Botswana, Mozambique vs. South Africa

Jump to last reply

This is my first posting although I have been following a number of threads for the past 2 months and have found the information unbelievably helpful. I have hesitated to join since a previous post to some travel bulletin board in 1999 elicited cyber rage because I wanted to take my 3 year old to Virgin Gorda. Well, she's 17 now, she's been all over the world and now we're taking her with us to southern Africa, April 1 - April 15, 2012, our first visit to Africa. I have two itineraries that I am considering, both similar in price, both have the animal viewing, safari, beach time and Vic Falls activities (bungee may be out...) that we want to do. Your sage wisdom, seasoned travelers, please.
Door # 1
Botswana (2 nights) Oddballs' Enclave, (Okavango Delta), 2 nights Camp Savuti (Chobe National Park), 2 nights Victoria Falls (Ilala Lodge), 5 nights Vilanculos, Mozambique (Casa Rex).
This trip includes 3 nights in Joburg to be able to make connecting flights in, around and out.
Door #2
2 nights Kapama Southern Camp, 1 night Hazyview, 3 nights Elephant Plains, 2 nights Thonga Beach Lodge, 1 night St. Lucia Wetlands, 3 nights Victoria Falls (Zambezi Sun). (1 or 2 nights in Joburg for flight connections.)
Your insights are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
