Botswana is wonderful but very expensive.

Zimbabwe is very unstable right now as well. Vic Falls is terrific though.

Maybe Zambia?
I assure you that Cape Town is still most civilised. A sheep was slaughtered on a beach in Clifton (not Camps Bay) several weeks ago for a (peaceful) political stunt. Ever since things have been quiet. I'd certainly feel less safe in Zambia (though not unsafe, beautiful country)
