UPDATE ON 24/10/2013: THIS FIELD TRIP IS NOW FULL. On Saturday, October 26 the Angola Field Trip will explore the Caves of Cabo Ledo, known by the locals as ‘Makungu a Matadi´ and located about 15 km from the town of Cabo Ledo. Quicama native Serafim Quintino will lead us as we pay a courtesy call to the Soba of Cabo Ledo who will provide a guide for us. This is an exploratory trip, we have never been here before but we are told that some of the grutas are easier to get into than others. After Cabo Ledo, a 4 x 4 is necessary. Take along a packed lunch and liquids.
This field trip is open to members of the Angola Field Group; must have valid passport with visa in hand.
On Saturday, October 26, we will depart from a downtown meeting point at 6:30. We will join participants from Luanda Sul at a designated meeting point. We plan to be back in town by sundown. Please do not sign up for this trip if you are on a tight schedule. It is impossible to guarantee when we will be back.
The meeting point details will be provided only to people who have been confirmed for this trip, after you have been confirmed.
How to sign up: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with: 1. the names of all the passengers in your vehicle and cell phone numbers. 2.
