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 27 June 2017, have verified 3 supercentenarians from Africa. [1]

The oldest verified African ever was 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.
