Problems facing transport and communication in Africa include;

  • Africa has difficult terrain which makes it difficult to develop transport and communication facilities e.g. great rift valley
  • The African continent has extensive regions with harsh environment e.g. deserts like Sahara, thick tropical forest like Congo. These areas have low population hence no significant economic activity to encourage establishment of transport and communication
  • Most rivers in Africa are non-navigable because of fluctuation of water levels, numerous rock outcrop, rugged terrain
  • Inadequate communication facilities e.g. limited development of telephone network
  • Civil wars – leads to destruction
