About Botswana

Botswana is a landlocked country in Southern Africa located north of South Africa. The country is sparsely populated because up to 70% of the country is covered by the Kalahari Desert. Botswana's population of only 2 million people is concentrated in the eastern part of the country. Highest elevation are the Otse Hill (1,491 m) in central south of the country.

With an area of 582,000 sq km the country is slightly bigger than France, or slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Texas.

Major geographical features of Botswana.

The Kalahari "a waterless place", a vast arid to semi-arid area in Southern Africa covering much of Botswana and parts of Namibia and South Africa.

The Okawango Delta, the Okawango river does not make it to the sea, instead the river spreads into a delta in the Kalahari Desert where most of its water is lost to evaporation and transpiration, it is the world's largest inland delta. Each year approximately 11 cubic kilometers of water irrigate the 15,000 km² area and some flood-waters drain into Lake Ngami, east of Sehithwa village. The Moremi Game Reserve, a National Park, spreads across the eastern side of the delta.

The Makgadikgadi Pans, one of the largest salt flats in the world. The pan is all that remains of the ancient Lake Makgadikgadi, which once covered an area larger than Switzerland, but evaporated several thousand years ago.
