With this sort of vehicle collection, a ‘Classic Car Club Manhattan’ does not seem too distant in Luanda.

The war years brought a spiritual awakening among men whose diversions had never before included a study of self-realization. One sweet distilment from the bitter herbs of war! Utopia must spring in the private bosom before it can flower in civic virtue. Man is a soul, not an institution; his inner reforms alone can lend permanence to outer ones.

O transito infernal (engarrafamento) de Luanda
"Cada Um Por Si, Deus Por Todos"...a famous saying by Luanda drivers..



sometimes, the traffic lights only make things worse.







and if your car doesnt have AC, you will cook like bbq chicken...with temperatures reaching 32C...but inside the cars it feels like 50C








You see this white van in front...



I got stuck behind this white van...there are two lanes though.




The other lane moved..my lane did not move one bit.



BMW X6



If you still don't understand...this senario will self explain it for you...Got stuck in traffic gridlock for about 50min...good thing i had AC



these brand new cars are destined to go the streets, to cause more traffic pain

Are you sure? without them you would be in Lagos...and believe me, driving there is pure horror...I never forget having stuck in traffic there, believe me or not: 1km 4 hours!

In the medium-term Luanda has to get rid of the ugly blue small buses which block roads and really look flimsy...and it needs to install a proper public transport which was already existent before the war, btw.


A combination of broader roads (I have noticed that roads are really very narrow because Luanda is an old city and was not built to cope with the influx of millions of people..but just for 500 000 people), more multi-lane highways (5-6 lanes on each side) and above all a functioning & reliable metro system will ease congestion a lot but all this will run into billions of dollars to build and an additional sum to keep it all well mantained..

BBC espantada que luxury cars sell in Luanda!

27 de abril 2012 às 11:29 ET

Carros de luxo vendem-se rápidamente em Luanda, capital de Angola. De facto, a concessionária local da Porsche não aguênta com a demanda.

Por Komla Dumor.
