In Africa there is a Bitcoin Moroccan community and in south africa they have a annual summit "Blockchain Africa Conference" including bitcoin panel

Blockchain and bitcoin Africa conference 2016
During the two-day conference in Johannesburg, industry experts from around the world will share their views on as well as their experience of the opportunities and challenges facing digital currencies such as bitcoin and the blockchain technology as well as their impact on the current social, economic and political order. Several African countries will also be represented, such as Botswana, Kenya, Ghana and Zimbabwe.
A great deal of interest has been shown recently in blockchain technology by both financial and non-financial institutions alike. Some of the world’s largest banks are partnering with tech companies to explore how they can use this technology to potentially save billions of dollars and streamline their systems. Companies are investigating how they can use the technology to offer lower transactions fees for payments and remittances. The blockchain technology also offers numerous benefits in terms of transparency for companies and institutions are exploring how they can use this technology for voting, storing of information and executing smart contracts without the need of a third party. Some take-aways will be understanding and participating in the growth of bitcoin and blockchain eco system in Africa.

From the flow of traffic here you now know that Africa doesn't have that bitcoin community yet that can sustain the growth of bitcoin interest. Not just yet.

The most notable bitcoin communities in Africa are in Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, Kenya and Zimbabwe. There you can find startups and a relatively active bitcoin market. Having said that, they are still small scale compared to more established bitcoin economies.

The low internet penetration is the biggest hindrance for large scale bitcoin adoption in Africa in my view.
