Africa is said to be the cradle of civilization.

The wealth of its natural resources is mind-blowing, but one would not readily recognize it given the level of poverty that prevails within the continent.

With 54 countries on the continent, significant growth has occurred over the years. 

Today, some of these countries have risen above their expected growth rate performance, while others can be seen struggling with their poor state of the economy.

Here are the top five wealthiest countries in Africa in terms of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

1. Nigeria – $480.482 billion

2. South Africa – $415.315 billion

3. Egypt – $396.328 billion

4. Algeria – $163.812 billion

5. Morocco – $126.035 billion
