Hello, I am traveling to Zambia and will have to go through Tambo International in Johannesburg. I am wondering if anyone knows how it works there between arrival from UK and later departure to Lusaka? I believe I have to pick up baggage and then check in again for the second flight?
Also, I have heard many stories about baggage theft at the airport. Any thoughts on that?
If just traveling through will I have to go through SA customs and passport control or would I just be going from one desk and gate to another?
Thanks for taking my questions. Last time I traveled through that airport, 2008, under different travel circumstances, I found it utterly chaotic so am dreading this part of the journey a bit.
