Safari & Traveling around Southern Africa - Options?

I have free tickets to/from South Africa, and am trying to figure out how to arrange a safari, a trip to Victoria Falls, and flights between those places.

My wife & I will be there for approx. two weeks, probably in March 2001.

My ideal itinerary would be:
Fly to Capetown - say 4 days
Safari in Botswana - say 6 days
Fly to Victoria Falls - say 3 days
Fly home.

Since I'll be taking care of flights to/from, and presumably arranging Capetown transport & accommodations, I'm wondering what my options are on arranging the rest. Will I need to book all my internal flights? Many of the tour companies include travel to/from the US or are Land-only packages. I'd like something in between, like a company that will book the flights and arrange the Safari.

I'd love to hear from anyone who's done something similar.

Since I need to book my flights ASAP, my main question at this point is if I should fly in & out of the same city (Johan, Capetown, Victoria Falls) or go for some combination. I've heard some of those flights can be expensive. Any ideas?

Once that's arranged, I'll have to start talking to tour companies to see how much of the rest they can arrange. Once again, any thoughts or info would be appreciated.
