Botswana is officially known as the Republic of Botswana and is a completely landlocked country in southern Africa. A whopping 70% of Botswana’s territory is comprised of the Kalahari Desert, but it is also a very green and lush country with sprawling waterways that are traditionally navigated using a “mokoro” (tree trunk hollowed out to make a canoe).
Botswana is a member of the African Union, the Southern African Development Community, the Commonwealth of Nations, and the United Nations and is a proudly peaceful and stable nation, and it is no wonder that it is home to one of the stronger African currencies, the Pula.
Formerly protected under British Colonial Rule as a Bechuanaland Protectorate, Botswana became independent in 1966. Bot swana means “place of Tswana” in SeTwana. The people of Botswana are known as the Tswana or Batswana people. Botswana’s success is owed to its abundant state resources based upon diamond mining, responsibly and equitably distributed, and its peacefulness and stability.
Alongside the official language of English, Setswana is the main language of the country. However, at least 26 others are spoken by different ethnic communities. These fall into two different language groups – Bantu and Khoisan. The Khoisan tongues are sometimes called the ‘click’ languages, because of their integral click sounds. Gender roles have slowly dissipated in the country, but as in many Africa countries, some aspects of traditional culture, such as respect for one’s elders and the right to be heard, are seen as important elements today.
