Angola is a country located in southwestern Africa, known for its beautiful beaches, diverse wildlife, and rich cultural heritage. The capital city, Luanda, is a bustling metropolis with a vibrant nightlife and a mix of modern and colonial architecture. Visitors can explore the stunning landscapes of the Namib Desert, the Kalandula Falls, and the Kissama National Park, which is home to elephants, lions, and giraffes. Angola also boasts a unique cuisine, influenced by Portuguese, African, and Brazilian flavors, and a lively music scene, with traditional genres like kizomba and semba. Despite its tumultuous history, Angola is a welcoming and fascinating destination for adventurous travelers.
Angola Immunization Recommendations and Requirements
Before traveling, make sure you are up-to-date on all of your routine immunizations including influenza and COVID-19. Note that many vaccines that are now considered "routine" were not available until recent decades so you may not have received them at all, depending on your age and other factors.
Infants, 6 to 11 months old should receive one dose of MMR and Hepatitis A prior to visiting Angola. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
