This is an incomplete list of African supercentenarians (people from Africa who have attained the age of at least 110 years). One source of lifespans is the Gerontology Research Group (GRG) who, as of 19 September 2020, have verified 3 supercentenarians from Africa.[1] Africa is a region that, 110+ years ago, had relatively few areas with birth records. Yet, records existed in places such as Algeria, South Africa, Cape Verde, and the French Indian Ocean islands.

The oldest verified African ever was Adelina Domingues, born in Cape Verde in 1888 and dying in the USA in 2002, age 114 years, 183 days. Among those who died in Africa, French woman Maria Diaz, who died at the age of 113 years, 249 days on the French island of Reunion. There are currently no verified living supercentenarians in Africa, but there are a few who were born in Africa and then emigrated to another continent.
