You may query the AFRINIC Whois database as below:

To Start go to:

  1. Click on the "Query" tab
  2. Type in the IP prefix which you want to check.(e.g.
  3. Check the "I'm not a robot" for the human check
  4. Under "Object Types", select "route".
  5. Click on the "Flags" tab.
  6. Select "B - Show full object details" & "r - Disable recursive search for contact information"

Note: We would advise you to use the "-r" & "-B" flags to disable recursion and the default filtering behaviour in order to display the entire object.


crt rt6 obj16


You should get the output below:

crt rt6 obj17


Note: Our Route Registry is currently mirrored by APNIC, RADB, RIPE and NTT Communications.  APNIC, RADB, and NTT Communications do near real time mirroring (NRTM), while RIPE picks up a daily dump around 22:00 UTC.
