    Mhmmmm what about Western Sahara and Mauritania – there is also a landmined “Nomans Land” area in between those borders.

      Well, it’s a direct case of one country occupying another, basically splitting Western Sahara into two parts. Most of the world also never recognized Morocco’s unilateral annexation of Western Sahara. There clearly is a dispute here but I decided not to include it because the nature of the problem isn’t as complex as the other borders on this list.

    It’s very interesting read. I knew almost nothing about this topic. I guess it’s not easy for the countries to live in artificial borders. Unclaimed peace of land sounds quite special as well. Thanks for sharing and happy travels!

    This place is so central in Africa. I would guessed that this is the most authentic experience someone could do 🙂 Thanks for sharing your adventure

    Amazing post! Thanks for putting this list together. I was right on the other side of the river from the Caprivi Strip last year. We crossed from Zambia into Botswana and thought that it should be easily possible to cross into Namibia without anyone noticing us.

    What an interesting list! Didn’t know that Egypt and Sudan’s border is unclaimed land! Have you visited the Caprivi Strip? Would be really intriguing to explore their culture.

      Yes, Halai’b is unofficially the only unclaimed piece of land on our Earth, together with a part of the Antarctic. As for the culture and the indigenous people in the Caprivi Strip- they are both ethnically and culturally different than the rest of Namibia. However, that wasn’t an obstacle to divide the country in this way during the Colonial Era.

      Thank you for your comment, Christopher. It’s indeed sad when someone else is creating another country’s borders…

    This is a unique topic to cover! Have you crossed any/all of these in person?!

      As for the ones in Africa, not yet. I did cross some from the ones mentioned in the Americas, Europe, and Asia but none of the African ones yet. Hopefully, someday 🙂

    This is actually an interesting topic to write about, and I haven’t heard about all these borders since I haven’t to a lot of countries yet. You elucidated the topic very well. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    These are indeed some very interesting borders and another fascinating article. Are they also heavily guarded like those American borders?

      Well, I wouldn’t say that the American borders from the previous article are heavily guarded. The US/Canada and Argentina/Chile are two of the top three longest borders in the world and it’s really hard to completely guard them at all times. And, if you’re referring to the US/Mexico border, no I don’t think these are as heavily guarded 🙂
