It's interesting, but some countries are missing like Cape Verde and São Tome and Principe. How's that possible?

Too small, geographically, to be resolved on a map of t hat scale.

On my first try:

98% in 1:48:1

I mixed up Guinea and Guinea-Bissau. I got lucky and didn't mix up Benin and Togo which are nearly identical

Only 48%. Weird, I know almost every country in the world with the small exception of a couple countries near the Balkan Peninsula that I mix up.

I'm calling BS on some of these 85%+ "first try results" under 2 mins........unless you majored in African Geography!

I got a know a few (Somalia, Egypt, Madagascar) but the rest I wouldn't know which side of the continent to begin on!

I doubt it. I could in Geography class back in the early 80's, but so many of them have changed names since I wouldn't have a clue anymore.

Some people are just more well versed in geography than others.

The only tricky ones are Guinea-Bissau/Guinea, Sierra Leone/Liberia, Togo/Benin, Rwanda/Burundi and Lesotho/Swaziland.
