You need to specify your countries.

I, British Passport holder, have picked up visas at the following borders: SA, ZW, Z, BW, MW, TZ, & K. The only country that I know needs preclearnce is Ethiopia and possibly Moz.

I imagine it varies according to the nationality of your passport. As a South African passport holder, I have bought visas at the border or don't need a visa for most of southern and East Africa, with Angola and Ethiopia being the exceptions. The best thing to do is to contact your foreign affairs/state department and ask them.

With Swiss and UK Passport

For following countries I had to get the visas ahead: Djibouti, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia

Following countries I got the visa at the border: Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland.

An exeption was Malawi: If Swiss then u need to get visa ahead. If UK (and most of EU) then u don't need a visa.
