Lobito is an Atlantic port town in the west of Angola, and an important centre for trade in Africa. It is built on a natural harbour which gives the town its unique shape, with its long quay and golden beaches, and it features a temperate climate most of the year. The town is becoming increasingly popular with tourists, who are realising that Lobito is a great place to watch the sunset, explore old Portuguese buildings or cast out for some world-class fishing.
Following a period of civil unrest, the city now has a thriving economy and is one of Africa’s key exporters and manufacturers of small ships, refined sugar, canned fish, and building materials. But Lobito isn’t just a working town, it is also filled with vibrant restaurants, bars and plenty of waterspouts and beachside activities.
Angola is a developing country and accommodation can vary hugely. It is therefore advisable to book through a trusted third party that can provide advice on the best properties and areas. Whilst there are several hotels in Lobito itself, there is also the option of serviced apartments, which provide a cost effective and flexible way of spending an extended stay in the town.
Our range of properties in Lobito are selected for their high standard of furnishings, the convenience and safety of their location, as well as the level of comfort which they provide in terms of furnishings and mod cons.

Tourism is a major source of revenue for Angola, and Lobito. Subsequently, the town is full of tourist activities, including the iconic beach houses and Zulu bars facing overlong the ocean, and numerous watersports activities, including angling, surfing and kayaking. The various places to eat and drink, from fine dining to local and ethnic cuisine, offer the chance for visitors to enjoy the warm evenings and vibrant culture of Angola. Tourism is a major source of revenue for the city and the locals are only too willing to be helpful and friendly.
The town does not feature any major shopping districts, as there is not the local demand, but visitors will find they can get everything they need from the numerous grocery stores dotted around Lobito, which has the Maxi Supercado and several U Save Shoprites, each offering groceries at reasonable prices.
Lobito has a bus service which is reasonably reliable and covers the town itself and surrounding areas, as well as some longer routes to towns such as Catumbela and Benguela. However, if you are planning an extended stay in Lobito, then the best idea is probably to rent your own vehicle. There are several hire companies in the town and prices are very reasonable. Whilst the roads are serviceable, caution is advised when driving as many are in a state of disrepair, can lead to increased hazards.
Lobito is serviced by a small airport, but most international flights will be fly into Luanda, often via Portugal. A domestic flight is then the best option to get from Luanda to Lobito’s neighbouring town, Catumbela, which also has a small airport for domestic flights.
