It's a great nation almost the double one of Italy, but with a population of little superior to a million and a half of inhabitants (density 3 abs / kmq).
Big part of the territory is busy from the desert of the Kalahari; it is for this motive that the capital Gaborone and the other principal cities all they are situated along the border of the South Africa..
To north it is present an unique ecosystem to the world: the delta of the Okavango, a river that doesn't flow in sea, but that it loses him in the Kalahari, forming ample swamps, lakes, river arms, that almost all attract the animal kinds of Africa.
The zone of the Okavango, with the its luxurious lodge, is surely the best place to observe the African fauna.
