Luanda Expat Guide
Embark on a New Life in Luanda
Expat compounds in Luanda offer a high quality of life with security, large houses and swimming pools. However, the high cost of accommodation means that expatriates considering relocation will want to factor this into negotiations. Expats with families will often head to Luanda Sul, where the Luanda International School is found at the cost of a longer commute to the city center. Weekends are often when expats leave the city anyway in favor of nearby beaches and resorts. Explorers and nature enthusiasts will want to take a tour to see the stunning Kalandula Falls or discover the massive expanse of Quiçama National Park.
The main industries of Luanda are oil and diamonds, both of which continue to thrive and attract foreign investment into the city. Most expats working in Luanda are connected to these two industries through their employment at multinational companies. Due to oil revenues, Angola's economy has grown rapidly in the last decade, which in turn has brought many expats, particularly from China, South Africa, Portugal as well as other European countries.
