WELCOME TO BOTSWANA

Since its independence, Botswana has enjoyed significant economic growth. In addition to its having become one of the world’s fastest growing economies despite its impoverished past, Botswana has a diverse cultural community and it offers natural environments, beautiful landscapes and a variety of wildlife.

map_botswana2

The majority of the population lives in the eastern savannah grasslands along its borders with South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Botswana’s most important economic feature is its massive diamond production, the world’s largest, paired with its vast beef export to Europe.

 

Tourism is also an important industry of this nation. In fact, Botswana boasts a truly unique ecosystem, the Okavango Delta, which, along with the Chobe Game Reserve, provides excellent opportunities for game viewing and bird-watching. In addition, Botswana is home to one of the world’s largest herds of free-range elephants. Botswana’s Central Kalahari Game Reserve also offers good game viewing and breathtaking South African landscapes.

 

Rapid economic growth and savvy economic policies have given rise to infrastructures that have directly contributed to the population’s standard of living and enabled the nation to transform economically. Botswana has developed from a low income to a middle income economy, now deemed one of the most progressive and successful on the African continent.

 

In the developing world, this nation is one of the best-rated countries and has a long record of social and political stability.

Gaborone_0Resource guide:

Gaborone is situated between Kgale and Oodi Hills, on the Notwane River in the southeastern corner of Botswana, and 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) from the South African border. The city is served by the Sir Seretse Khama International Airport. It is an administrative district in its own right, but is the capital of the surrounding South-East District.

 

The center of the city is a long strip of commercial businesses, called the Mall, with a semicircle-shaped area of government offices to the west of the Mall. The city is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world, and this has created problems with housing and illegal settlements. Gaborone is also home to the Southern African Development Community(SADC) a supranational organization, hoping to increase economic unity.
