Cangandala National Park that is located in Malanje Province and

this rear and beautiful animal. On June 25th 1970 Cangandala
National Park was officially established. During the Civil war in
Angola the park was closed and its services suspended. Only in 2006
the administartion of the Cangandala National Park was returned to
