Yh good idea - learn something about Africa, like where rivers flow through which countries... learn a part of the continent at a time - North Africa, West Africa etc. I have visited many times, but could not fill out the map, so decided to learn it tonight. Kept doing it over and over and now finally have it with time to spare. Feeling well chuffed!

Any geographical information can help. If you look at the map and see a bunch of shapes and unfamiliar names, it's going to be tough to keep them all separate. If you look and see familiar and interesting places it becomes easy. For example, know that Morocco was the Barbary coast where pirates raided Atlantic shipping, where the Moors crossed over to Europe to conquer Iberia, and it's placement on the map makes sense. Recall that Tunisia is home to Carthage, a city with close ties to Rome, and it's position near Italy makes sense. For Egypt think of it's shared history with the Levant, the Sinai, the Suez canal, etc and it's obvious. Recall that Eritrea used to be the coast of Ethiopia, and that Djibouti is basically a Somali city-state, that Somalia raids shipping around the horn of Africa, that Malawi is on Lake Malawi, etc etc etc. When every place has a story and character then it becomes easy.

Ok. Step one. Do the countries of the world quiz that is on this site, then slowly memorise them. That's what I did. Also doing it with Google maps is a help. Sorry this is a cheat's way but it is successful and I doubt all of you did this without some help from trusty google

Guys. Why do you keep posting how fast you did it? No one cares whether you did it it 1 second or 3 minutes. What matters is if you got all of it correct or not. Also, wtf does age have to do with it? You could be 7 and interested in geography or 56 and not give two fucks. And seriously, wtf guys, stop saying "I got it all right and I'm American!" If you are saying that, you clearly do not believe in your own people or country. Not to mention it's just as difficult to get this quiz right if you are Chinese or Brazilian. Africans could have an advantage doe. So stop posting time left and instead post scores. Rant over

I am an Egyptian and honestly before taking this quiz, I had no idea about the location of most of the Countries. I knew just like the Arab countries and few scattered countries here and there. Of course South Africa is so easy. I know Asia better than Africa may be because we are closer to the Gulf... But, anyway thanks to this quiz now I know my continent.
