Abstract: This paper examines the economic growth and development success of Botswana and Mauritius. Both countries have arguably achieved substantive economic growth rates and development over the last four decades while the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa has stagnated and underdeveloped. Botswana and Mauritius provide intriguing examples of how economic growth and development was pursued in both countries which at independence, were written off by many critics who argued that due to their small populations, geography and poor socio-economic factors stood no chance of progressing up the chain of developing countries or attaining the economic growth and development levels both desired. To prove these critics wrong, both countries have pursued sound macroeconomic policies which reflect many aspects of a developmental state model and aided by a versatile labour force, strong institutions and state governance, have embarked on a path of developmental prosperity which can only be envied by the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa.
