Noqui (or Noki) is a town and municipality in Zaire Province in Angola.[1] It is on the Congo River, just across the border from the city of Matadi in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Noki was the site of an early European trading post. In 1884 Alexandre Delcommune was appointed director of the Belgian factories in Boma and Noki.[2] In December 1884 Lieutenant Eduard Schulze tried to found a German colony near Noqui.[3]
