You do not say where from but let us guess the US of A.

In that case you will need to route through a major hub such as Johannesburg.

You may have to fly from Joburg to Gaborone, on to Francistown, if there are not direct flights from Joburg on the days you need to travel. The Air Botswana website should have schedule and fare information for flights from Joburg. You could also get to Gaborone and rent a car and drive to Francistown, but it would be a 4-5 hour drive, if I recall correctly.

Another airline flying into Botswana is SA Express. I'm not sure if they fly from JNB to Francistown. They fly into Gaborone.

SA Express has more scheduled flights into Gaborone and they are sometimes cheaper than Air Botswana.
