Slightly north of Angola’s oil-rich area of Cabinda is the seldom-visited Congolese outpost of Ponte Noire. The bustling community with its handicraft market loaded with carved masks and woven fiber tapestries is surrounded by attractive and verdant countryside. Hidden above the city is the Diosso Gorge, where erosion has created a series of red rock cliffs and ridges. Near the gorge is the small but fascinating Ma-Loango Regional Museum, the residence of the rulers of the Kingdom of Loango for hundreds of years, all the way into the 20th century. View more
