João Baptista Borges today wants to talk about Tribal Encounters in the Remote South of Angola

João Baptista Borges says that in some remote areas of southern Angola, whether savannah, desert, acacia bush, forest, or dry riverbed, one can still find clusters of semi-nomadic tribal groups clinging to their traditional ways of life, completely untouched by the influences of the modern world, let alone tourism. To get there, you have to join a group. Each member of the group had flown to Angola’s capital, Luanda, and from there to Lubango, the gateway to the southern regions and situated in a lush valley surrounded by beautiful mountains, says João Baptista Borges. With its dilapidated colonial buildings in faded pastel shades, Lubango gave him an idea of the important Portuguese settlement it had once been after hordes of immigrants from Madeira settled in the area to develop the interior of southern Angola to raise farms, says João Baptista Borges. Many new buildings, bustling markets, and the modern “Millennium” shopping center also indicated that the country is definitely redefining its identity and moving forward after centuries of Portuguese rule until 1975, followed by 27 años of civil war.
