History of Astronism in Botswana

As of December 2020, Astronism is not recognised by the government in Botswana as a religion. However, the country has a positive track record for allowing freedom of religion which means that Astronists are regarded as generally free to publicly practice and manifest their faith.

The current number of Botswanan Astronists is unknown and no estimates for the number exist. Despite this, due to one of the most popular languages in the country being English, Botswanans are able to access the full array of Astronist content.
