsafe, which makes driving in the region extremely challenging. Minefields are common in Angola, which makes moving around the region more difficult. During the rainy season, there is an increased risk of mines becoming dislodged and moving onto local paths or roads. Most remote travel will require two vehicles in convoy due to the poor state of the roads and increased risk of breakdowns. Consider seeking advice from a security specialist to ensure a robust security plan is in place before traveling to the region.
