The Swiss Africa Group of Companies.

BotswanaConnect consists of a team of professionals, each an expert in his/her own right. Our team members have more than 50 years of combined experience in Botswana.

We established a portal, where our professionals will give you access to all of the best in Botswana, whether it is services or whether you need a property or simple advice on a certain matter, such as where the schools are in Phakalane.

 We at BotswanaConnect take pride in the fact that if we cannot find you a specific service, person or property, such service, person or property is simply not available in Botswana, as BotswanaConnect has contacts and connections in every corner of Botswana and, in fact, in Southern Africa.

 So, whether you want to move your factory to Botswana’s Innovation Hub or SPEDU to enjoy tax breaks, or buy a farm in Kaka or you simply want to open a bank account in Botswana, or you are looking for finance or venture capital, we at BotswanaConnect are ready to assist you.

We do what we do, because we like what we do!

The Botswana Trust plays an important part in this estate and trust planning exercise, but an IFSC company or Innovation Hub company and incentives such as SPEDU could also be utilised.  SAP works closely in association with Sable International for the smooth and efficient movement of client’s funds cross-border within the four corners of the South African currency control regulations. SAP also works together with companies such as 4D Employee Benefits and Stonehage Fleming to ensure that our clients are given excellent off-shore investment advice, and Fluctus Ltd (Seychelles) who assists in the establishment and administration of trusts.

SAP also provide escrow services.
