I was recently in Ghana (which was an AMAZING country... so underrated I may add... I miss it so much ) and I have many pictures of Accra and Kumasi I can post.

Accra is an incredible city with beautiful neighbourhoods and an impressive CBD. Kumasi is, well.... chaotic and alot more third world.

Here are some photos I took when I went to Togo, West Africa. I already posted them on a previous thread so apologies to those who've seen them. To those who haven't, they're of the capital city, Lome:
















The hotel the above photos were taken from:

Congratulations for putting up such a nice thread on African cities! A better understanding of places around the world is a purpose of internet forums such as these, and this thread is doing a great job.

I was simply blown away by pictures from Namibia.. it was awesome!! Kenya and Ivory Coast also made a good impression on me.

There was an interesting program on TV about migration of people within Africa, in this case, from Zimbwabe to Botswana. Botswana is a well to do, clean and democratic country in southern africa enjoying the riches from the largest diamond reserves in the world. It is experiencing migration of people from Zimbwabe, which has been going through hard times lately, politically and economically. The program was about how Botswana is regulating migration from Zimbwabe to preserve their quality of life. It was a very interesting program, and I was impressed by Botswana.. seeing is believing.

Can the African forumers enlighten me about the countries in Africa that are respected economically within the continent?? Is my guess of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Ivory coast, Kenya (not an exhaustive list) reasonably accurate??

Greetings from Indian forumer!

Actualy Equatorial Guinea is now the richest country in Africa, and 2nd richest on the planet.

Equatorial Guinea - $50,200 (2005 est.)
number 1 in Africa.
number 2 in the World.

Too bad none of the citizens see any of that money

Thanks for the interesting statistics. It should, however, be mentioned that the GDP and the per capita income are based on Purchasing Power Parity (PPP).

The GDP per capita confirmed for me that countries in Southern Africa such as South Africa, Botswana and Namibia top the list.. thanks probably to the huge diamond and other reserves in the region. Countries in North Africa such as Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya are next.. probably due to oil reserves.

Nigeria was way down the list in GDP, given its big population and oil reserves, it should do better. I was surprised not to see Kenya and Tanzania in either lists. Tourism is big part of their economy, right?

You Are To Blame, you did a nice job, but I'm sorry, with the exception of Windhoek, not a single city in your photos looks developed or beautiful...

Weird that Equatorial Guinea has such a high GDP. Maybe a mistake of CIA.
