Like the above, I don't think CZs are particularly good on ergonomics. Much too fat a grip//too long a trigger reach DA. This is true for me for all the DA service-size guns however.
As to the grip feel, I have heard (read?) that the Browning Hi-Power was an influence. It's known to be a great grip.
Also, CZ is from the former Czechoslovakia, not Botswana. I am sure they were very aware in 1975 of what was out there, and knew Hi-Powers sold worldwide to police and militaries, and designed the CZ 75 to be a competitor.
