African cities definitely look like their sister Latina cities. I can see that Africa is proud of its colonial heritage. Thumbs up Africa!

With these pictures, its hard to imagine that Africa is still suffering from poverty.

I tried to only post recent and high quality pics thats why. Most google images are however dated and the quality isn't that great.

amazing and awesome.....c'mon lets go africa... the best my impressions is from Windhoek (Namibia capital) and Nairobi cities...Windhoek is like little ordered german city in Africa, quite tidy ...Nairobi is the best city in africa, which has done the biggest progress, it is big and looks like waked monster (I mean a lot of new buildings and constructions....a lot of glass and so on ) I think that the most potential has Nairobi...anyway....Africa is waking up, & that's great

Abuja, Nigeria is a fantastic city. It is the only fully planned city on the continent and one of few in the world. It was established in 1979 but clearing of the area and construction did not commence until much later. Most of the buildings were put up in the last 10 years. It is also Africa's most expensive city in terms of real estate. Rent for a 4-bedroom house could be in excess of $20,000 a year. And just an empty plot for a residential house would set you off between $250,000 and $0.5million.

By the way, it's Nigeria's new Capital city.

In addition, there are ambitious plans to make the city the cultural capital of the entire continent, with planned museums and cultural, art and tourist infrastructure and monuments (the tallest tower in Africa, the Millenium Tower, to symbolize Nigerian unity).

Abuja's population has skyrocketed from the original 400,000 to about 2.5 million - 3 million. However most of its population is a new migrant population from other parts of the federation. During holidays, millions of people hit the highways and head out to other parts of the country, leaving the city somewhat desolate.
