Angola is a country situated on the western Atlantic coast of the South African continent. The country falls between south latitude 12.30 degrees and east longitude 18.30 degrees. The country covers an area of 1246700 square kilometres. The country borders the South Atlantic Ocean. The coastline measure up to be 100 kilometres long.
The country can easily be divided into 4 ecological regions: The coastal lowlands, High plateaus, Hills and mountains and the rain forest. The coastal lowlands are relatively flat and low lying lands with very few terraces. The high plateau is an area with an average height of 1500 metres and is an arable area with lots of rolling hills and plains.
The Cuanza River separates the mountains into two parts towards the north and south respectively. The northern parts near the coast rise gradually and have an average height of 1500 metres whereas the southern part of this region rises abruptly and even has the highest peak within it known as Mount Moco which is 2620 metres above sea level. The furthest range to the south is called the Serra de Chella.
The two major rivers flowing through the country are the Zambezi and Congo. The latter is the longest river in the country as it flows for 4344 metres.
