Welcome to Botswana
Botswana is one of the main tourist destinations in Africa. Rich in tourism resources, it is a country with a large number of wild animals in Africa. The government designated 38% of the country's land as wildlife sanctuaries, and established 3 national parks and 5 wildlife sanctuaries. Chobe National Park and Okavango Delta Wildlife Sanctuary are the main tourist spots.
In addition to diamonds, there are also herds of elephants, wandering cats, and a large number of birds everywhere. It is an animal carnival!
