This region occupies altitudes from 200 to 1,400m and receives a mean annual rainfall of 125 to 500mm.

It accounts for some 12.6% of the total area of the country. It is characterized by scattered deciduous thorny shrubs and acacia, with small leaves, less than 4m high and usually resin or gum-bearing and aromatic. Between the shrubs the ground is covered with tufts of grass species and other plants.
