Tswana (or Setswana) is spoken by roughly 5 million people. The largest concentration of speakers is over an area that covers northern South Africa and southern Botswana (where it is the national language, and spoken by most of the population). There are much smaller numbers of speakers in Zimbabwe and Namibia, and also a small number in the UK.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Tswana as a first language that live in that territory.
