White Saffa here. Quick rundown:
South Africa: Diverse landscapes, most developed country, crime happens to locals and idiots, baby's first african country
Namibia: Sand and sock, large stretches of nothing, dirt roads that will kill your car, dusty, nice camping spots
Botswana: Great wildlife, has the touristy thing that Kenya has, roads also suck
Zimbabwe: Half great wildlife, the other half an even poorer south africa
Mozambique: Zimbabwe but with a tropical setting~
Swaziland: Mountains
Lesotho: Mountains, but with snow!
>>
>>1827378
Malawi: Tough to get around, but kind people, nice landscape and overall a good experience. Generally safe during daylight. Would recommend.

Pretty easy actually, as long as you take a route near the eastern coast.

If you attempt to go through CAR, South sudan or Darfur then you may end your trip in a shallow grave
>>
>>1827378
Malawi is cool
Zimbabwe and Zsmbia are cool.
Namibia is boring.
Botswana has great wildlife tours and stuff
Lesotho is good for hiking and escaping
Swaziland has a cool wildlife preserve that you can live on or used to.
I personally think Malawi is the best.

Troll. There are lots of cool places in Africa, Malawi is firmly at the bottom unless you're some sort of Christfag trying to spread your religion. There's literally nothing there. People talk about how dangerous and hard travel in Congo can be, but Congo still has some great experiences if you can deal with the hardship. Malawi as a destination is utterly pointless.

Why not just go to the usa or france? (Not being racist or trolling you)

Sub saharan Africa has a very traditional mindset, people marry quite early in most countries. Sexual liberation there is only just beginning, and only in the very big cities. The most well educated africans tend to move to europe, their destination in europe is mostly decided by their colonial history (nigerians go to the uk, malians go to france etc)

Why not go for better educated, more westernised (aka more likely to agree to sex outside of a relationship) women.
I get the whole exotic part of it, but in countries like Ethiopia where the women are hot, HIV is a MASSIVE problem, the problem gets bigger the more south you go. Ranging from 1/6 of women to 1/3 in women. At that point just play russian roullete. I have people in my social circles who have contracted hiv in africa, and i can tell you its not a fun thing to have even with meds.

Do what you will with my post man, god speed whatever you decide to do

Rwanda is a really nice and chill place. Safe for tourists from any country. Criminal activity is very low and white guy can walk around any big city during midnight and don't be scared for his life.
Kigali isn't cheap but you can find pretty much anything there from any sort of restaurant to casino or nightclub.
There are a couple of safari parks but those aren't impressive compared to ones in Kenya or Tanzania. But if you have decent amount of money, you can visit gorillas high in the mountains.
I'd give Rwanda 9/10 if you want to rate countries in Central Africa.

During my year and a half in Rwanda, I haven't noticed any aggression or disgust towards whites. Some locals do consider them as walking wallets full of money though. So foreigners should be careful while doing business with them, it's easy to be fooled by some tricky motherfucker because you do not know how things work in there.
Otherwise, locals are pretty chill and friendly, even in distant regions of the country.
>>

Go to haiti, nice weather

>>1834811
I would like to do business there. Thanks for the info broseph. Think I'll go there for tourism first. Any place you'd recommend in particular.?
>>
>>1834852
Honestly, there aren't many interesting places to visit there for tourists.
Like I said, there are a couple of national parks, Akagera is a good example. But those aren't really special unless you're really into typical african wildlife because you can't find those anywhere else in Rwanda at all.
Gorillas park is a special thing because they are considered as national treasure there and it costs around $1500 per person to visit them. If you have spare money, go for it. people say it's worth it but not my kind of thing.
There are also some good resorts near lake Kivu. Those are pretty popular among tourists and wealthy locals.
Also, I'd highly recommend to find someone in Rwanda to assist if you really want to start business there. Locals know all the tricks and are extremely useful to make some things less complicated. Good luck anyway.

>Not in Rwanda but coffee prices are shit right now
completely the opposite on my end

I'm in Brazil and exporting most of my stuff, price hike has been absurd, specially with the US dollar being so strong. I'm talking about specialty coffee though, not commodity level coffee ("traditional" coffee). Europeans too have been asking for more and more of our coffee I even had to hire a trainee to start roasting with me. Consumption of coffee (and alcohol) has increased a lot since the lockdowns it seems.

As far as I know coffee market is filled with local companies.
Can't really tell if there is any place for foreign operators left. But at least customs fees are reasonable in Rwanda compared to DRC or Tanzania.
Coffee is one of the few things Rwanda produces so it can be tricky to get into this business. Not impossible but like I previously said local help would increase the chances of success.

I want more info on being a white expat in Cabo Verde, Angola, Mozambique, São Tomé etc.

It's relatively safe unless you have endless desire for travelling outside of big cities during night hours. And even in big cities such hours aren't really safe outside of your hotel room.
Can easily get robbed and that's not a pleasant experience to be honest.

>>1836845
If a job is offering a guard at home... Then is very dangerous right? In the rural area.

Not really then. Overall, Tanzania is an alright place to live and work. Can't compare to complete shitholes like DRC. Still it's not completely safe like Rwanda or Burundi so you should keep an eye on things around.

He's right in that the cities generally don't have much to offer - or take some time to get to know well enough to discover the fun stuff - and there's no-go zones due to local insurgents, but most of it is sufficiently safe and there's plenty to discover that isn't wildlife.

Nice. Where'd you visit? Have any favorites?
>>
>>1838155
Kenia, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast and Ghana. Favourite was probably Ethiopia for its diversity. Montagnes region in Ivory Coast had some pretty cool scenery as well - by extension the mountains around Mt Nimba are all quite nice. Ghana had some nice beaches. Wildlife was best in Tanzania, even if Ethiopia had some cool endemic critters as well.

Are there *any* good cities in Sub-Saharan Africa?
I can't really think of any off the top of my head.

South Africa seems to be the only country with any semblance of decent cities -- Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria, and Durban (guessing about all of those) -- but even still, the crime rates in South Africa are unsettling, to say the least.

Too big a topic and too vague a question. So I will narrow it down for you. The cape province have lots of tiny villages and towns that are very gentrified. Pic related is Franschoek.All of these places have wineyards, fancy restaurants, excellent produce, colonial architecture, and some places have all this + coastline. Reasonably cheap living too (meaning, luxury is less here than in Europe or the US). Check out the Garden Route on Google.
