Botswana - where the love of Harry and Meghan sublimated
Just a few weeks after his first meeting, Prince Harry pleaded with Meghan to join a safari tour in Africa that he thought was great. Harry later ordered a diamond wedding ring from Botswana to mark the beautiful memories of love.
Will they come back for a honeymoon or for other charitable activities? Still an unanswered question but with the spread of the media, many have added curiosity about the land that doesn't really much impress visitors compared to other popular names such as South Africa, Kenya or Morocco.
Why is Botswana so attracted to Prince Harry, going deep into the country in the north of South Africa? You will recognize dozens of reasons for the Prince to "fall in love" with this land.
A corner of Meno A Kwena is said to be the residence of Harry and Meghan when dating in Botswana.
1. Botswana has more elephants than anywhere else
As the largest living mammal in the world, Botswana has the largest number of wild elephants in the world and is protected in national parks. Thanks to the efforts of the government and the local people, the number of elephants here remains stable.
2. Botswana has a heavy metal music scene
Really? Yes, the Botswana people love heavy metal music and the seemingly underground flow is emerging. Their bands have also been continually invited to European music festivals and many papers have praised that Africa is the ultimate limitation of the metal.
3. Botswana has one of the most robust cats in the world
If you do not have the eyes of kite birds watching endless grasslands, choose Chobe National Park where you can take a short stroll to see the lions and leopards in large numbers in Africa.
4. Nearly half of the country is preserved
The Botswana government spends 45% of the land fund for conservation. That is why the country has rich flora and fauna and colorful national parks.
5. The land of the sparse people
At the average of just 3.5 people per square kilometre of land, Botswana has been honored as one of the least populated countries in the world. Thanks to that you will escape the suffocation in the big cities and spoiled amidst the airy space of Botswana atmosphere.
6. Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is one of the seven natural wonders of Africa and is also on the World Heritage List. Spread over an area of 15,000 square kilometres, this beautiful delta brings with it a wide variety of wildlife and plants, including African elephants, Nile crocodiles, hyenas and black rhinoceros.
7. "Louvre Museum" of the desert
Visiting the hills of Tsodilo in the north of the country, where Unesco calls it the "Louvre Museum of the Desert", visitors can admire the collection of dense rock drawings in a corner of the Kalahari desert. Venerated by the Hambukushu and San communities, Tsodilo Hill is home to 4500 paintings dating back 100,000 years.
8. No sea, but you can still go on a yacht
The Chobe River, one of Africa's most energetic runs, will take you through the habitat of hippopotamuses or buffaloes, and sometimes elephants plunging into the water to avoid the hot sun. Take a seat on the Zamberzi Queen Cruise, making sure you have a memorable experience.
9. Botswana owns one of the largest salt deltas in the world
Makgadikgadi Pan is the leftover basin of the ancient Makgadikgadi lake which has spread over an area of Switzerland. Visitors can now walk across the dry salt lake by bike, watching zebras or antelopes.
10. Botswana is one of the most liberal African countries
According to Freedom House, only eight African states are truly democratic and Botswana stands on the same level as Cape Verde, Senegal, Tunisia, Ghana, Benin, Namibia and South Africa.
11. The top nation of rhino preservation
While the number of wild rhinoceros in the world is decreasing due to hunting for horns, white and black rhinoceros at the Khama Rhino Sanctuary on the east coast of the country strictly protected. Conservationists have been monitoring individual and are attempting to raise the number of rhinoceros in Botswana.
