AA Safaris – Angola Travel

Getting to Flamingo


From within Angola:

Self drive:

Flamingo Lodge is situated south of the city of Namibe. You will therefore need to take the airport road which leads to Tombwa. It is advisable to re-fuel in Namibe. From the Pumangol fuel station you will travel approximately 45km, where you will see the Flamingo Lodge sign situated on the right-hand side of the road. Once you have turned off the main road it is recommended to lower your tyre pressure to 1.5 bar and engage 4H. You will then follow the dry river bed for 23km, there are many roads but all of them lead down to the beach. Once you hit the beach, keep left – you should soon see Flamingo and be welcomed by a friendly face and a cold beer.


Transfers can be arranged, in advance, from Namibe or Lubango Airport.

International flights:

There are international airline flights between Windhoek and Lubango every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. Transfers are available from Lubango Airport and should be arranged prior to your arrival. The drive from Lubango to Flamingo takes approximately 4 hours. It is a very scenic route that will take you down the extraordinary Serra da Leba pass and across an ever-changing landscape, making it a pleasant journey.

For those wishing to fly in with their own plane, you can fly directly to Namibe Airport. Contact us for more details should you wish to pursue this as an option.
