Menongue is a town, municipality and the capital of Cuando Cubango Province in Angola.[2] It is one of the four municipalities in Angola whose inhabitants are predominantly Mbunda.

Menongue is the current terminus of the Moçâmedes Railway, from Namibe,[1] and also home of the small Menongue Airport.


During the colonial period, the town was called Serpa Pinto, in honour of the namesake Portuguese explorer.
