Africa by the Numbers

Sandy provides some trip statistics, as well as country information, for the three nations that we visited during our seven weeks in Africa.

This is a story for those of you who are “into the numbers”. We kept track of some statistics and fun measures during our travels in Africa:

Number of Days in Africa: 46
Number of Countries Visited: 3
Number of National Parks / Reserves Visited: 4
Miles Traveled by Boat: 222
Miles Traveled by Road: 1,789
Miles Traveled by Rail: 0
Miles Traveled by Air: 3,045
Miles Trekked: 70
Number of Schools Visited: 4
Average Daily Cost (for two, including visas): $269.94

The three countries we visited had a variety of nature, terrain, people and culture. To provide a little more in-depth look at each country, we have created a table listing:

  • Population (and world rank)
  • Area (and world rank)
  • Life Expectancy at Birth in Years (and world rank)
  • GDP Per Capita – PPP (and world rank)
  • Median Age in Years
  • Literacy Rate percentage
  • Access to Electricity (%) and Population without Electricity

Sources for each item are listed. Click the image below to view the detailed table.
