Botswana remains one of the best places to see herds of elephant in great numbers. It is estimated by the World Wildlife Fund that around 290,000, or around 70% of the entire population on the continent, of them are located in this southern African country. These massive pachyderms can cover great distances in the search for food or water and herds can stick together for many years. They have fantastic memories on where they have traveled and often coming back to places again and again that prove to be a reliable source of nourishment. That would make sense since they have the largest brain of all land animals!
