About Angola Facts

Angola lies on the Atlantic coast of southwestern Africa; its small (but oil-rich) northern province, Cabinda, is separated from the rest of the country by a small part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Congo River. Angola's narrow coastal plain, where most of the people live, rises to a high interior plateau with rain forests in the north and dry savanna in the south.
