Our Mission

The mission of The Botswana Society is to make Botswana better known both to itself and to the whole world. The Botswana Society is one of Botswana’s oldest, active, indigenous NGOs. Founded in 1968 two years after independence, The Botswana Society has established itself as a leading producer of knowledge on all things Botswana. The Botswana Society's publications are respected internationally, its public forums address issues of national importance, and recently The Botswana Society has positioned itself as a leading force in diversifying Botswana’s tourism sector to include cultural heritage. The Botswana Society operates the Cultural Heritage Tour of Gaborone (the nation’s capital) to educate residents and visitors alike, and it works with local communities to develop archaeological sites as tourist destinations.
