BOTSWANA

Botswana has by far Africa’s largest elephant population, and is one of the few countries in Africa where elephants are expanding their geographical range. The majority of Botswana’s elephants are in the North and have historically migrated to and from neighbouring Namibia, Angola, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Botswana was a founder member of the

EPI in 2014.
