  8. ^ Most authorities claim that Jabal Sawda, 3133 m, is the highest point in Saudi Arabia, but SRTM data indicates a lower elevation, with possible higher elevations elsewhere in the country.
  9. ^ Mount Roraima is not a sharp peak, but a tabletop mountain (a tepui), whose top is a large, roughly flat plateau divided between Guyana, Venezuela, and Brazil. While it is certain that Guyana's highest point is located on that plateau, the exact point has not been precisely determined, let alone measured; so, the altitude given here is only a rough estimate. The plateau's highest point is known to be at 2,810 m (9,219 ft), but that point is fully inside Venezuelan territory. The border tripoint was measured by a Brazilian expedition to be at 2,734 m (8,970 ft). So, the highest point in Guyana is at least that high, and given the mountaintop's peculiar topography, likely not far from that value. It should also be noted that the Guyanese side of the mountain is in a part of the country that is claimed by Venezuela as Guayana Esequiba; therefore, Venezuela does not recognize Mount Roraima as containing the highest point in Guyana.

  17. ^ Monalanong Hill is a mountain often considered the highest point of Botswana, with a questioned altitude of 1,494 metres (4,900 feet). This datum comes from the SRTM database just as the 1,491 m for Otse. The error range of these data is significantly higher (approximately 15 m), but a British explorer did a GPS reading on the top of both hills, and his measurement showed Otse slightly higher.
