About Southern Africa

The UN subregion of Southern Africa consists of five countries in the southernmost part of the continent–Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe. The region is rich in valuable minerals deposits.

The island nation of Madagascar is excluded because of its distinct language and cultural heritage.

The heartland of Southern Africa is made up of a series of undulating plateaus that stretch over much of South Africa, Namibia, and Botswana and into central Angola. This is bordered by uplands in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Northern Mozambique, South Africa, Namibia, Angola, and the Mozambique-Zimbabwe border all include coastal mountains and escarpments surrounding the high terrain.

Mozambique’s coastal plains front the Indian Ocean, whereas Angola and Namibia’s border the Atlantic.
