I am arriving into Jo'burg at 7.25 am local time (with wife + toddler) on a Saturday morning (late Aug 2013). I have an onward connection to Cape town.
How much time do you reckon one needs to clear customs, pick up bags and catch the connection?
I know these things can't be predicted but a general sense would be helpful. I have read that there's only 1 building in OR Tambo which houses both arrivals and departures on different floors.
How strict or thorough is the customs - any unusual policies? for eg, in auckland new zealand, is very strict about food items coming into the country....we had to declare all items of food and they took close to 30 mins to go thru all our bags before letting us proceed!
