Description of Cangandala National Park

Cangandala National Park is a protected reserve situated in Malanje Province of Angola. It covers a total area of 600 square kilometers. Cangandala National Park that is located in Malanje Province and covers 600 square km is the smallest national park in the country. Yet it is fairly well developed comparing to the rest of the country. You can buy supplies that you might need in the towns of Techongolola and Culamagia. Although it is not advisable to buy locally prepared food. It is not much different from playing Russian Roulette with a semi- automatic pistol.
 
Cangandala National Park was found in 1963, while Angola was under Portuguese control in order to preserve Giant Sable Antelope that was discovered here the same year. Additionally it was intended to protect the habitat of 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 park.
