Protected areas share of total land area in Botwana
The Government of Botswana has designated a sizeable portion of land area for conservation since before 1990. The protected areas in Botswana total 104,988 sq km, which is 18 per cent of the total surface area of the country, a significant proportion when compared to most other countries in the Basin, except for Zambia and Tanzania.
