The BRM Land Africa is a Portuguese ultralight aircraft, designed and produced by BRM Costruções Aeronáuticas. The aircraft is supplied as a kit for amateur construction or as a complete ready-to-fly-aircraft.
Chris Heintz, the designer of the Zenith STOL CH 701 considers the Land Africa an unauthorized copy of the CH 701. The Land Africa varies from CH 701 in having a wider and longer cockpit.

The aircraft was designed to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight rules. It features a strut-braced high-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit, fixed tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.
The aircraft is made from aluminum sheet. Its 8.63 m (28.3 ft) span wing has an area of 18.08 m2 (194.6 sq ft) and features large flaps as well as leading edge slots. Standard engines available are the 80 hp (60 kW) Rotax 912UL and the 100 hp (75 kW) Rotax 912ULS four-stroke powerplants.
In 2009 a new faster wing option was introduced that increases the top speed by about 25 km/h (16 mph), while retaining the same low stall speed.
The Land Africa replaced the earlier BRM Okavango in production.
