10 Countries with Most Beautiful Women in Africa


Editor’s note: Wilberforce Mukhwana, a self-declared globetrotter from Kenya, writes about what he regards as ten countries with the most beautiful women in Africa.

The debate about the African country with the most beautiful women has been with us for some time now.

Some say Ethiopia has the most beautiful women on the continent. Some say South Africa, and some even claim Eritrea.

But today, I would like to discuss and possibly put this matter to rest.

Well, you may ask, what are your qualifications to think you can competently rank women from these countries on matters of beauty?

Well, let me confess here that my only competency is that I have lived in different parts of Africa for some time now.

Therefore, my reasons are inclined towards solid logic as opposed to emotional persuasion.

1. Ethiopian women

Ethiopian women are overqualified for this race, as everyone admits they are the most beautiful on the continent.

And this has nothing to do with their complexion; it is just their sheer beauty and the way they carry themselves with grace. They also love their culture and are not loud either.

If you have ever boarded the Ethiopian Airlines and came across those air hostesses, then you will understand what I’m taking about.

Suffice to say, Ethiopian women are beautiful, and it comes almost effortlessly to them.

That being said, I have a job to do, as I promised to bring this matter to a logical conclusion.

In that case, let’s compare women from eight other African nations. We’re doing these nine for the simple reason that they are the most well-known countries in Africa.

Nigeria and South Africa are Africa’s economic giants. Kenya has breathtaking infrastructure and is also a leader in technology in Africa.

For some reason, someone somewhere has always remembered Ghana for its illustrious democracy and peace.

But which of the nine countries has the most beautiful women?

2. South African women

To be fair, South Africa leads in this category. And in my analysis, it leads the other three by a huge margin.

Whether you like the nyash and all, the South African babes have it. The Anathi and Ayandas of South Africa are very beautiful and endowed.

Plus, have you seen those Zulu dances where the girls exhibit power and exuberance? What’s more, the Mzansi girls would never speak a full sentence without incorporating words from Zulu, Isikhosa, and other indigenous languages.


Isn’t that already attractive?

3. Nigerian women

Now that South Africa is at the top of the list, we move on to the second position, which is occupied by Nigeria.

Nigerian women are as authentic as they come.

One thing with Nigerian women is that you’ll rarely come across one trying to imitate a fake foreign accent.

Even after years of staying in the US, you’ll still hear “my sisto” whenever she speaks. What’s more, she could be a Ph.D. holder, but she’ll still prepare fufu and egusi soup for her family.

What’s more, she will walk, talk, and even gossip like a typical Nigerian woman. In other words, she does not seek validation by imitating exotic  mannerisms.

Nigerian women rock for this reason. Their only weakness has been that they have not made themselves available in the East African region.

We all agree that we are backing a united Africa, and one of the ways to expedite this is by enhancing family ties across Africa.

4. Ghanaian women

Ghanaian women are rather chilled. They are also beautiful, with the nyash to match.

I have seen hundreds of my Kenyan friends troop to the Instagram handle of Ama Serwaa Dufie, pleading with her to arrest them. Pwahahaha!

Anyway, Ghanaian women generally fare well, as they try their best to maintain authenticity. While they may not reach Nigerian women’s standards, they don’t pander to foreign accents.

They also love their foods, and they are quite respectful.

5. Kenyan women

Let’s first admit that being on the top five list is by itself no small feat.

So congratulations, Kenyan women! And what’s more, Kenyan ladies have a lot of potential, but their major problem is copying mzungu ways and being too westernized.

There is nothing more annoying than the fake American accents of the majority of Kenyan women who have gone beyond class 8.

Apart from fake American and British accents, a typical Kenyan lady forgets Kiswahili and their native language as soon as they acquire some status and money.

It gets more annoying when such women invite you to their homes because you’ll be served with such exotic dishes that you’ll think you are in Portsmouth or Kentucky.

If you get into a conversation with them, they’ll then go ahead and regurgitate elite jokes without taking into consideration that such jokes are, in most cases, intended for native English speakers.

Even with her unrivalled beauty, education, ‘refinement’ and all, you instantly get put off as you wish they’d utter more relatable stuff like Chinua Achebe’s saying, “As long as the bed shakes regularly, the home is at peace.”

6. Tanzania

Tanzania boasts some of the most stunning women in Africa, if not the world. Similar to their counterparts in Uganda, they are renowned for being courteous.

Tanzanian women tend to be curvaceous, loyal to their spouses and hardworking.

7. Uganda

Curvaceous Ugandan women command a regiment of ebony beauties. Ugandan babes are also loyal to their husbands.

8. Eswatini

It’s undeniable that most men have, on several occasions, considered packing their bags to travel to Eswatini to witness the reed dance.

Have you observed the alluring beauty of the maidens during the reed dance?

9. South Sudan

The women of South Sudan are some of the most beautiful on the continent. They are towering, and their skin is brimming with melanin.

The fact that South Sudanese models have continued to dominate international arenas for a while is no coincidence.

10. Rwanda

Rwandan women are, without a doubt, among the most gorgeous women in Africa. They are among the most eligible bachelorettes throughout Africa because they are feminine, loyal, and hardworking.
