Interactive Map of Africa map

Countries and regions in Africa

Africa is vast and diverse. And while there’s some truth to the old clichés – think safari lodges, acacia trees and blood-red sunsets – the mother continent has far more to offer adventurous visitors. Whether you want to get lost in the labyrinthine souks of Morocco, or seek out great apes in Uganda’s misty mountains, our map of Africa is the ideal place to start.

Hot sunshine scorches the northern third of the continent, where seas of sand swirl past ancient monuments, including the spellbinding Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. Further south on the Africa map, the national parks and game reserves of countries like Kenya and Tanzania teem with wildlife. With a little patience, the ‘Big Five’ – lions, elephants, leopards, buffaloes and rhinos – can all be spotted here.

Africa’s outer edges are among the most exciting parts of the continent to explore. Watch the Atlantic Ocean gnaw at shipwrecks on Namibia’s dramatic Skeleton Coast, see Cape Town’s skyline shimmer from the top of Table Mountain, or let yourself be mesmerised by Madagascar’s weird and wonderful creatures. Give Africa a chance, and it’ll get under your skin.
