Well, it probably didn't realise that "Far North" is an administrative region in New Zealand, to start with! [[User:Grutness|Grutness talk Grutness.jpg]] 06:51, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)

[edit]

A controversy has erupted over the choice of map for this article. The two candidates are shown here, along with any others that other Wikipedians may choose to enter. Feel free to make any comments. The lower map may also appear in the corresponding Geography article for this country. Kelisi 02:14, 2 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Rain forest is missing[edit]

It says here: "Angola has four principal natural regions: the *1. arid coastal lowland, stretching from Namibia to Luanda and characterized by low plains and terraces;

  • 2. green hills and mountains, rising inland from the coast into a great escarpment;
  • 3. a large area of high inland plains of dry savanna, called the high plateau (planalto), which extends eastward and south-east from the escarpment;
  • 4. and rain forest in the north and in Cabinda."
But there is no text on the last one.
