Now, if I do 150 and 60 cont. I need another 33 days to be tax free. Let's say I have a vacation in botswana and namibia for 40 days, do those days count towards my tax days.

The legislation reads that you need to have spent at least 183 days out of SA in a calender year, so yes this would count towards those days. However only the income earned would be tax free, if you received other income from a SA source while on vacation such as interest then you would still have to pay tax on that income. The 183 day rule applies to work performed outside of SA only.
