Title: Top 10 Most Populated Countries in Africa


1
Top 10 Most Populated Countries in Africa
(2013)
2
10. Sudan- 35,363,00 inhabitants
  • Prior to July 2011 Sudan used to be the largest
    country in Africa (and 10th largest in the world)
    but it was divided unevenly into Sudan and South
    Sudan on that date. After the split, the
    northernmost section, known as Sudan, is the
    third largest country in Africa area-wise, and
    has a great deal of desert terrain within its
    borders.

9. Uganda - 35,363,000 inhabitants
  • If you like the idea of a country where the
    average temperature is a pleasantly warm 28C and
    the people are known for their warmth and
    friendly hospitality, then Uganda is a country
    that you should consider visiting!

8. Algeria - 38,295,000 inhabitants
  • Being a former French colony, it will come as no
    surprise that much of the population speaks the
    language, with up to 80 per cent of the
    population speaking Arabic too. Algeria is, by
    land area, the largest country in Africa (after
    Sudans split) but the population is restricted
    by the vast swathes of desert that comprise much
    of that area. Only 12 per cent of the land area
    is inhabited.

7. Kenya - 46,291,000 inhabitants
  • Kenya is ideally situated on the equator and has
    plenty of fertile soil for growing crops of tea,
    coffee, flowers, fruit, vegetables and grains,
    while her wildlife is world famous. People come
    from all over the world to go on a safari in
    Kenya to see the big five (rhinoceros, buffalo,
    lion, elephant and leopard)

6
6. Tanzania - 45,950,000 inhabitants
  • Tanzania is blessed for several reasons firstly,
    it is home to the only mountain in Africa that
    always has snow on its peaks Mt Kilimanjaro!
    Secondly, Tanzania has long been known as the
    cradle of mankind as Olduvai Gorge is the place
    where the oldest human remains (some two millions
    years old) have been found.

5. South Africa - 52,982,000 inhabitants
  • Africas jewel, the rainbow nation of South
    Africa, is probably the best known and most
    visited of all the African countries. Table
    Mountain in Cape Town is an instantly
    recognisable feature and boasts, just on the
    mountain itself, more plants than the entire
    United Kingdom!

4. Democractic Republic of Congo - 74,618,000
inhabitants
  • Given the turmoil currently plaguing the DRC it
    is highly unlikely that many people are visiting
    the nation for purely pleasurable pursuits, but
    one piece of advice to anyone visiting do not
    snap photographs of villagers and natives without
    asking permission. There is a superstition
    amongst some tribes that to be photographed is to
    lose a piece of the soul or spirit and given
    the vapid and inane stream of selfies that is
    currently plaguing the Internet, who is to say
    that they are completely wrong?

3. Egypt - 84,605,000 inhabitants
  • Much is known about ancient Egypt, thanks to
    their philosophy of preserving material goods,
    pets and the bodies of important citizens. The
    Pyramids, Valley of the Kings and the Sphinx are
    major attractions in Egypt, along with many other
    important sites, like Karnak and Abu Simbel.
    Tourists come to Egypt, not only to glory in the
    wonders of ancient Egypt

10
2. Ethiopia - 86,614,000 inhabitants
  • A little known fact about Ethiopia is that it is
    believed to be the place where coffee was
    discovered. A goatherd noticed that his charges
    would become restless after chewing the leaves of
    a particular plant and brought this fact to
    general attention. This happened in the Kaffa
    area of the country and the name coffee is
    believed to have arisen from the word.

11
1. Nigeria - 177,096,000 inhabitants
  • The country has abundant mineral wealth and is
    blessed with stable geography (as is most of
    Africa, with earthquakes, landslides and similar
    natural disasters being all but unheard of!)
    Nigerians as a whole tend to be snappy dressers,
    proud of their appearance and confident when
    meeting strangers disconcertingly so to more
    reticent nationalities!
