Travel within Africa

Reaching out for some more wisdom as this next big trip (aiming for June/July 2016) starts to come into focus!

Since I am hoping to book on Qatar using miles, I am planning to fly into Cape Town and out of Zanzibar. This means the beginning and end (safari in Tanzania before a few days in Zanzibar) are my parameters and in between I plan to visit Victoria Falls and one other location - possibly the coast of Namimbia, using Walvis Bay as my entry/exit points.

My questions at the moment are:

1 - What additional destination would you add for a well balanced trip? I feel that the piece we may be missing is something more engaged with the local community, although I am not sure how to do that in a short amount of time without it being one of the very touristy set-ups. Would also, of course, love to do a gorilla trek but that is just not in the budget for this trip. So, suggestions?

2 - It seems to be both expensive and time consuming to fly from place to place. Are there any specific airlines that I should look at that may not be coming up on my search engines? Any other tips in this area? Perhaps a specific order of locations that may be the most cost/time efficient?

Thanks, as always.
