If you are ever lucky enough to go to Botswana, you will probably go to the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta. The delta is the home of an estimated 200,000 large mammals that includes elephant, buffalo, hippo, wildebeest, giraffe crocodile, lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena, rhino, zebra, warthog and baboon. No wonder people want to visit!
