Botswana

botswana-flag-coat

Formerly  the British Protectorate of Bechuanaland, Botswana became independent in 1966.  It has since then, had a strong stable representative democracy.  It is bordered by South Africa to the south, Namibia to the west, and Zimbabwe to the northeast, while it has a very small border with Zambia in the north as well.  Its capital is Gaborone.  Formerly it was one of the poorest countries in the world, but it has transformed itself into one of the fastest growing economies in the world.  The economy is dominated by tourism, cattle and mining.

Botswana has produced its own stamps since independence in 1966.  There is a small philatelic Museum at the Botswana Post headquarters in Gaborone.
