The African Tribute is a memorial to the African troops in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania that fought against the East Africa German Army during the British Campaign's first World War. It was revealed in 1927. The monument is located on Samora Avenue in the center of the roundabout, at the junction of Azikiwe Street and Maktaba Street, and is also a symbol of Dar es Salaam's city center.

This statue also appears near the location of the Askari Monument, especially to that of Major Hermann Wissmann German explorer and military, the East Africa German Governor in the late 19th century. Wissmann stood on his hip, one side on its sword, peering over the port in this prior statue which was revealed in 1911, and on his feet stood an African soldier with a slaughtered lion, covered by a German flag. When the British entered Dar es Salaam in 1916 they demolished this statue, together with Otto von Bismarck and Karl Peters.
