The sport has come into a lot of criticism recently for the number of races that are so spread apart around the globe, racking up an excessive amount of air miles that counteracts F1's objective to be carbon neutral by 2030.
Sky Sports F1 commentator David Croft recently called it 'unsustainable' to keep adding races to the calendar year after year.
F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said in 2021 that there would be a race in Africa within the next five years, and Hamilton has said that he is making sure F1 sticks to that.
"Last year, I went there and traveled," he continued.
"I'm pushing very hard, I'm constantly calling to find out where this Grand Prix is going. I want to race there before I retire. I ran everywhere else. South Africa, like Johannesburg, would be great. Cape Town could be great."
