Bongo Bongo Land is a fictional place somewhere in Africa. According to the country's government website a crazy lunatic from Middlesex.[1] According to said lunatic, Bongo Bongo Land is located in Kenya and is "a small landlocked country in Eastern Africa".[2]

Anyone who mentions Bongo Bongo Land is definitely, certainly and unequivocally a xenophobic racist. They will try to convince the few people who have any interest in them that they aren't racist and that vaguely labelling a whole continent as uncivilized, backward and tribal people is somehow acceptable.

The BBC found that in Tanzania (a real place in Africa) the term "Bongoland" is actually a compliment. You have to be a young native Tanzanian for this to count.[3]
