Angola, officially the Republic of Angola, is a country on the West coast of Africa, whose territory is bordered on the North and Northeast by the Democratic Republic of Congo, to the East by Zambia, Namibia to the South and West by the Atlantic Ocean. It also includes the enclave of Cabinda, through which it borders the Republic of the Congo to the North.

The country is divided into an arid coastal strip stretching from Namibia to Luanda, a moist interior plateau, a dry savanna in the South and Southeast interior, and rainforest in the North and in Cabinda. The Zambezi River and several tributaries of the Congo River have their sources in Angola. The coastal strip is tempered by the cold Benguela current, which results in a coast climate, similar to that of Peru or Low California. There is a short rainy season, which runs from February to April. The summers are hot and dry, winters are mild. The interior highlands have a mild climate with a rainy season from November to April, followed by a cooler, dry season from May to October. The altitude ranges generally between 1,000 and 2,000 meters. The Northern region and Cabinda have rain throughout most of the year.
