Francistown, in Botswana's eastern bulge, is the oldest town in the country. It was named for an early prospector, Daniel Francis, who was a prominent figure in the 1860's gold rush that occurred in the Tati area 30 miles (50 kilometers) southeast of Francistown. Today, Francistown has grown to a population of over 60,000, making it the second largest town in Botswana after the capital of Gabarone. Most visitors to Botswana pass through Francistown, owing to its location on the main road from Gabarone to the north. At Francistown, the road forks, with the western fork leading to Maun and the eastern fork leading to Kasane.
