Southern Africa Itinerary Planning

Jump to last reply

I'm starting to plan a trip to Southern Africa for August/September 2010 and could use some help and advice on where to go. This is my second trip to Africa and based on my experiences the first time (Kenya and Tanzania), I prefer small camps in non-crowded areas. I enjoy varied landscapes and different ecosystems. I'm looking for more activities than just game drives this time, so I would like to include walking and canoeing this time. I've got around 3 weeks (plus or minus a couple of days). I'm not as concerned about the specific lodges or camps at this point, just trying to narrow down the options.

I'm pretty much sold on Zimbabwe with 3 nights in Hwange, 3 nights Mana Pools (canoe safari). and 2 nights in Vic Falls, but the rest of the trip is open. That's where I could use some help. I'm thinking I could 2 of the 3 following options:

Botswana - 3 nights Okavango Delta; 3 nights Linyati
Zambia - 3 nights North or South Luangwa; 3 nights Kafue
Namibia - 7 day package - (Namib, Skeleton Coast, Etosha)

Will I see something different in Zambia than in Zimbabwe? Are there other parks I should visit in any of these countries? Do I need more time at any of these locations. I'm trying to narrow down the locations and then I can start looking at camps/lodges.

Any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thoughts?
