It depends on what country/area in Africa your talking about, some parts aren't that bad while others places in Africa like The Horn are some of the worst places around.
But one thing is for sure if you visit central Africa get your shots, there are a lot of diseases that can make you violently ill or kill you, especially if you get lost or are in an area without adequate medical care.
Places like Somalia are riddled with pirates and crime
central Africa has a lot of sickness and disease like stated above
The Horn and the countries that are part of it is a really dangerous place to visit, drug trading, sickness, poverty, starvation, terrorism, crime, warlords/militias make up this area. Easily the most unstable part of Africa.
To name a few places.
Northern Africa is alright
Madagascar is a pretty cool place lot of unique wildlife and plant life etc
African safari is another cool place to visit
South Africa is pretty decent.
But like I said it just depends on where you are there, some places are like war zones, other places are riddled with crime and danger, other places starvation and are 3rd world countries and other places are very beautiful and unique with rich culture and really nice cities.
It just depends.1
