African Geography Trivia Questions

1. Starting at the most western landlocked nation, Mali is separated from the Atlantic ocean by the width of one small country. Which one?

From Quiz
All Sand But No Beaches: Landlocked Africa

Answer: Senegal

Mali is the eighth largest country in area in Africa. It is a peanut-shaped country with a fertile southwest section where most of the population resides. Mali borders Senegal to the west, Mauritania to the northwest, Algeria to the northeast, Niger to the east, Burkina Faso to the southeast, Ivory Coast to the south, and Guinea to the southwest. The small southern portion is cultivated around the Niger and Senegal Rivers, while the central semi-desert is the Sahelian semi-arid zone, separating the green of the south from the harshness of the vast northern desert Saharan zone. The closest coastline is through the Senegal River to the Atlantic but it is not navigable for its entirety. There is a road from the capital Bamako to the Atlantic coast through Senegal but it is 1200 km and of poor quality. The Niger (with 1,700 kilometres in Mali) is Mali's largest river. According to the Library of Commerce, the Niger is generally described as "Mali's lifeblood", a source of food and drinking water, its main irrigation source, and historically for transportation. However, it is a long way to the ocean. It flows northeast from Bamako to Timbuktu where it swings hard right and travels to the coast via Niger, Benin and Nigeria, a distance of 3400km. In modern Mali, the main transport route from Mali is south, 1100km by road to the Ivory Coast port city of Abidjan. Sixteen of Africa's 55 countries are landlocked. Africa's landlocked countries are some of the poorest countries in the world with 14/16 classified as "low" on the Human Development Index. Africa's landlocked countries must all depend on neighbouring countries that have marine borders for the transportation of goods. This means potential delays, certainly higher costs such as additional costs from tariffs and duties placed on international border trade, and even the lack of development of economies. (This causes a lack of ability to export goods competitively). Most of Africa's landlocked countries are also poorly governed and have been troubled with civil unrest. Trouble exporting goods suppresses growth in the manufacturing sector and, as such, landlocked African nations (LLN) tend to rely on commodities and natural resources for income. In some cases only one or two commodities. eg Botswana and the Central African Republic are dependent on gold and diamonds with price drops causing chaos in such countries' economies. Most African LLNs have poor governance as they are generally young independent countries with little experience in running countries. Robert Mugabe ruined the once prosperous country of Zimbabwe which he ruled for forty years. Ethiopia became landlocked because it allowed a Marxist regime that presided over civil war and famine, to release part of it to secede to form a new country leaving Ethiopia landlocked. Most of the landlocked countries in Africa have gone through civil wars and similar conflicts, often fuelled by the differences between ethnic groups and religious groups. This is because Africa's borders, were, in the main, drawn up by the former European colonial powers, without any regard for pre-colonial allegiances of local ethnic and religious groups. Phoenix Rising team member 1nn1 was pleased to add his virtual signature as a footnote as it means he finally reached the end of the question.

2. The Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa lie in three countries. The highest peak is Toubkal (4,167 m). Which country is Toubkal in?

From Quiz Reach for the Sky in Africa

Answer: Morocco

3. Egypt is famous for its pyramids but which north African country actually has more pyramids, though not as large as those in Egypt?

From Quiz A Geographical Jaunt Across Africa

Answer: Sudan

Up until 2008, a total of 135 pyramids had been discovered in Egypt. In Sudan, approximately 240 Nubian pyramids were constructed at three different locations in Sudan, to serve as tombs for the kings and queens of Napata and Meroë. The Nubian Pyramids situated at Kush differ from the pyramids of Egypt, as they were constructed at a steeper angle than the Egyptian pyramids. Until 300 AD, pyramids were still being built in Sudan.

4. Africa is almost as wide as it is long. The southernmost point is in South Africa, the northernmost in Tunisia, and the easternmost point in Somalia. What country is the westernmost point of the mainland in?

From Quiz Think You Know Africa?

Answer: Senegal

Senegal's capital, Dakar, is the westernmost point on the mainland of Africa. If you include island nations then it would be Cape Verde, about six-hundred miles off the coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean.

5. What is the southernmost point of Africa?

From Quiz My Home, Africa

Answer: Cape Agulhas

Cape Point is the most southwestern tip of Africa. The Cape of Good Hope is where a ship travels more eastward than southward. Cape Town is the capital of the Western Province and the legislative capital of South Africa. Cape Agulhas is located in South Africa.

