Miss Botswana has announced its Top 30 finalists, following auditions, which were held in Francistown and Gaborone.

At the end of the auditions, 30 contestants were selected and put through a rigorous vetting process to ensure they meet all the requirements of Miss Botswana and later on, Miss World.

This saw the young women tested both mentally and physically under the watchful eye of a fitness coach.

The contestants also enjoyed being dolled up for their  first one-on-one camera interviews that would introduce them to the nation.


As promised, the public will have the opportunity to cast their votes for their favourite contestants, securing them a place in the Top 20.

The public will also have the opportunity to vote for the Top 12.

Interested designers have been engaged to dress the contestants for both the fashion show and the Miss Botswana finale to be held on September 29 at Gaborone International Convention Centre.  This is a first for Miss Botswana as contestants do not have to pay for their clothing.
