Interesting combination with Qatar and RwandAir from New York to Johannesburg or Cape Town, South Africa via Doha and hopping across Africa with RwandAir on a narrow-bodied Boeing 737. 

These are sold as WB codeshares so complicates the crediting of the miles significantly. Still decent price for Q Suites from New York to Doha and back...

Seems that only Qatar is the place you can credit these miles, from their website Privilege Club members can earn Qmiles when flying on RwandAir marketed and operated flights. P fares earn 125% of distance as miles. Even if these flights have extra stops you would earn miles as JFK-DOH-KGL-CPT (28466 miles) or JFK-DOH-KGL-JNB (26824 miles). Avios is the new currency for Qatar and these can be transferred to other Avios programs such as British Airways or Iberia at a 1-1 ratio.
