3 Kenya Kenya Kenya, officially the Republic of Kenya, is a country in Africa and a founding member of the East African Community.

I have a friend who lived there. It's a very religious and nice country. The only thing wrong is that it's right next to Somalia, so terrorists could sneak in.

8 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.

South Africa is the best country in Africa. Or it was, at least, at one time. Unfortunately now there are high tensions, and there is a race war brewing here. The whites are being oppressed and many are fleeing to New Zealand, Australia, Europe, or the United States.

Coming from a Indian resident and Japanese lover, it's my favorite country of Africa. It's USA of Africa.

The Paris of Africa

They must be number 1

12 Algeria Algeria Algeria, officially People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a sovereign state in North Africa on the Mediterranean coast.

I am ashamed to be Algerian. Thankfully I was not born there but my parents make me go there every summer. It's a disgusting country. There is nothing to do and if you want to go somewhere you better have a helicopter because there is always heavy traffic. Every day, all day. It took us once 1 hour to drive 5km from the house to the beach. The only thing you can really do is go to the beach, and it's filthy. The water is green and the "sand" is full of bugs and insects. I put sand between speech marks because there are more empty plastic bottle than sand. You go to Algeria to stay at home and watch T.V.. That's what everybody does and likes. Plus, the food is not that good. Milk is disgusting. It does not taste like milk, I doubt it's real milk.

I have a good feeling about Algeria it is a beautiful place to visit

Algeria is my county and I love this country.

i agree
