Diamond as a mineral has developed the economy of Botswana safari tours. This mineral was discovered in 1967 and this has been closely 40 years of constant growth in Africa.Fortunately,Botswana has the highest  per capita income on the continent with over $ 4,000.Botswana officials believe that the income has increased several times as when Botswana had gained its independence. Many people may be wondering how Botswana gets its high income, but the thing is that it gets its income from several sacks of diamonds mined from the Orapa mine in the country’s northeast to the Botswana Diamond  Valuing company with a sort facility in the capital Gaborone.The sorting facility has about 10 floors  and these are designed with tables laden with diamonds of every kind, shape as well as size that will be sorted furthermore graded and still certified prior to being shipped to the De Beers of Diamond center in London or England.

“England is well known to be Botswana’s diamond industry” said production manager Mike Moremong who is believed to have worked for the company since 1978.Botswana is proud to have a large population that understands that the diamond mined is that people and for few individuals who may be in the rich class. African nations with such minerals have a tendency of providing products to a few privileged individuals which is not the incase in Botswana because everything is shared equally among the poor and the rich. Employees get millions of dollars worth diamonds furthermore with tight security to protect them.
