When it comes to choosing a destination for their next vacation, cleanliness is usually one of the most important criteria for travelers. When it comes to advancement and development, Africa is the ideal continent.
Many African cities have taken significant steps to provide their inhabitants with a beautiful and clean environment. The top ten cleanest cities in Africa are shown below.
Kigali is Rwanda's capital and largest city. If you read Rwanda's recent history, you'll be astounded at the rapid transition the country and its capital, Kigali, have undergone.
Kigali is Africa's cleanest metropolis for good cause. Residents are united in their desire to maintain their city clean. If you walk for hours through Kigali's streets, checking every corner, you won't discover a single bit of trash (unless a visitor was passing by before you!)
2.Port Louis, Mauritius.
Mauritius' capital, Port Louis, is a beautiful city that the people of Mauritius are proud of. Port Louis' city council works tirelessly to keep the city clean and sanitary. In terms of air quality, the city only competes with Scandinavian cities because the Port Louis council's threshold is very high in comparison to most other cities across the world. Port Louis is Africa's second cleanest city.
3.Cape Town, South Africa.
Cape Town, a beautiful South African city, has earned numerous international travel awards for its stunning natural beauty and welcoming people. The city of Cape Town maintains a Solid Waste Management Department whose goal is to keep streets and public places clean.
As a result, the beaches of Cape Town are among the cleanest in the world. Cape Town is a must-see for everyone interested in seeing Africa at its best. Cape Town is Africa's third cleanest city.
Tunis is one of the cleanest cities in North Africa, if not all of Africa. The city council is in charge of street cleaning, but it doesn't stop there!
Tunisians are constantly pushed to use sustainable energy sources such as solar energy, wind energy, biofuels, and other alternatives. Bicycles and electric vehicles are also becoming more popular, bringing Tunis closer to becoming a green city every day!
Windhoek is the only place in Africa where people can speak German, thanks to its architecture and street names inspired by Germany.
Aside from all of the German beer and sausages on every corner, Windhoek's municipality is constantly involving local communities in solid waste management in order to keep the city clean. This city is reported to be clean, safe, and convenient to navigate.
6.Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Dar es Salaam is the capital of Tanzania and one of the cleanest cities on the African continent. This city is located next to the Indian Ocean, making it highly attractive and charming! You simply do not want to leave this city once you have seen it.
Currently, trees and shrubs cover half of the city and adjacent areas, absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing significant amounts of oxygen into the sky. The cleaning of reservoirs is also given a lot of attention.
Africa's most democratic country also has one of the cleanest cities in the continent. Gaborone has a strong economy, as well as a wise municipality that is continually informing inhabitants about how to recycle, compost, and reuse. If you visit Gaborone, you will be pleasantly impressed by its big green parks and immaculately clean streets.

To keep the weather nice, the municipality of Algiers is constantly coming up with new solutions for decreasing the usage of personal automobiles.
Nairobi is known as the "Green City in the Sun" because of its hills, valleys, and large green parks. When compared to similar cities of similar size, the majority of Nairobi residents walk, take public transportation, or ride their bikes to work, resulting in considerable reductions in carbon (II) oxide emissions. Nairobi residents are also big on composting and recycling their trash.
Gabon's capital, Libreville, is located on the Atlantic coast. Libreville's city hall has come up with a few inventive ways to keep the city's air clean, such as significantly raising car parking fees, forcing citizens to rely more on public transportation.
In addition, despite the presence of numerous enterprises in the Libreville area, necessary steps have been taken to ensure that the environment is not harmed. Other notable aspects of the capital include a variety of green packs, tree plantations, and cycling tracks.
