- Harry met children and helped plant trees in the newest nature reserve in Botswana
- His wife and son stayed behind in South Africa on day four of their visit
The Duke of Sussex has arrived along the banks of the Chobe River in Botswana in the north of the country to participate in a tree planting project.
Harry gave five children and met Dr. Mike Chase, the founder of Elephant Without Borders, who, together with a local organization, is developing the site into a nature and cultural reserve.
The land was privately owned, but has been promised to the local community and Dr. Chase will manage it with the aim of creating a flourishing riverside forest.

He will later meet young people who speak out for their peers with HIV when he visits a health center in Botswana.
The supporters of Let Youth Lead, who are chosen and supported by Harry & # 39; s Sentebale charity, welcome their royal guest, who is going to Africa for 10 days in the northern city of Kasane.

Sentebale was co-founded in 2006 by the duke in Lesotho to help young people with HIV, and three years ago the work expanded to nearby Botswana.
The country has the third highest prevalence of HIV in the world and the duke's charity has 47 Botswana clubs that support 1,300 HIV-positive young people every month, through self-confidence-building initiatives, practical health advice and peer-to-peer support.
Living camps are also staged with the same goals and the number of people seeking help is growing.
Sentebale's Let Youth Lead lawyers have been lobbying on international platforms and meeting national figures since the initiative was launched to give young people a voice to discuss issues that concern them, such as HIV / AIDS.
The young leaders will recreate a camp activity for Harry praising children to increase their self-confidence through singing and dancing.
Harry will then discuss with them why they represent their colleagues before listening to a live broadcast of the Radio Positive show from Sentebale, organized by two lawyers at a popular FM station.
