At far left is a spit of land, the Cape Peninsula. Just below this is Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point of the African continent. In land at centre is the pale extent of the arid Great Karoo, bounded to the left by a large fold mountain belt and to the right by an escarpment which leads up to the great plateau of South Africa (upper right). The water in the foreground is the Indian Ocean, whilst at upper left is the Atlantic Ocean.
