Wakanda is a real place?

The true is…. no sorry :(

When the Wakanda concept was created, the film crew did not want to stay only in West Africa and make it Nigerian and Ghanaian and forget that there was East Africa, Wakanda and an amalgamation of various nations, economies and cultures including Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, South Africa and Congo, however fanciful, Wakanda has a connection to reality.

From this mix of cultures, an afrocentric and futuristic Wakanda was created with a reminiscence of tribal colors we know, an afro-punk, not a specific futuristic place in Africa, something really unique.
