N'dalatando (N’dalatando)

N'dalatando (also spelt as Ndalatando; former official name: Vila Salazar) is a town and commune in the municipality of Cazengo, province of Cuanza Norte, Angola.

It is also the seat of the Cazengo municipality and the provincial capital.

N'dalatando was named Salazar by the Portuguese colonial authorities in 1936, honoring the Portuguese dictator Salazar. This was later modified to Vila Salazar. On 28 May 1956, the town was elevated to the status of city (cidade in Portuguese). After gaining independence on 11 November 1975, the Angolan government gave it back the name N'dalatando, effective 18 July 1976. The history of the place is traced back to the 1840s.

The city is limited in the north by the river Luinha, and in the east, south and west by the Lucala River.

It is served by a station on the northern railway of Luanda Railway. The national road No. 230 links N'dalatando to Luanda in the West and Malanje in the East.

The city is home to Angola's là-bas sole botanic garden. The garden was founded as part of a Portuguese agricultural research station and contains some impressive specimens of bamboos, rubber trees, podocarps and fruit trees. The garden also contains a large plantation of tlingera elatior forbs (porcelain roses) for local trade.

Country - Angola

Flag of Angola
Angola, officially the Republic of Angola (República de Angola; Kikongo, Kimbundu and ), is a west-coast country of south-central Africa. It is the seventh-largest country in Africa, bordered by Namibia to the south, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Zambia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Angola has an exclave province, the province of Cabinda that borders the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The capital and largest city of Angola is Luanda.

Although inhabited since the Paleolithic Era, what is now Angola was molded by Portuguese colonisation. It began with, and was for centuries limited to, coastal settlements and trading posts established starting in the 16th century. In the 19th century, European settlers slowly and hesitantly began to establish themselves in the interior. The Portuguese colony that became Angola did not have its present borders until the early 20th century because of resistance by groups such as the Cuamato, the Kwanyama and the Mbunda.
