About Iona National Park
Angola's Iona National Park is a patch of nature in the country's Namibie province. It's a place where you can get out there and enjoy game viewing, hiking, walking safaris to its rock formations and camping near the Cunene River. Don't forget the sunblock...

When you're enjoying a game drive in the park, don't be surprised if you come across ostriches. They've called this stretch of land home for many years.

Keep your eyes open for Oryx. You can often see them grazing while you're bobbing along in your safari vehicle.

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.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
