Top Ten Most Famous African Countries

The Top Ten

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

Best tourist attractions, many lakes, wildlife, mountains, home of the great rift valley, over 42 tribes, music and film capital, warm and loving hosts, economic giant, and many more... don't forget home of Obama and Lupita

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.

A powerhouse in its own right, economically and militarily. The icing of the cake in Africa

2 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 don't think Kenya is more Famous than Nigeria, if it were in terms of development then I assent

Nigeria is the best so it deserves to be on top. Yeah. I know. Kenya is great but not as mighty as Nigeria so you might as well put us on top because we are the best country. Period.

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

Second to none, Nigeria should be in the first place followed by Egypt then South Africa. Most brainy people on earth most especially the Yoruba's.

3 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 definitely one of the most beautiful countries in Africa.
Rich history and nice people, I like Egypt.

The most advanced country in Africa had many hot girls, nice food, civilization, the biggest city in Africa and the most powerful in Africa and the Middle East... also is have a funny people

It's famous because of the pyramids

Here you can see the Pyramid of Giza

4 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.

SA is a awe-inspiring tourist destination because there is such a variety of places to see and so many interesting activities. The climate can be relied on and the people are friendly and open-hearted. Tourism numbers have increased dramatically and accommodation is not out of reach for young travellers...

This is the best country because there are so many black people.

I think it's where it should be

The most southern african country with three capitals - darthvadern

5 Ghana Ghana, officially called the Republic of Ghana, is a sovereign unitary presidential constitutional democracy, located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, in the subregion of West Africa.

Ghana is a giant in Africa and would soon be in the world. The country is very peaceful and highly democratic. Ranked top 5 in great tourist countries in the world. Ghana's economy has been booming recently. Since last year to now, Ghana has been said by IMF and economic agencies to be the fastest growing nation on earth. There is an increased development in the form of infrastructure too.

Great country with good food and beautiful people. Very peaceful and great place for holiday

Ghana, the land of freedom. Ghana, the gateway to Africa. Ghana, an evergreen and warm land...Ghana my motherland :-).

Ghana is one of the popular countries in Africa. Thank God it is in the top 5. - teryer

One of the only two countries in Africa (along with Liberia) that weren't colonized - darthvadern

Ethiopia in much of the history of Africa has been the status quo and and an example of African freedom and black power and a location for new African movements.

Ethiopia is the best country ever. Furthermore, it is a really tough country and no other country could colonise it.

8 Uganda

Uganda is suppose to be a giant if it wasn't for bad leadership

You surely won't believe but Uganda is the pearl of Africa given the the best climate across the whole of Africa. The source of the world's longest river. No one would exclude visiting The source of river Nile, Africas biggest lake and so many water bodies of which Uganda gets revenue exporting HEP to most surrounding countries. Ugandans have the best English accent in Africa and more friendly. The country has Africa's most unique and beautiful cable bridge in Africa in the eastern city of Jinja where sky diving has attracted thousands of visitors not forgetting the Nyege nyege festivals that hold annually attracting almost 60 countries across the world to each celebrate their culture on the banks of river Nile. On a bad note but still which makes it relevant on the FAME list, Uganda was home to Africa's worst dictator.. Idd Amin dada!
