Country of the World Botswana

About the country Botswana, its location, size, population, leaders and rulers.



Size: 231,805 sq. mi. (600,372 sq. km.).

Population: 768,000.

Nearly the entire population of Botswana in southern Africa is Botswana except for approximately 15,000 Bushmen (mostly living in the Kalahari Desert), 5,000 whites (including several isolated communities of Afrikaner farmers), and 4,500 people of mixed race. Botswana is one of the only two countries in black Africa that has a democratic form of government with a multiparty system (the other is Gambia). World wildlife associations are up in arms over a proposed plan to drain the famed Okovango Swamp to provide irrigation to arid areas of Botswana.
