Land and Resources
Swaziland is roughly oval-shaped. The elevation of the land
decreases from west to east. The mountainous western portion in places
reaches an altitude of more than 1200 m (more than 4000 ft) above sea level.
The hilly central region, or veld (grassland), has an average elevation of
about 600 m (about 2000 ft). The eastern region, or low veld, is a rolling
area that averages from 120 to 300 m (about 400 to 1000 ft) above sea level;
it is bounded on the east by the Lebombo Mountains. The principal rivers are
the Komati, Lusutfu, and Umbuluzi. The steady flow of the rivers, fed by
abundant rain in the mountains, supports irrigation and hydroelectric power
projects in the lowlands. Swaziland also has quantities of several valuable
minerals, including coal, asbestos, diamonds, and gold.
The climate is mostly temperate, with cool temperatures at
higher elevations and more tropical weather in the low veld. Precipitation,
which is heavier toward the west, is concentrated in the warmer months of
October through April; the rest of the year is characterized by sunny, clear
weather. The temperature in Mbabane, located in the western highlands,
ranges from 15° to 25° C (59° to 77° F) in January and 6° to 19° C (42° to
67° F) in July.
