Just out of curiosity... Couldn't the highest mountain in Africa also be called "Kibo"? I think Kilimanjaro means the whole massif

Dragon mountain didn't work :) According to Wikipedia articles, it's translated in Italian and Eastern European languages. For some reason Romanians call it Scorpion Mountains

Nice quiz, but it has 11 of the same answers as in the already featured Africa A-Z. I enjoy A-Z quizzes, but how about renaming this one Africa A-Z #2, and introducing some new questions and answers?

The epic coincidence! This one is geography and that one is Africa generally, so I guess it makes sense that there are some repeats. And for the later letters it's hard to come up with many answers at all!

"Ibo" is an acceptable alternate spelling of "Igbo" (check out the Wikipedia disambiguation page for "Ibo").

Could you accept "Bedouin" for B? Tried typing it in more than once. Also, some people may get A by looking at O. Maybe change formatting to avoid the O clue near the A clue? Or rewording either one would work too

Berber is the main ethnic group. Also, everyone should be getting 'A' anyway.
