Worst Countries in Africa
The Top Ten
Famine. Piracy. Hunger. War. Al-Shabaab. The reasons you do not want to be here.
I don't agree somalia is the worst country in africa, I can say south africa is the worst because of raping ladies make me to say this and somalia just need goverment and stop taking corruption.
Is there a single good country in Africa? No disrespect to people living here, my heart is bleeding when I read about their misery. No one should be treated like that. Women rights, freedom of religion, education? I won't even start on that. 95% of women in Somalia have suffered female genital mutilation. This place is hell on Earth.
Somalia is the worst of the worst. Most of the countries in Africa are... pretty bad. But Somalia takes the cake. Lowest HDI on the planet... government with little control over the country... pirates. war... famine... Al-Shabaab, Somalia is hell on EarthV 59 Comments
Always at conflict with (regular) congo, zaire picked the worst place to pick their capital. Kinshasa may be the worst city in the world. A stones throw away from the much better but still bad (regular) congo, it was wrongly placed in the far southwestern side of the country. All of the gold mines are run by warlords, not the country. Children are forced to go to war over the mines. Other children are forced to mine the gold. I don't know why Zaire isn't up at the top of the list.
Rape, shootings, hijackings, mutilations, genocides, group rapes, gender mutilations, point blank shooting and more. - nonofyall

Rape. Shootings. Hi-jackings. The reasons you do not want to be here.
Worst Country in Africa.. I'd rather die of hunger or poor health care than seeing my wife being raped and watching them pour boiling water down my son's throat.. For a cellphone and a few Rand!
Cape Town rocks... like any other country there are good and bad places to go. I love my home and it can't be racists the government is black empowered and they supply homes for the underprivileged, We have good and bad situations as each country does. Be wise don't criticize.
The sad thing is that I live here and your correct it is the worst countryV 50 Comments
Nigeria is too over rated and it's full of hate, shooting and war! They need to learn that putting tyres and burning people to death from their neck is not what life is about! Nigeria is not bout that life and they think they are the most famous country in Africa, yeah maybe they are but for all the WRONG reasons.
Nigeria have lots of gangs this is happening all the time gangs kidnapping children.
Nigeria is not one of the worst countries on Africa. People need to stop and think. Worse things happen in the United States everyday. Just because some people do bad things, does not mean it's a horrible country. It's a beautiful country. Africa is a better place than the United States. At least people respect others and don't look down on others there. Americans better stop looking at just the bad things before they judge anywhere, period. Not just Africa.

