Nigeria:
Lagos - Uber works fine in Lagos, biggest issues is making sure that you have data/coverage on your network (there's a reason that all the locals carry three phones!)
Abuja - Taxify works better

South Africa:
JNB, CT, DUR - Uber is straightforward and inexpensive

Ghana
Accra - Uber is available but somewhat patchy, both in terms of availability and quality when they do turn up (as of May 18)

Kenya
Works great in Nairobi and Mombasa. Not yet available in Nakuru, Eldoret, or Kisumu.

Uganda
Works great in Entebbe and Kampala. But many times in Kampala if you are using a credit card, the driver will cancel your ride within 5 minutes.

Tanzania
Works is Dar-es-salaam
