There are no official ferry links between Angola and other nations. As of 2003, it was at least possible to enter Angola via a small passenger ferry near Rundu in Namibia. There was both an Angolan and Namibia border official present. The crossing was mostly used by Angolans for the purposes of acquiring food and other supplies in Namibia. There are as of 2007 ferries running from the enclave of Cabinda to Luanda, which can be useful to avoid the unstable DRC. They carry cars as well. Seek local advice for when they depart. Sources claim that they run twice a week, cost $180 per person bike included, and take 14 hours to do the trip 2005.If there are no ferries, there might be cargo planes that you and your car can ride on between Cabinda and Luanda (http://www.mail-archive.c...). Be warned - these planes are unsafe. Use them at your own peril.

You can go in from Namibia at the border post near OshikangoNamibia/NgivaAngola.

Entering from the North was, as of 2002, via Luvo, a small town on the Kinshasa-Matadi 'road'. If you want to drive through Angola, it's a real experience. Off the beaten track, road conditions might not be quite what you are used to so be prepared, particularly during the rainy season where potholes are likely to be a frequent occurrence. Also, keep a look out for livestock and the overloaded vehicles of the Angolan residents.

Since 2006 there has been extensive road building by China, so travel is getting smoother. However, the construction has not always been the best quality - so check on current road conditions.

Travelling by road from anywhere you will need the following:As you will need a 4 x 4 vehicle you should have the following documents:Police clearance from country of origin, where the vehicle is registered, original registration certificate of the vehicle, licence discs or insurance that is up to date. Make copies of these documents and get them certified.Make a copy of your passport and soon after entry before going to customs and soo after immigration make copies of the entry stamp. Have a passport sized photo. Lastly ensure that you have a colour photo of you car front, rear and driver´s side. If you do not have these documents, your car will not be allowed into the country. If you are not the owner of the vehicle, have an original and copy of the original letter from the owner clearly stating your name, passport number and driver´s license that you have been authorised to drive the vehicle into Angola.

This applies if you are a foreigner and not a resident. If you are Angolan or a resident foreigner - you will not be allowed to drive into angola in a vehicle that is more than 3 years old and not a left hand drive!
