OK, firstly I can't comment on Namibia/Namaqualand, but my folks went there many years ago and the stories of huge sand-dunes is something I can't get out of my mind - I need to go at some point, it sounds amazing :) Anyway, the rest: Kruger National Park - you'll be able to see almost all the famous animals of southern Africa here (if you're lucky), aside ...

Unfortunately, it was too far from Gaborone for us (670 Km), and added another 100 Km to the trip. We did found a place to stay in closer to the middle: Kang village which is 420 Km from Gaborone and about 400 Km ...
