I named every one that I could think of and got the same number. But I missed Luanda, Harare, Abidjan, and Kano and I knew all of those... just couldn't remember them.

A year and a half later... I got the same score again... and this time got Luanda and Kano, guessed Harare but I suppose they're not on the list anymore, and still missed Abidjan. Feel most dumb about missing Dakar and Bamako on this go round...

This year got all of them except for Ibadan, which I've never heard of before and appear to be new on the list. Tunis, Douala, and Bamako are all off the top 20 I guess.

I know all the countries...that's about it for me. I've tried taking the capitals quiz and the only one that I remember that I didn't know before is Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso and that's only because it sounds so awesome.

I always remember Ouagadougou because I spent some time there a while back. The ancient capital's name is almost as good: Bobo-Dioulasso. There's also Koudougou, Moussodougou, Doulougou... incredibly beautiful and safe country. I got 21 but I think 100% is achievable next time; I had them all in the back of my brain somewhere, just didn't realize that Pretoria is so big!

Burkina Faso does not sound awesome it sounds like a Namibian or Tanzanian saying a weird thing.

I'm actually surprised about how high the guess-percentages are. But then again, why would someone who doesn't know anything about Africa take this quiz. It gives a good overview of the capitals of the medium and large African countries.

I know little about Africa, but before taking quizzes on this site I would have known even less. That's why someone who doesn't know anything about Africa takes the quiz. Next time (hopefully) I'll know more.

Yes, I would also like to know this. I put Dar and it wasn't accepted, so I assumed it was a wrong answer. Can Dar be accepted as in many other quizzes?

Bamako probably should be on the list now. It's being listed as 3.25 now.
