The population is estimated at between eleven and thirteen million people, or about as many as Ohio or Illinois. In 2003 Angola is finally recovering from decades of war. But an estimated one out of three Angolans has been displaced by war; landmines still make much of the countryside dangerous. Despite its oil wealth, Angola ranks neat the bottom on the UN’s human development index, 161 out of 173 countries.

About Luanda
(courtesy of 
Africa Travel Association)

Luanda the capital of Angola, was founded in 1575 by the Portuguese explorer Paulo Dias de Novai and retains its heritage as a Portuguese colonial city. There are several buildings of historical significance and churches that date back to the 1600s. Luanda is divided into two parts, the ‚"baxia‚" or old part and the ‚"cidade alta‚" or new part. The main visitor attractions are the Fortress, the National Museum of Anthropology, and the Museum of Slavery along the coast from Luanda. Kissama National Park, 70 km south of Luanda is home to a great variety of wildlife. The broad Atlantic Coast of Angola offers superb beaches. As an example, the city of Luanda is built around a bay, with popular public beaches just five minutes from the city center. Traditional Angolan cuisine has a strong Portuguese influence. Local arts and crafts can be purchased in many marketplaces in Angola. Items made from ebony, rosewood, straw, malachite, bronze and pottery are all available. Other popular items to purchase are wooden masks and traditional instruments such as marimbas, kissanges, xingufos, ankle rattles and drums.

After many years of civil war, reconstruction of this beautiful country is an immediate priority. With the long range benefits derived from hosting an organization such as the Africa Travel Association, the country is well on its way.

Sunday on TravelTalkRADIO, His Excellency Eduardo Chingunji, Minster for Hotels and Tourism, focuses on introducing Angola as a warm and welcoming nation

Since the 50's this little country in Africa has been stricken with war and political strife, known as the 'Armed Struggle'. In 2002 Rebel leader Jonas Savimbi, who led Unita, was killed ending 30 years of war. With three years of peace is behind the Angolans, this small country has gone through their time of healing and now is ready to open it's doors to tourism.

Mr. Chingunji also talks about the importance that his  government places on developing tourism infrastructure and the tourism product. 

The fact that the Government of Angola has accorded the Africa Travel Association's 9th Cultural & Ecotourism Symposium in LUanda Oct. 30-Nov 4.  the status of a State event, is indicative of the recognition of the key role that tourism can play in the economy of the country. the country's Prime Minister and First Lady will open this first ever ATA event held in Angola.

At the southern end of the African continent’s western bulge, Togo sits on  the Gulf of Guinea, surrounded by Burkina Faso to the north, Benin to the east and Ghana to the West.

If there had to be a popularity poll amongst countries in West Africa, Togo would probably emerge as a likely favourite. Its capital city, Lome, and the beaches that surround it, are a big draw for most vacationers. Further off the beaten track, one can experience unique village cultures, with their colourful markets and festivals.

Travel Talk Radio believes
T
ravel is a catalyst for creating communication, peace, and commerce among the countries 
and communities of the world. It's difficult to fight with a culture where you have shared a glass of refreshment, 
visited their neighborhoods and experienced their customs. And besides its really fun to get out there and jump on a train, 
bus or plane, walk into a new environment, 
taste new interesting food and talk with the locals. Building memories that are packed 
with experiences of extraordinary places, great people and exciting events are at 
the cornerstone in living a fruitful and harmonious life.
