Botswana is an independent republic, situated in South Africa. It's a landlocked country and the Kalahari Desert takes about 70% of the territory of Botswana. However, the state made significant economic advances, which is mostly the merit of its first president Sereste Khama.
Celebration of President's Day in Botswana lasts for two days. Before 2006 it was an official two-day holiday, but it was transformed into one-day holiday under the Public Holidays Amendment. Nevertheless, many private and public institutions still typically observe a two-day holiday.Remind me with Google Calendar
