Entering  Luanda you are also facing the  private group taxi’s called’ Kangongeiro’, a  painted in blue and white. They are private ly owned and rented out to the driver. For each day they pay the owner a fixed fee and what they earn more is their profit. A round trip to the city will cast as much as US$2,00 (AOA200,00) so ver cheap and fast transport. For safety….. i would not recommend it.dscn8142-copy