6. Starting with the country to its west and then following its borders round in a clockwise direction, this country's neighbours are Cote d'Ivoire, Burkina Faso and Togo.

From Quiz Neighbours in Africa

Answer: Ghana

With an area of 238,537 square kilometres/92,099 square miles, Ghana is situated in western Africa and has a coastline on the Gulf of Guinea to its south. Its capital, Accra, is in the southeast of the country on this coastline. Formed by the convergence of the Black and White Volta rivers in central Ghana, the river Volta runs southwards through the southeastern part of the country to the Gulf of Guinea. Between 1961 and 1965 the Akosombo Dam was built on this river, creating Lake Volta, which is one of the world's two largest artificial lakes.

From Quiz Facts on Africa

Answer: Burkina Faso

The Volta River's three upper branches - The Volta Blanche (White Volta), Volta Rouge (Red Volta), and Volta Noire (Black Volta) - all originated within the country, hence the earlier name.

20. Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in western Africa, with several borders. Which country, whose capital city is Bamako, occupies much of its northern and western border?

From Quiz All Sand But No Beaches: Landlocked Africa

Answer: Mali

Burkina Faso has its capital at Ouagadougou. It was previously known as Upper Volta, and changed to its current name in 1984. The new name derives from two local languages, and means 'upright' and 'fatherland', anglicised to 'land of the honest men'. It is not a wealthy country, with many of its 20 million inhabitants involved in subsistence farming. Its health and education standards are also rather lacking, and the political situation is often unstable. The Niger River bypasses this country altogether, running just east of its eastern boundary before turning sharply to the west in Mali. Burkino Faso's main river system is the Volta which has a red, black and white branch which drain into a single river before reaching the Atlantic.. It is about three times the area, with a similar population. Much of its northern areas are covered by the Sahara Desert. None of the incorrect options border Burkina Faso. This question was submitted by ozzz2002, who thinks 'Ouagadougou' is just fun to say!

From Quiz A Geographical Jaunt Across Africa

Answer: Lake Assal

After the Dead Sea, Lake Assal in Djibouti is the second lowest point on earth, at 155 meters below sea level. The lake is a saline lake with its salinity being ten times more than the sea. Because of the high salt content of the lake, ancient caravan routes were established from here, making it an important source of income for Djibouti. Lake Victoria's surface elevation is 1134 meters, whilst Lake Mweru's is 917 meters and Lake Tanganyika's surface elevation is 773 meters.

23. Every country has a lowest point. Which country has the world's highest lowest point?

From Quiz Think You Know Africa?

Answer: Lesotho

Lesotho, a small nation surrounded entirely by South Africa, is raised incredibly high. There is not a point in the country that dips below one thousand meters of elevation. The world's highest lowest point is located where the Orange and the Makhaleng rivers meets. The Earth's lowest highest point, however, is in the Maldives.

24. The city of Timbuktu is located in which African country?

From Quiz The Geography of Africa

Answer: Mali

In past centuries Timbuktu was an important center for trade and for Islamic scholarship. In April of 2012 Islamist rebels captured the town from the Mali government, and it was not retaken until January of 2013, when the Mali government captured the town with the help of French forces.

25. What is the deepest lake in Africa (and the second deepest lake in the world)?

From Quiz My Home, Africa

The Zambezi River forms the border between Zimbabwe and its northern neighbour, Zambia, and on it are Lake Kariba and the Victoria Falls. The Falls is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world but by the end of the rainy season in April the amount of water flowing over it increases enough to form the world's largest waterfall by volume.

27. The Cape of Good Hope juts from this country, a landmark that has shown captains for centuries that they were "turning the corner" in sailing around Africa. What gold and diamond rich nation is this?

From Quiz African Lands

Answer: South Africa

Europeans began colonizing what is now South Africa in 1652, when the Dutch East India Company founded Cape Colony on the Cape of Good Hope. The British seized the Cape in 1795, leading to a conflict between the British and Dutch that would last over a century and would see a great deal of immigration from Europe and South Asia. South Africa became an autonomous dominion of the British Empire in 1910 and became fully independent in 1961, but its democracy was held back by the policy of Apartheid, which legally discriminated against the country's Black majority. This policy eased dramatically after 1990, and South Africa elected its first black president, Nelson Mandela, in 1994.
