Help us choose a destination!!

We are 2 girls wanting to go to Africa next year. I have already been to South Africa and Mozambique, but want to go somewhere else this time. Originally we where thinking about going to Tanzania in February, but will only be able to get 2 weeks off work at that time. So we were thinking about going around Easter instead, which means that we can go for 3 weeks. However - this is the rainy season + I've heard that Tanzania has become a lot more touristy recently? So we have considered going to Zambia, with a few days in Malawi as well, and maybe a sidetrip to Chobe or Okavango. But we keep changing our minds as to what we would most like to do - so would love to get other people's opinion; where should we go??? Want to see some animals - but don't really want to go somewhere that feels more like a zoo (Kruger was great, but want to go somewhere that makes you feel more like you are actually in the wild!)!And does anyone know what the weather will be like in Zambia in April? It seems like April is somewhat of an in-between month when it comes to the rainy and the dry season? Any advice would be greatly appreciated (also on accommodation, tours+++)! And we are on a budget - so we don't want to stay in any luxury lodges...

Have you considered Namibia? A great destination for independent travellers and works for all budgets...

Depends on what you'd most like to see - stunning landscapes, animals, local peoples, bushveld...?

Choroni,

The Emerald Season package in the following link would be a great value and include time in Victoria Falls from where you could add a few nights in Botswana or in Hwange (Zimbabwe)
