For most of these words you don't need a translation. Just check them out on Wikipedia, they are names of places. Here are some basic translations:

oberguinea = a region in Guinea
sahelzone = the Sahel
horn von afrika = horn of Africa
tiefland von turan = Turan lowlands
kasachische steppe = casachian steppe
hinter-indien = part of India
victoria-wuste = Victoria desert
murray-darling-becken = Murray Darling basin
australisches bergland = Australian highlands
