Capital Of Africa - List Of Countries In Africa And Their Capitals


Your are searching for "Capital of Africa" on the net? Here you are! But your search may not yield you the expected result because Africa is not a country. Africa is one of the seven continents of the world and is made up of 54 different countries. Africa is the 2nd largest continent on the planet and the second most-populous continent in the world after Asia.

As you can see, there is nothing called capital of Africa, the search should be "capital of the countries in Africa. Africa is a collection of fifty four individual countries, including Western Sahara, a member state of the African Union but whose statehood is disputed by Morocco.

South Sudan is Africa's newest country after it became an independent state on the 9th of July 2011 from Sudan. The current capital of South Sudan is Juba, which is also the largest city in the country. Some people considered Pretoria to be the capital of Africa but this is not the case, it is just the capital of South Africa which is one of the 54 countries in Africa.
