The Jewel of Africa, Botswana is one of the best wildlife destinations in the world. The country is renowned for its large, inland river delta, the Okavango Delta. Botswana is also home to the earth’s most impressive salt pan, The Makgadikgadi, and the largest continuous desert, The Kalahari. As a forerunner in conservation efforts on the African continent, nearly a fifth of Botswana’s territory is protected in national parks. In northern Botswana lies Chobe National Park with its prolific elephant population.
