Description:

The central part of the catchment areas to the Atlantic.

Summary / Notes:

The biggest part of the Atlantic drainage area covers the river systems of the Kuiseb, Swakop, Omaruru and Ugab. These form - on account of their sandy and groundwater-bearing river-beds - the most densely populated portion of South West Africa, with the exception of Ovamboland (where 45% of the country's total population lives.)
