The capital of Tanzania is Dodoma. Also, you should check your spelling for Bissau.

That's what it says on the quiz and that's what it says on the quiz. It's all correct. Also, great quiz.

Great quiz! Wish it was featured. One big concern though, Western Sahara is not part of Morocco.

Western Sahara isn't a country though, it's a territory and although i's capital is important it's irrelevant to this quiz.

It's a partially recognized country and a member of AU. It controls only a small part of its territory however. It's not a territory, Morocco has other divisions for that area.

Thanks for the quiz. This is the one helping me to nail the African capitals once and for all.

It would be useful to be able to zoom in, if possible?

You can. Click the capital that you want to zoom in on, then click the magnifying glass above the map.

A real challenge! I finished with 0:07 left, so just call me James Bond.

Agree, the scrolling uses up a lot of time. I got one wrong near the end through rushing.

I'm wondering why 87% got Pretoria but only 3% got the other two South African capitals. I didn't get Pretoria but did get the other two

I'm surprised too, I'd have thought that people would have realised Cape Town was on the coast. And even, even if they were guessing, half of people who know Pretoria would get Cape Town right?

This is because the stats didn't reset when the other two capitals were added in, not sure why.

That's what I was thinking, Cape Town was the only one of the three I was 100% confident on!

Before I started I thought I'll be screwed having to guess which dot is Cotonou and which one is Porto-Novo. It was a big relief you let us choose one dot to cover both!!!

Not being able to zoom is really a problem for Brazzaville and Kinshasa since the dots are basically on top of each other. If zooming in isn't possible then some other way of creating visual separation between the dots.

It would also be nice if the clickable country names could all show up on the screen without a scroll bar, though that's a minor complaint.

Otherwise, awesome quiz.

Malabo threw me, I had to skip over it and come back at the end. I didn't realize it was on an island. Great quiz.

Man, I finally did it. I learned the whole worlds countries, then after did flags.

I learned every capital in world except Africa but finally learned them, at least enough to pass the World Capitals test.

However, it is 1 thing to just name every capital, its another to point them on a map like this, as prior I just could name all 54 and had no clue which country go to.

To really master, I will do the test where I see capital name and write the country that goes with it, the kind where only 1 answer, not the quiz where just can name whatever and fills out.

Why isn’t the thumbnail for “African Capitals” a picture of an African capital?
