This year marks the 10th anniversary of the World Happiness Report, which uses global survey data to report how people evaluate their own lives in more than 150 countries worldwide.


The ranking considers a range of economic, social, and environmental factors, and offers insights into what makes a country a great place to live.

Life evaluations from 2020 to 2022 have been “remarkably resilient,” the report says, with global averages basically in line with the three years preceding the pandemic.

According to the survey, these are Africa’s top 10 happiest countries in 2022.

MAURITIUS. Mauritius is the happiest and most developed country on the African continent. It is the only African country with a high human development index and according to the Global Peace Index, the most peaceful African country.