What place is this and I think Sierra Leone is the worst or Liberia
Seriously what is up with the name
Why with the name
Data indicates it is Niger.V 15 Comments
Uganda is the safest country in Africa. The people are nice. Uganda is gifted by nature, there is a lot to see in Uganda...
Never go here if you're a homo.
It's a beautiful place but a bit too much begging.
I think Uganda maybe in 2nd positionV 17 Comments
It's so damn awful.
I when to Burundi and got Malaria in one day, the worst country ever
Burundi is so small and poor great place for a terrorist and plenty of diseases
Poopoopeepee I hate ccokieV 6 Comments
Eritrea has only been in one war and there has never been a hi-jacking. That one war was to make it a real country.
Eritrea is one of the most peaceful places in Africa. There is absolutely no crime, and the war helped define Eritrea. Its colonization by Italy couldn't even hold Eritrea down in the past.
I'm so happy the broke from Ethiopia's grasp!
North Korea of Africa - ikerevievsV 13 Comments
Sudan is number one worst in Africa and the world because the war are boiling in every side of country and people are kill each other daily then the government steal the resources every top of hour, in term of economic Sudan is zero and no political stability no security no government no humanity.
Sudan is one of the worst country in Africa because of the ruling party that divided the country into two country and also they practice racism against black African people in Sudan and engaging the war in their land.
Beautiful language and country. Had experience with kindness by them
Sudan as so much problems with the usa. It is going to a civil war gas problems oil problems police are like they are in ww2 poor people die while the presedent is like kim jung un of africa no airlines even it had been so bad that any one should come back after 3 days poor money no clean waterV 16 Comments
Don't forget to buy your kidnapping and ransom insurance before visiting this must see pike of...
Just don't go to Mali
Chad is one of the least developed countries in the world, it should be in the top 10.
Chad so pretty
It's one of the least developed country but their solidarity and their generosity couldn't be discribed by few words.
Shut the hell up chad is a beautiful country don’t judge just cause u never been there.V 3 Comments
It's been a country since 2011, and there's already a civil war, poverty, and terrorists. Wraps up the country in 1 sentence.
Nothing nice from this country. Its like we were transferred from one corner of the hell to another corner. the same old stories of north Sudan against Southerners...No surprise some of us born in 80s still do not have seen real peace. This Country should have been ranked 1st not Somalia.
War with Sudan... terrorists... everything about the country is bad
Makes regular Sudan look like paradiseV 9 Comments
Worse than hell and pure sheet hole. Stupid and retarded primitives, cunning, lazy and filthy baboons.
Its true. It was better when Ian Smith led. The people had a better standard of life, all the people. Now it has the most racist gang for a Government. Now its Mad Max with lots of people.
There not even a fact why people are saying its bad, zim is a nice place
Rhodesia was betterV 16 Comments
This country's flag looks like some little toddler painted on it
Suffered a terrible coup during the 1960s and 70s which destabled the country massively
50% of the country is completely illiterate
Has the potential to be very rich due to the heavy presence of diamonds, but abysmal management, corruption being massive and very weak government regulations, the proceeds of very limited and the vast majority slump back into poverty
Nearly everyone relies on agriculture and substance agriculture, but the nutrient poor tropical soil and unpredictable weather means it is very unreliable
Plus very bad sectarian violence, and general poverty all over, people starving and poor healthcare, couldn't live there
Most poorly educated country in the world. Over half of the poplulation can't read or write
Ebola, that's all I have to say
No hate or anything but this country has been riddled with disease for the past few years so definitely not somewhere I don't want to go
Just don't even go so not modern
A craphole. Worst than Living alone in Antarctica.V 4 Comments
Always on the verge of civil war..corruption from top to bottom..roughly 70 percent of female population victims of sexual assault..cannibalism prevalent, etc..
The government is our problem our sweet and beautiful land.
Was held by the army and had to promise I would come back with money to bribe my way out.
Nice country, my girl justina is from thereV 6 Comments
I am a white American my first time in Africa when to Ethiopia and I love it the people are very friendly And they have good energy really happy people changes my outlook In life and very safe
They should first learn how to speak. They speak like babies who are still learning a new language
Sh ooting? So you know no one have a gun in Ethiopia nobody shoot At school kid in Ethiopia like they do in the US we might be poor but we are happy and proud of our country
I strongly believe Ethiopia is the worst country in Africa about the human right. Ethiopia government was arrested thousands of people last couple of years also arrested a lot of journalists'. people of Ethiopia cannot express their views.
My parents are from ethiopia and it's not bad. It's actually really pretty and it's an amazing place to visit. Amazing food also. The only thing I'd argue is the political rights. But they have a new minister that is helping the country a lot. It is a good country and should be in like the 30sV 19 Comments
Libya is a failed state and should be much higher on the list. ISIS is running wild and gangs rule local districts.
I wish I could help out all those people
Terrorism, slavery, etc.
Libya is a great place with wonderful hardworking people.V 4 Comments
Disease. Hunger. Violence. Poverty. War. No Infrastructure. The reasons you do not want to be here.
I mean they have a gun on their flag, that's really says everything
My friend got shot... they need better gun control
This country is more dangerous all the Mozambique leader's are corrupt the police the soldier
The only thing there do is stiling for its people, I'm was born there and I can tell I don't even think to go back and stay there. This is not a country to leave in
As a vampire country
The only buying guns for war
Its not the worst country or the best country in Africa, but people still go there for the amazing Egyptian History. Yes, the country's government is corrupt and horrible, but there is a change coming around for Egypt, one that will attract more tourists.
Cause of the military leadership in the country and the Human rights violations
Egypt is full arrogant people and their government is discussing
No they are rely nice only white stupid people I am Chinese and I think that white people should be band friendly m living thereV 5 Comments

