Do you want to visit a random country in Africa? This random African country Generator chooses a random destination anywhere in Africa.

My friend Lauri recently helped me program a random destination generator for all the countries in the world. As the main programming is done, it’s easy for me to use the same code for other generators.

This random destination picker gives you a random country in Africa. I also have personal experience of random travel destinations in Africa, as my own destination lottery sent me to to Kenya.

Random African Country Generator

This random African destination generator chooses between 52 sovereign states.  My list of African countries is taken from You can see the full list on their website.

Some African counties are not very safe at the moment, so click the “Pick a Country” button below at your own risk.

Good luck!

Your random destination in Africa is…


Special thanks for my friend Lauri K for helping me program these random country generators!

Other Destination Generators

Besides this random African country generator, I’ve created a bunch of other random destination pickers and other random generators. You can find all my randomizers on the page Random Generators.

Here are a few examples:

I’ve picked random destinations for many of my trips over the years. I’ve collected some of these stories on my blog post How to Choose a Random Destination?.

Ps. If you use this random African country picker to pick a random destination in Africa, I’d like to hear about it! You can share the country and your plans/experiences in the comments or contact me on Instagram (@arimotravels).

After nearly two years on the road, Africa was the last new continent of my 777-day trip around the world. At that point, I was running out of both time and money. Still, I had enough resources to travel through southern Africa on public transport before a shorter stop in Egypt.
