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 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...

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

I think Morocco as one of top destinations in the world and definitely top 1 in Africa makes a really good place of living which is capable to get improved

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 Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves.
