We have chosen to visit Botswana purely based on the countries support against elephant poaching. However I am distressed to read that poaching is now on the increase with over 80 elephants killed in recent weeks. Does anyone know if it correct that the government has disbanded the armed patrols?
If yes, Botswana will go the same way as Tanzania and see the elephant population destroyed. Along with the affluent tourist industry. Up to date information gratefully received before we make a decision regarding our holiday plans
