Land and Resources
The country has a 2470-km (1535-mi) coastline on the
Mozambique Channel and possesses several good natural harbors.
Two-fifths of Mozambique is occupied by coastal lowlands.
Inland the land rises to the west in a series of low hills and plateaus to
reach high points of 2436 m (7992 ft) on Mount Binga near the western border
and 2419 m (7936 ft) in the Namuli Highlands in the north. To the northwest,
forming the western edge of Africa's Great Rift Valley-here occupied by Lake
Nyasa (Lake Malawi) and the Shire River-is the Angonia Plateau. Soils are
generally infertile except along river valleys and in parts of the Angonia
Rivers and Lakes
The country's many rivers flow from the highlands of the west
to the Mozambique Channel in the east. Chief among these is the Zambezi
River; its upper reaches form a lake behind Cabora Bassa Dam. Other major
rivers include the Ruvuma, which forms part of the
Tanzania border, and the
Save and Limpopo rivers. Lake Nyasa forms part of the Malawi border and
drains south through the Shire River into the Zambezi River.
Mozambique has a tropical savanna type of climate, with a dry
season that lasts from April to October. July (winter) temperatures average
21° C (70° F) at Pemba in the north and 18° C (65° F) at Maputo in the
south. January (summer) temperatures average about 27° C (80° F) along the
coast and lower in upland areas. Average annual rainfall decreases from 1500
mm (about 60 in) in the north to 750 mm (about 30 in) in the south, although
amounts can be irregular.
