The north of Algeria is shaped by the Atlas Mountains. South of the mountains joins the Sahara. It takes up about 85% of the country’s area and is hardly populated. In the north of the Sahara area you can find some salt lakes. The longest river is the Cheliff with a length of 700km.

In the north on the Mediterranean coast there is a Mediterranean climate. The mean temperature is 25 ° C in August and 12 ° C in January. Precipitation predominates in winter and has an average of 500 to 1,000 mm of rain per year.

Flora and fauna
Algeria only has a forest share of 2%. 80% of the country is almost devoid of vegetation. Attempts are currently being made to counteract desertification with afforestation.

Macchie, Aleppo pines, cork oaks and holm oaks grow in the Mediterranean area. Atlas cedars, alfa grass and wormwood grow in the highlands. In the desert region, date palms can mainly be found at the oases.
