Central Botswana is dominated by the Kalahari Desert. The Okavango Delta is towards the northwest and is one of the largest deltas in the world. The north central area comprises the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.
The lowest point in the country is located under the meeting point of the Shashe and Limpopo Rivers at 513 metres. The Monalanong Hill is the highest natural peak in the country standing tall at 1494 metres above sea level.
The four main rivers form basins within the country: Limpopo Basin to the east, Okavango Delta to the north central, Chobe river in the Zambezi Basin and the Orange river basin to the south. The Orange river flow for the most distance across the country.
