Swaziland is a land-locked country bordered by Mozambique and South Africa. Despite its small size Swaziland supports a wide variety of flora and fauna (2 000 plant species and 500 bird species as well as other game in nature reserves) in four distinct physiographic regions, ranging from the mountainous highveld to the west, to the lowveld, which is the hottest and driest region of the country, to the east. The climate is subtropical, being dry and cool in the winter and hot and wet in summer. Variations occur within the country according to the relief.
