ship 4x4 by air from Cabinda to Luanda (Angola)
 
Hi
We are travelling through Africa and we'll be in Gabon in a couple of days
I heard about the possibility to go to Cabinda and then take a military cargo air flight to Luanda in Angola.
Is there someone that have more details ?
It will be nice for us
Thanks in advance

Check around to see if TransAfrik has any flights with their Hercules (L-382) heading back from Cabinda to Luanda - if there's space on the plane, you can negotiate directly with the crew - straight cash, no receipts. Just drive the thing on board and stay in it till you drive it off.

I doubt if you will have to worry about DGR forms or any other formalities like that, the only paper anyone will be concerned about is the green stuff.

Hi
Me again travelling, just to say Flying with the car from Cabinda to Luanda is possible. Quite hard but we made it the 1st of May after waiting for 4 days at the military airport.
So there are several cargo flight per day but with small planes. You have to wait for a big antonov and there are about 2 or 3 flight per week and they never know when it comes. You just have to go to the airport. On the left side, there's the military base. You just tell that you want to see the commandant who only speak portuguese. You have to bargain for the price. We paid 540 Euros for the flight with us in the car ! but one hour after we were in Luanda and it was a great experience ! If you have a big car may be it's not possible Our Toyota HZJ78 pass just inside and ea had to take out the tyres from the roof
Bye
