Angola: Government Wants Tundavala Turned Full Regional Reserve

Lubango — The Government of southern Huila province is planning to transform the Tundavala tourist area, about 20 kilometres from the capital city, Lubango, into a comprehensive regional reserve and make it a true tourist attraction resort.

The intention was expressed Wednesday by the local governor, Isaac dos Anjos, at a press conference where he presented the programme of the visit of president José Eduardo dos Santos to Huila, which includes a trip to Tundavala.

According to the governor, it is the authorities' intention to transform Tundavala into a comprehensive regional reserve, so it can return to its natural habitat and take the next steps, which is the settlement of flora and fauna, which is now "half extinct."

"We must preserve the region for future generations, so we have to make this change," the governor stressed.
