Since the end of Angola’s civil war, the country has undergone massive reconstruction, which means it is steadily attracting foreign investment and more and more expats are moving to its capital, Luanda. Nevertheless, the adjustment to life in this African city may be a difficult and slow one for many expats. Most of Luanda’s population continues to live in poverty, infrastructure is in desperate need of repair and the provision of essential services such as water and electricity can be sporadic.
Despite the many drawbacks of living in this African city, expats moving to Luanda are likely to have a richly rewarding experience, both culturally and financially.
