The seasonality is an important control on plant growth and a regulator of river flows. Four main types of vegetation are found: savanna woodlands (known as forest) in the north, a series of dry woodlands to the south of these, arid and semiarid grassland, scrubland, and bushland in the Namib and Kalahari deserts and their environs, and Mediterranean vegetation along the southern coast.
The semiarid plains and plateaus that cover much of the region contain animals commonly associated with the East African plains—e.g., antelopes, gazelles, zebras, elephants, and the big cats.
To the southeast of the veld is the Drakensberg range, which includes the region’s highest peak—Lesotho’s Mount Ntlenyana, at 11,424 feet (3,482 metres).
In Namibia the coastal margin includes the extremely dry Namib desert, which, in the south, merges eastward into the great sandy expanse of the Kalahari.
Shifting geographic and political boundaries and changing historiographical perspectives render this impossible.
Research into local history in the late 20th and early 21st century has presented fragmented historical knowledge, and older generalizations have given way to a complex polyphony of voices as new subfields of history—gender and sexuality, health, and the environment, to name but a few—have developed.
Yeah, so, I am dating and it's nice to finally feel open to that.
Because for a while I was jaded and cynical and not interested at all.”So, Kathryn’s dating checklist doesn’t quite exist yet -- but she does have one very specific requirement.“Under 55,” she jokes, a not-so-subtle jab at her ex.
Really her just crossing boundaries, as far as my role as a mother,” Kathryn teases.There are some two dozen large national parks and game reserves in the area as well as many smaller ones, most located in the open or partially wooded plains.At the beginning of the 21st century, several transfrontier parks were opening, including Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, the first transnational park, and the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, among the largest parks in the world.People of European ancestry began migrating to the region in the mid-17th century; they now constitute a sizable minority in South Africa and a much smaller population in Zimbabwe.The history of Southern Africa cannot be written as a single narrative.“Attacking that role, and she just crossed a line in so many different ways, several times, and that's just, yeah, my breaking point.”As for her own dating life, Kathryn confesses that she is finally getting back out there and trying to meet someone.“I actually am finally at a place where I am open to dating, and I have been dating,” she says.
