I'm sorry if this question has been asked and answered but I haven't found it if it has. We will be traveling on A.B. from JNB to MUB. We will each be carrying a duffle type bag with our clothes, which will easily fit the weight limit restrictions for the chartered small aircraft flights that we'll be taking from camp to camp once we get there (and we will be able to carry them onto the plane for our flight from the States)... we'll also have a smaller backpack with valuables, passports, etc. My question is, should we plan to have to check the larger duffle bags at JNB, or can we hand them over to the baggage guy as we step onto the plane, to be put underneath in the cargo area? We are much more comfortable with that idea, although we won't have anything extremely valuable in the bags.
Thanks for any info you might be able to provide.
