São Tomé and Princeipe have two islands. Cape Verde is the closest one to the mainland(Becides São Tomé and Principe). Seychelles rooks like the farthest from the mainland, and I usually guess on the other ones and get them right.👍🏻👍🏻

my own way is kind of funny: cape verde = close to morocco, sao tome = close to equator/equatorial guinea, comoros = close to madagascar, seychelles = farthest to everyone, and mauritus is the one that's not all of the above

The official short name of the Republic of The Gambia is The Gambia, not Gambia. Calling it Gambia is just wrong, fix it, please.

If anyone is wondering they chose to call it The Gambia, stead of just Gambia, because Gambia sound too similar to Zambia and they did not want people confusing them both.

Jan 16, 2020
I used to have trouble with them as well. My strategy was to remember that Sierra Leone is shaped kind of like a circle, Guinea-Bissau was the smallest of the four, Liberia is the southernmost and Guinea is the one that touched all of the others. The two countries that I get mixed up on Benin and Togo.

One tip for people who have trouble distinguishing countries that come in 'pairs' like Niger and Nigeria, Zambia and Zimbabwe, Eswatini and Lesotho.

Work them down alphabetically. E.g. the northernmost country of the pair is the one that would come first in the alphabet.

I also have trouble distinguishing between Angola and Namibia, and that rule works too there.

Have fun quizzing!
