D850 vs D500 same outcome ?

Hi - can someone please confirm my logic on this - I assume that a Nikon D850 at 45 megapixels would actually end up giving the same size and quality of image if final photo is cropped to half the size as would a Nikon D500 at full size ? if this is the case then my logic would be that I mayaswell use my Nikon D850 and crop in post rather than trying to get extra reach by using a D500..... if someone could please validate or refute my logic on this - many thanks.

I ask as i am about to go on a safari and considering whether or not to put my 500 lens on a D850 body or a D500 body.......
