Damn I just looked up this city. Both Gaborone and Francistown are close to resembling "first world" city, in the central areas at least. I would have never believed this shot was from Botswana.

Both Gaborone and Ftown are under considerable redevelopment so will look even better in a few years.

Gaborone should start working on a BRT or commuter rail system before it gets too big. That would really put it ahead of similar sized SSA cities.
LOL its never going to get too big.

2 million people in whole country.

What they DO need is to stop the sprawl and build up density. They seem to be influence by SA suburbanism.

I see Gaborone could be a city like Portland in Oregon. A decent mid-density CBD surrounded by low/medium density housing yet still walkable.
