AFRICA TIME ZONES

Africa uses six time zones and thirteen standard time zone names to describe them. Africa time zone offsets range from UTC/GMT -1 to UTC/GMT + 4. From west to east the time zones in Africa are:

(UTC/GMT -1) Cape Verde Time Zone. (UTC/GMT +0) Greenwich Mean Time Zone, Western European Time Zone and Western Sahara Time Zone. (UTC/GMT +1) Central European Time Zone and West Africa Time Zone. (UTC/GMT +2 ) Central Africa Time Zone, Eastern European Time Zone, and South Africa Time Zone. (UTC/GMT +3) East Africa Time Zone. (UTC/GMT +4) Mauritius Time Zone, Reunion Time Zone and Seychelles Time Zone.

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is not used in most of Africa. However, the countries of Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Namibia, and Western Sahara do observe Daylight Saving Time. Tunisia ended the use of daylight saving time in 2009. The names in each time zone change during daylight saving time. View Africa Time Zone abbreviations for more details.

In 2013 Libya delayed the end of Daylight Saving Time. Currently Libya is observing daylight saving time year round.
