I have just finished an exploratory trip to a new alluvial project in Lunda Norte. Travelled by dirt road from Saurimo to Lucapa between the Luachimo and Chiumbe rivers and back on the “normal” road (Lucapa – Luó – Saurimo, in between the Luachimo and Chicapa rivers). It’s a land of lions, diamonds and nymphs, it’s the heartland of the Angolan diamond deposits.
Later on, I visited Luanda and had a short (close to) perfect trip just after the Barra do Cuanza. I have just published the photo gallery of last weeks’ travels on my blog; this photo is just the first of my favourites.
