Top 10 Safest Countries in Africa in 2024

Numbeo’s crime Index takes into account survey responses about the general perception of crime levels, survey responses from residents and visitors regarding their feelings of safety while walking during daylight and at night, survey about worries regarding mugging, robbery, car theft, physical attacks by strangers, harassment in public places, and discrimination based on factors like skin color, ethnicity, gender, or religion, assessment of the extent of property-related crimes, such as burglary, theft, vandalism, etc. and evaluation of the perception of violent crimes, including assault, homicide, sexual offenses, etc.

Beyond the direct benefits to citizens, low crime rates in African nations have more nuanced advantages. For starters, they provide the groundwork for long-term growth by drawing in foreign investors and skilled professionals. Having an identity that guarantees safety contributes to the continent’s ongoing journey toward prosperity and global recognition.

Several African nations have made commendable efforts to dispel harmful stereotypes and promote stability and safety, via the extermination of crime. This positive change not only improves the standard of living for locals, but also makes these countries more appealing to visitors, investors, and international experts.

This point was highlighted in Numbeo’s current crime index and safety ranking. According to Numbeo, one of the world’s most profound data and research platforms, countries like Rwanda, and Ghana are amongst the safest in the world, having a relatively low crime index and high safety index.

Below are 10 of Africa’s safest countries.
