Kissama National Park

Angola - Northern Angola (Luanda)

South from the capital is the Parque Nacional de Kissam.

A wildlife sanctuary set in a stunning natural setting to protect and preserve many African species, the park began as a nature reserve in 1938 and evolved into a National Park in 1957. During the Civil War years, the park was severely neglected and fell victim to poaching, but now thanks to a pioneering relief project known as Operation Noah’s Ark, the population of buffalo, elephants and sea turtles are going strong. The park received 10 Elephants by cargo plane from South Africa in 2000 and then one year later was topped up with a further 16 elephants, 12 zebras, 12 ostriches, 14 wildebeests and four giraffes.
