As for West Africa, Islam was already present in the savanna regions since medieval times, but the 19th century saw further Islamic expansion and state formation (as seen in the Fulani jihads), and without Europeans we would probably see Islamic states reach the Gulf of Guinea.
Yet they still did not reach the gulf of Guinea, even with a century to do so.

Also, Egypt did (attempt to) invade Ethiopia but lost.
