hottest african countries

Africa is the second largest continent (after Asia ), covering about one-fifth of the total land surface of Earth. The continent is bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean, on the north by the Mediterranean Sea, on the east by the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, and on the south by the mingling waters of the Atlantic and Indian oceans.

Africa is one the hottest continents on the planet. It should be known that the hottest country often changes from year to year. Which is due to weather and climate variation. Actually, the only continent that never freezes is Africa, no wonder we complain it never snows over here. Well, below are the top 10 hottest countries in Africa;

1. Ethiopia

This particular country is known as the hottest country in Africa. The town of Dallol holds the record for having the average annual temperature. In dallol, it is recorded that there is never a breakdown heat anywhere in that place.

The place dallol is now a ghost town, due to the vast amount of heat that place is producing. Back in the year 1960, the place was known as a mining settlement. The place is a volcanically active region, so the heat actually comes from a different direction.

2. Botswana

Botswana is the second among the hottest countries in Africa, for the most part of the year. The climate in Botswana is said to be semi-arid. Summer days are hot in the country especially in the weeks that precede the coming of the cooling vanes. Because of this, the shade temperature rises to 38 degree Celsius and then reaches a blistering 44 degree Celsius on rare occasion. It should be known that from November to march the weather is very hot over there as there is plenty of sunshine. Lots of facts and so many research has been done to be able to place Botswana in this position.

4. Somalia

This is a country that is known to see little rain all year long. The average temperature in Somalia is about 50 degrees and the place has been ravaged by drought and famine. The people of Somalia are in total starvation because they find it hard to grow food in their soils lack of irrigation is also another cause of starvation and drought and famine.

5. Sudan

This country is known as one of the hottest in North Africa. Sudan has dry desert land with an average temperature of 50 degree Celsius. The major problem a country has is desertification which is due to over rising of temperatures. The city wadi halfa in Sudan is one of the hottest city there, the city has to endure lots of terrible dust and storms. Famine has hit Sudan which now makes the availability of food in the country to be scarce. Sudan also receives no rainfall at all.

6. Algeria
