Northern Namibia, Botswana, Kruger -- similar or different?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning our first (and, probably, our only) trip tp Africa for July next year. We will have 3 to 4 weeks available for this. We want to spend some time in Namibia to enjoy the contrasts that that country seems to offer, and also to have ample opportunity for game-viewing. A visit to Victoria Falls somewhere along the line would be preferred too.
We are still at the tossing-ideas-around stage, but wonder if 10-12 days in Namibia, 4-5 days in Botswana (Okavango Delta?), and a few days in Kruger NP would serve our purposes. I understand that, because of the distances involved, some fly-ins will be required, particularly in Namibia.
From the reading that I have done, it appears that Kruger NP, the Okavango Delta and Northern Namibia all offer different game-viewing opportunities and that each is a worthy scenic destination in its own right, but it may be that, in reality, they are all fairly similar and we would be hopping from one place to another for just the same sort of experience. Would we be better to (say) leave out the Kruger bit and just utilise our time in Namibia and Botswana? If visiting all three places is recommended, is there a preferred order for doing this, or is that not important?
Any help or guidance would be appreciated. I realise that this query is rather general in its nature, but I am somewhat confused at present as to how broad or narrow our focus should be, and I am suffering from GBH (Guide Book Hyperbole)!
