In this tab we are including all the shipwrecks along the coasts of Africa. Like in other cases, some countries, such as South Africa, have coasts on different bodies of water, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. We have chosen to include the countries’ tables on both bodies of water, rather than divide them for presentation purposes only.
