The African country of Botswana banned hunting in 2014 ~ as a result, the wildlife is thriving without fear. That's why I chose Botswana for my first African experience. It is an incredible place. Botswana has more elephants than any other African country~ and given that elephants are so intelligent, they are starting to cross into Botswana because they know they will be safe. This little baby was surrounded by giant parents and relatives who watched over her with tenderness and love.
