HUNTING IN BOTSWANA
Much of Botswana is the Kalahari Desert, home to the world’s largest inland delta, the Okavango Delta. It is one of the least populated countries in the world, which gives visitors great contact with untouched nature. In addition to the Kalahari desert and delta, there are numerous meadows with other game species such as waterbucks, hippos, lechwe and impalas.
The Chobe district has the world’s largest concentration of elephants. Due to the escalating conflict between humans and nature, the ban on elephant hunting was lifted in 2019.
In Botswana, as in most African countries, wild and untouched nature is their biggest attraction. One of Botswana’s greatest natural treasures is the Okavango Delta. Formerly, the river drained from Lake Makgadikgadi (now dry). Today, on its site is the Kalahari Basin, of which approximately 15,000 km² is irrigated from the Okavango Delta. In the final section, the river gradually slows down, creating backwaters and wet islands overgrown with grass and reeds – home to thousands of animals.
