Angola is a wet and dry country. It's experiences rainy and dry seasons. It's relative location is in Africa and near Zambia, Namibia, and Democratic Republic of the Congo and those are the countries that border it. Angola is located on Africa. Some of Angolas interesting landforms is that the Congo and Zambezi river flows through it and has 900 miles of coastline. Angola is next to the Atlantic Ocean. And it has the most expensive city in the world Luanda.

Well first Oil makes up 90% of their exports but diamonds and iron ore are some other resources. Some of their cultural groups are Ovimbundu, Mbundu, Bakongo, and Lunda-Chokwe are the main cultural groups. Angola's population is overwhelmingly Christian. About three-fifths of the population is Roman Catholic, about one-tenth is Protestant, and the remainder is to traditional beliefs or other religions. Angolans love to party and celebrate about music and religion. Some of their traditions are lubango festival, muxima pilgrimage, sumbe music festival , and Luanda Island Feast.

C. Human - Environment Interaction

The 3 main crops that grow there are maize, tobacco, and sisal. The 3 mains jobs are a operations manager , store manager, and head of intermarcas. 3 most endangered species are the black oystercatcher, the mahogany, and the pear wood. Some of the environmental problems in Angola,a are soil erosion, and desertification because of them cutting down trees. The solution is to cut down less trees.
