The Minister of Botswana wildlife, the environment and tourism, Tshekedi Khama, was concerned about the high number of elephants from Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe entering Botswana in search of water points, APA learned Monday from the Yarona FM radio. 

This situation is a challenge for Botswana as the country will have to take responsibility for the care of these elephants, said the radio, adding that people are affected by the movements of elephants.
Faulty drilling of the park and water ponds that are dry have forced elephants to migrate in large numbers in Botswana. 
The countries members of the cross-border conservation area Kavango Zambezi (KAZA) are accused of not having prepared for drought.
