Top Ten Most Famous African Countries


The Top Ten

1 Nigeria Nigeria Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall more.

I think the people are friendly and have this strong connection among themselves even though there are many ethnic groups

I don't think I need to explain much why Nigeria should be first, we are well know around the world, most of the most successful blacks are from Nigeria, and also more than 50 percent of black americans have nigerian ancestors, also the richest black man in the world is Nigerian, african music awards are being held by Nigerians, the movie industry is the largest in africa and. But I still think all african countries are know for one thing or the other. The only country I would consider to be in this first position is South africa and Egypt.

I don't need to explain why, we just are.

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

As an african I can say Kenya is the most popular in other peoples eyes. I mean, it perfectly resembles all that Africa has got to offer. I don't come from Kenya, but I know just a little less Kenyans that I do with the rest of Africa combined. But I think it has everything that an african country could have, beautiful landscapes, animals, widespread population and amazing food (and runners)

Kenya Is one of the best countries in Africa. It is a regional leader both politically and economically. Decisions that Kenya make reverberate across Africa.

So much history and culture, and breathtaking landscapes.

With breath-taking wildlife and the warm sandy beaches, Kenya offers an opportunity for investors as it's real estate and farms create wealth for investors
