Botswana

Botswana is a landlocked country in South Africa. More than 70% of its territory belongs to the Kalahari Desert. The country borders with the Republic of South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. It is comparable in size to Madagascar.

Botswana has several areas that are habitats of wildlife. In addition to the Nile delta and desert areas there are lawns and savannas where the blue gnu, many antelope and other mammals and birds are found. North Botswana is one of the few remaining areas where there are populations of the endangered African wild dog. Chobe National Park is the largest concentration in the world of African elephants. The park covers about 11,000 square kilometers and has about 350 bird species. Chobe National Park and the Moremi hunting reserve are the main tourist attractions.
