Top Ten African Countries to Live In


The Top Ten

1 South Africa South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

I think that only some countries in Africa are good for living... I think South Africa, Nigeria and Morocco are some good countries to live in because of their economies...

When it comes to living standards, South Africa is doing pretty well for Africa, and the economy is adequate, and it's a fairly safe place to live. - JustAnAccount

I'm Zimbabwean but South Africa is a great place to visit. Great culture all-round, best beer, what's not to like there? - AGK

This is the worst👿

2 Morocco Morocco
3 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt is one of the best countries in Africa to live in, not too much racism (South Africa), not war-torn (South Sudan, Somalia), not impoverished (CAR, DRC, South Sudan), lots of people speak English (Portuguese and French speaking countries) and it has a lot of old buildings (most Sub-Saharan countries).


4 Nigeria Nigeria
5 Algeria Algeria Algeria, officially People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a sovereign state in North Africa on the Mediterranean coast.
6 Angola Angola
7 Kenya Kenya Kenya, officially the Republic of Kenya, is a country in Africa and a founding member of the East African Community.

Very diverse both demographically and geographically - JustAnAccount
