See These Beautiful Images Of African Cities At Night

When most people hear of ‘Africa’, beautiful African cities at night are usually the last thing they think of especially people from the western world. What comes to their mind is mostly an imagination of a vast forest, barely clad dark-skinned people, wild animals, and huts. Well, who can blame them, it happens to be the stereotype which they have been exposed to by western media. Movies as well tend to depict Africa and Africans in a manner which screams of helplessness or people always in need of some sort of aid relief or the other.

Although we do love our safaris, and natural endowments, alongside everything that makes Africa enviable and unique, there are still a lot the mainstream media doesn’t show of the beloved continent which is a quite sad but recently, the advent and popularity of social media (especially in the hands of extraordinary, young and vibrant  Africans) has made it easier to show the better side of a downplayed continent.

No doubt, Africa still has a long way to go in terms of development; but one thing is for sure, Africa is definitely not where it used to be and this is evident in the glorious look of its cities at night.

So we’ve compiled images of African cities at night and they are absolutely lovely. Happy exploring!
