India's largest hospital and pharmacy chain Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd is planning to set up hospitals in African countries, Chairman Prathap Reddy said on Wednesday.

"We are looking at Ghana. We are looking at Tanzania seriously. Angola is another one at which our team is looking at. So overall we are looking at four to five places in Africa," Reddy told reporters on the sidelines of an industry conference.

All these projects will be greenfield projects and will be majority-owned by Apollo, he added.
