The Central Plateau of South Africa has a large range of landscape. It is drained by two major rivers, the Orange and the Limpopo, and is made up of 10 smaller geographic regions as its mentioned in South Africa satellite map. The altitude varies from 600 to 2,500 m and the rainfall varies from 200 to 1200 mm annually. It is ringed in the east, south and west by the Great Escarpment.
In general the Great Escarpment slowly loses altitude into the northwestern areas of the Central Plateau. In the west of South Africa it is very dry, merging with the Kalahari in the northwest as its shown in South Africa satellite map. In the central areas the arid scrubland gives way to dry grasslands which become better watered further to the east. These grasslands extend northeastward until they reach the Witwatersrand and Magaliesberg, which are the main watershed between the Orange and Limpopo Rivers. The Witwatersrand and Magaliesberg also form part of an area of low mountain ranges surrounding a basin called the Bushveld. To the north of that the semi-arid savanna loses altitude towards the Limpopo River valley. The regions are outlined in more detail below.
South Africa is located in southern Africa as you can see in South Africa satellite map. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean, Lesotho and eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) in the eastern portion of South Africa, and Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique to the north. The map also shows many of the continent physical features in color or shaded relief.
