Batswana successfully preserved their culture and habitat, while they built their economy. This was done under difficult economic circumstances just as well under a prolonged state of peace and democracy.

Where it all began...

With a population now of about 2.3 million, historically, Botswana was largely rustic, agrarian, poor and significantly undeveloped.

In the next three decades after attaining independence in 1966, Botswana experienced huge economic growth. A chance discovery of a diamonds' treasure-trove helped develop the nation.

From thence Botswana started to build forward at a slow pace....

All along Batswana (Botswana people) understood well the need to preserve their country. And mark my words; the country has remained intact to date. But .... there is a satisfying mixture of nature and development - without one standing in the way of the other.

Pristine beauty....

Botswana people are still what they are as they were then - humble as ever. The natural habitat is pristine thanks to the preservation of its land through protected game parks and reserves.

Today, Botswana is the top destination for business investment, tourism and travel. It also boasts of a rich history, built over a strong local culture, good ethnic and racial mix, and cities and districts with distinctive attractions, which can support both research and scholarly work.

(Botswana has)
a satisfying mixture of
nature and development...

And it is your home.

Talk of having the 'best of both worlds', Botswana has maintained its strong culture, attractive scenery with undisturbed fauna and flora and built a strong economy to enable business to flourish.

The country has transformed into the world's top business investment, travel and tourism destination.
