Botswana is a great travel destination for nature safaris. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and east, by Namibia to the west, and by Zimbabwe to the east.
The massive Kalahari Desert covers more than 70 percent of Botswana, spans about 360,000 square miles (900,000 square kilometres), and touches nine African countries.
Tourists from all over the globe visit Botswana for safaris and a chance to see amazing wildebeests, giraffes, jackals, hyenas, lions, cheetahs, and other animal species.
Botswana is also a destination for birdwatchers because many bird species stop over as they migrate and many others live in the national parks and reserves year round. The greater and lesser flamingos are colourful residents of Botswana.
