As one of the oldest towns in Botswana and site of southern Africa’s first gold rush, Francistown, home to 92,500 people, is a typical frontier town. Strategically placed as the gateway to the north, with all the main roads to Gaborone, Zimbabwe, Maun and Kazungula passing through it. It manages to maintain its character despite being Botswana’s second-largest urban centre and ‘Capital of the North’. Francistown is still surrounded by the remnants of abandoned mines, and is now a center for industry and commerce. The booming industrial sector has caused the population of this old town to double in the last decade.