Why would Mauritania be on here? I know it has terrorists, But it is the best country in Africa to me. - TexasRealm
Not happy even though the flag suggests happiness.
A racist state where arabs are on top and black people are enslavedV 1 Comment
The government doesn't offer a good life for its citizen's and it suffers from corruption and Embezzlement of public funds and Rulers who refuse to step out they only care about their personal Interests instead of people who voted for them. I hope this would change so Algeria could offer A decent life for its people.
It is a cool country but is kind of crowded and the streets are busy. If only the land was better too for farming as there aren't much parks.
As the other one said... Rich but people are held back somehow from having good lives and enjoy that money...
Awesome country. It obviously should be very far from the list.Issues: Population is HUGE in the capital which leads to a lot of traffic.
Rich country but it's people are poor because of the government..
Best future to you Algeria from a Zambian.
That's Not a Country, Get This Out Of Here, Sahara is Moroccan.
This should not be here. The nation is not bad. It merely is constantly under invasion. Thousands killed from this terror.
Not even a country
That s not even a contry
This country has Ebola.
Nice people beautiful mountains. Bad governance
Would be much higher on the list...but no one bothers to go there to experience it.
HOW DID Ghana GOT HERE! Ghana is one of the best, richest, peaceful, beautiful country in Africa.
Ghana is an amazing country with lots of natural resources
Ghana is rich in culture
Very corrupt and dirtyV 11 Comments
This is a beautiful place and very civilized people. Good infrastructure, too. Brilliant for tourists and investment. Peaceful people, kind people and natural resource rich country. One of the best countries to live in or to visit.
Zambia is one of the best countries to live in, visit, etc. Its very modern, beautiful tourist attractions, attractive to investors, peaceful loving people and very liberal. Great nation!
Zambia has hang gliding Victoria Falls and game reserves Zambia is one of the best places in Africa
Zambia has grown up, I lived and worked there for two years in the mid 70s and returned last year there for a holiday. So much to offer.V 2 Comments
EG is a probably one of the most ignored countries in Africa, but it is also one of the most extremely corrupt countries in the world. It is not far away from the DPRK in terms of it's lack of press freedoms. It has some very, very, very rich people in the government, but most people live in complete abject poverty, ruled by the son of one of Africa's most insane dictators in history. Like father like son.
Dangerous place, don't visit unless you have protection
Malawi is one of the top 10 safest in africa, with wonderful people and breathtaking atmosphere. This country should not be here.
The most unhealthiest county in the world.
Lovely country and people but cleptomanyia is rife and very unreliable power supply are the major draw backs
If you think Kenya's bad. Shut the fudge up what do you know. have you been there? Get Kenya off the list or I'll take you of the list. Better watch out. fudge you and your family. sick people take Kenya off the list
Look, if any of you wants to explain more, they should message me right in the face! Man-to-man, sorry teen. - DontMessWithDaddylonglegs
Best country in Africa from tourism to civilization. The uncivilized we are the ones living abroad and portraying our country negatively...
Its hell here they are taxing everything. if you are planning on coming here for your own crazy reasons please stay there, you will be taxed for even speakingV 8 Comments
I heart this country also has civil war. Why African people like to conflict in domestic so much
I Think That is Should Be Number 22
Angola is pretty good - CerealGuy

Too many Ladwa's

This dumb list put this Beautiful country here for some reasons there are few silly reasons to hate this country and positives In this country Is x8 bigger than the negatives - ougnou
This beautiful country deserves its credit of street and beach football culture, passionate for things they love and everyone is good at one thing at the very least, usually something they're passionate about
Why is this beautiful country the worst its the best it is so bright smart
And loves its soccer its the best my people
The food and the art and culture all of the history this shouldn't even be on this listV 3 Comments
This deserves to be on the top 10 worst countries in Africa. The community is ignorant and arrogant. The rich are selfish and the poor are bitter and both parties will show their worst most of the time. Let's not forget to mention that foreigners are among the most disliked people in this nation.
But think there is a lot of problems in Botswana.. Even the government know about that.. What you see is better and what you didn't see.. All African is bad place to live.
Its one of the best African countries to leave in, They believe in peace and harmony like the Namibians.
Botswana and Namibia are the most peaceful countries in Africa so I don't know why Botswana is on this list
This is such disrespect. I am a motswana and botswana is not a bad country. It is full of peace. These people are full of hatred and disrespect.
A hole between Togo and Nigeria.
Voodoo cult guys come out at night and kill you
That is not a true comment People from all the way from Ghana travel here to trade goods, this is one of Africa's more stable country. It's lijke South Africa wihout the unemployment rate
Corruption is the only problem for young scholar. Beside that, this country have a lot secret to be discover again. God gave them everything that exist in this world.
The best country but too much corruption & internet scammers... Beware of scammers... Apart from it everything is good... The most peaceful place... Very interesting people
I like the response of public
Cameroon at times is refered to as one of the most peaceful countries in the world. I wander the kind of peace where only some people are selected based on connections or good fathers to role and make decision for they country.
Nothing is good about cameroon. Politics and development in Cameroon has an inverse relationship.
What? I love the Seychelles!
Overall, it is a Peaceful country to live in, 70% of it is covered in mountains and the 2 million people make use of the 30%. Country is completely landlocked by South Africa but still manages to be independent. Life in this country is amazing
One of the ldcs
Such a great film. Great for getting my daughters and my husband together in one room, instead of him going down in the basement and drinking beer. I must confess that the movie is especially amazing if you drink a little wine, am I right ladies?
Madagascar is famous for it's lemurs it is a great vacation
Loved it. I epecially love the sassy hippo! When they went to the circus and slayed the entire show was such an iconic part. Overall 4.5 stars. They get half a star off because they abuse King Julien's little pet, it's so sick!

Ivory coast is one of the best countries in Africa. Rich culture, capable of feeding its own people. Only problem is France interfering in the internal affairs of Ivory Coast have created lot of instability.
It's not that to bad
Ivory coast has a beautiful name, culture and land. It's a good country.💟
This country is the worst in Africa, people there are very stupid, when a tourist walks on the way they will always insult him. There are no rights in this country. If you ever wished to visit this place then you are in a wrong place.
Rwanda a good place
Worst country I have ever been to
Best country in the world
One of the safest s countries in the world
Capital:Kigali is the cleanest city in Africa
This place is cool
