Ah, the wildebeest. Mr. Wildebeest over here is one of the wildlife that's proudly on Iona National Park's resume of African creatures you can spot while in the park.

Oh, yes, cheetah roam the Iona National Park plains too. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled if you want to check this guy off your to-see list while on safari. It's not always easy to spot the fastest land animal on earth!

They say that before Angola was an independent country, and before the Angolan Civil War, Iona was an "animal paradise, rich in big game". Thanks to poachers and the crumbling of important infrastructure, Iona National Park is a little less of the wildlife-rich paradise it once was. There's still more than enough wildlife roaming its plain nowadays though to make for an unforgettable safari.
