Botswana has a landscape defined by the Kalahari Desert, which is 70% of its territory, and the Okavango Delta, which becomes a lush animal habitat during the seasonal floods. The massive Central Kalahari Game Reserve, with its fossilized river valleys and undulating grasslands, is home to numerous animals including giraffes, cheetahs, hyenas and wild dogs.
With a population of just over 2 million people, Botswana is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. An estimated 10% of the population lives in the nation’s capital and largest city, Gaborone.
