According to wholevehicles, Mozambique is located in southeastern Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean to the east, South Africa to the south, Zimbabwe to the west, and Zambia and Malawi to the northwest. The country covers an area of 799,380 sq km (308,642 sq mi). It is divided into three topographical regions: a narrow coastal plain along the Indian Ocean which rises abruptly to a plateau region farther inland; and in the far north and northwest lie mountains. Inland areas of Mozambique are mostly rolling hills with some scattered mountains. The Zambezi River forms most of Mozambique’s northern border with Zambia and Malawi. The Limpopo River forms much of its southern border with South Africa. Lake Chiuta is located in central Mozambique near Malawi while Lake Cahora Bassa lies on its western border with Zimbabwe. Other major rivers include Save River, Buzi River, Pungoe River and Incomati River. Mozambique has a tropical climate with two distinct seasons: wet season from October through March; dry season from April through September. The average annual rainfall ranges from 500 mm (19 inches) in some areas to 2000 mm (79 inches) in others. Most of the country receives less than 1000mm (39 inches) per year however due to its location on the eastern coast of Africa it experiences occasional cyclones during wet season which can cause flooding. Temperatures range from 18°C (64°F) in winter to 24°C (75°F) during summer months. Mozambique’s flora is diverse due to its varied topography and climate zones featuring tropical rainforests along its coastlines as well as deciduous forests further inland; grasslands are found throughout much of its interior regions while mangrove swamps line many of its riverbanks. Its fauna includes numerous species of mammals such as antelopes, elephants, lions and rhinoceroses; birds such as flamingos, ibises and pelicans; reptiles like crocodiles and tortoises; amphibians like frogs; fish including bream and barbel; invertebrates like crabs and lobsters; plus numerous species of plants including palms, baobabs and bamboos among others.
