Before all this, have you physically been with your gf within the past two years/time that you have been a couple? If you have not, you need to do that first or you will hit a dead end.

http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide

This is a checklist of all the things you need/will need including links to download the forms that you will send to Immigrations

All the while, gather all info that can serve as validation for you relationship. Copies of passport pages with stamps when you visited her, various photos that show the two of you together labeled on the back of when and where it was, text or email messages that you have both exchanged...

Definitely look at the guide. It is so helpful

Awesome. So then you are set to start filling out the forms and putting your visa petition packet together!

Not sure if you had seen this but you should check out the http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/89-africa-sub-saharan/ = Forum for Africa. You can post questions that others are able to answer according to your country.

Good luck on your journey
