WhyAfrica Road Trip Report reveals more about Angola’s Moxico Province

Cazombo is a town in the Moxico Province of Angola about 156km from the Chavuma/Caripande border post between Zambia and Angola. The Moxico Province and the region around Cazombo have attracted the interest of one or two early-stage mineral exploration projects recently.

During the civil war in Angola Cazombo was of strategic importance due to its 3-kilometre-long airstrip which the rebel movement UNITA used to receive military supplies.

A military offensive in the east of Angola by the Angolan army FAA in 2000, succeeded in driving the UNITA troops out of a string of towns and villages near the border with Zambia. On 19 September 2000 the army took control of the town of Cazombo following a reported 15-minute battle with UNITA rebels in the main street.

To find out what other secrets Cazombo, and the Moxico Province holds, buy WhyAfrica’s 2023 Road Trip Report which gives you a detailed, on the ground account of our recent trip through Namibia, Zambia, Angola, Malawi, Botswana and South Africa. The report will be available to purchase from the WhyAfrica online shop later this week. Remember, if you are a WhyAfrica partner, sponsors and members you receive free copies.
