Top Ten Most Famous African Countries


The Top Ten

1 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.

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

Kenya the people are just awesome... The police now are using FN SCAR and CN Scorpion Evo rifles... The most sophisticated sub machine guns in the world

2 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.

Nigeria should be #1

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

Has it all.

5 Ghana 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 peaceful country and the people are very welcoming, I think it should be #1

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.

In addition, the country prouds herself as the birthplace of Coffee, Rasteferianism, humankind (Lucy) and African Independence movement.

8 Uganda Uganda

I think Uganda is the Pearl of Africa, its beautiful and good

Do you know da wei

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!
