This article ranks the tallest buildings on the African continent by height. Initially, only a small number of major financial and commercial centers boasted large skylines, such as Lagos, Johannesburg, Nairobi, Cairo, Cape Town, Durban, Harare and Abidjan. However, since the 2000s, skyscrapers have been constructed in many other African cities, including Maputo, Abuja, Addis Ababa, Dar es Salaam, Luanda and Port Louis.

Since 1973, the tallest skyscraper in Africa has been Johannesburg's Carlton Centre, which stands 223 metres (732 ft) tall. However, several taller buildings are under construction.

Tallest buildings[edit]

This list ranks African buildings that stand at least 100 m (328 ft) tall, based on standard height measurements by CTBUH. This includes spires and architectural details, but does not include antenna masts and minarets. Buildings over 150 m (492 ft) tall are highlighted.
