Default Is there an especially large British expat community in Botswana?

Hi. I work for the weekly edition of The Daily Telegraph - called simply The Telegraph - which is our expat version of the newspaper produced from London. We're having a bit of a relaunch and I've been looking at some feedback from readers and wondering whether the figures we have from Botswana are an anomaly. There seem to be a lot of British expats there - we had the same number of responses from Botswana as we did from Saudi - and I was wondering why? Any guidance gratefully received.

There is a disproportionally large expat presence in Bots esp Gaberone.
For fun you should phone the Bull and Bush transfer some money and buy a round at 6 pm on a Friday and ask for any Brit to speak to you.
You will be on the phone for hours.

That sounds like one way to drum up subscriptions... Are all the Brits there for one sector of the economy? What do you put the numbers down to?

Cheap Beer??
No idea, but do you think its possible that Less Brit Expats in Dubai fall into your target market?
It may also be that your online web page may be faster than other publications as Botswana struggles with bandwidth
