Benguela Port (port code: AOBUG) is a seaport in Angola. It is located in the south of Luanda, the capital of Angola, 30 kilometers south of Lobito Port, Angola’s second busiest port.
The port was long the centre of an important trade, especially in slaves to Brazil and Cuba. It was once the third largest port of slave embarkation on the coast of Africa.
Ships have to anchor about a mile off the shore, in 4 to 6 fathoms (7 to 11 meters) and transfer loads to smaller boats which use five or six jetties.
