Botswana is a landlocked country in the southern part of Africa, surrounded by Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe. It is the home to the famous Kalahari desert and the Okavango Delta. The Okavango Delta is a vast inland river delta in northern Botswana. About 38% of the country’s land is reserved for national parks, which is one of the highest in the world. Botswana boasts of the highest concentration of Elephants in entire Africa, about 50,000 of them, spread mainly across Chobe national park and Linyanti region. About 80% of Botswana’s area is taken up by the Kalahari desert, which is home to many animals ranging from Meerkats, Flamingos, and Leopards to African wild dogs. Still, there are vast expanses of untouched lands in the country, and it is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. At the same time, it features some of the most luxury resorts in entire Africa, and a few which are accessible only by chartered flights during the rainy season. Game viewing here is plenty and Chobe National Park, Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta and Central Kalahari GR are some of the most popular game reserves in the country.
