Francistown is located some 260 miles (418 kilometers) from Gaborone, the country's capital.
It's no surprise Francistown is such a hotspot for travelers; Botswana is dotted with terrific cities, attractions and landscapes.
Bird watching and wildlife watching are just some of the many relaxing activities in this area.
Savvy travelers know that eating what the locals eat is a good technique to really get to the heart of an area. Two of the region's typical ingredients are mopane worms and lamb. Seswaa (meat stew) and pap (maize porridge) are common dishes enjoyed by visitors and local foodies alike. Botswana is also the perfect place to enjoy lerotse (melon). The bars in this region often have Castle, so order one if you love quality beer. Don't forget, regardless of what time it is, Botswana is a great place to enjoy ginger beer.
Those spending time in Botswana or anywhere else in Botswana on the 30th of September, can partake in the national Botswana Day events and celebrations.
For those who intend on arriving and departing by air, keep in mind that the nearest major airport is Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport, 110 miles (177 kilometers) to the northeast of Francistown.
