Einführung/Introduction Swaziland/Swasiland

Das kleine Königreich Swasiland ist in weiten Teilen von Südafrika und von Mosambik im Osten umgeben. Es zeichnet sich durch hohe Gebirge aus, in manchen Gebieten gibt es Hügel- und tiefer liegendes Land. Die Landschaftszonen beeinflussen die Regenfälle, die zwischen Oktober und März vorherrschen. Im Tiefland sind sie vergleichsweise gering, hier werden relativ hohe Temperaturen erreicht. Demgegenüber ist das Bergland kühler, aber dennoch subtropisch.
