What we do

John Smith International runs university and polytechnic bookshops in Africa with operations currently in Botswana and business in Swaziland, Lesotho and Tanzania.

We are committed to developing our business in Africa as we are excited about the energy, opportunity and growth of these markets.


What we deliver

Working with the major international publishers, we provide a comprehensive range of textbooks at prices that can be supported by the markets we serve. Working with our host universities, we develop innovative means of securing student funds for these textbooks.
