Anyone going to Victoria Falls from Los Angeles?

Jump to last reply

We are going to Zimbabwe in a few weeks and as part of our safari we are going to be going to a school in Hwange National Park. I have collected over 250 pounds of school supplies and am trying to figure out how to get it all there. The schools in Zimbabwe are apparently in desperate need so I really want to try to get everything there if possible. I have spent hours on the phone with Jet Blue and South African Airways, the former being really great and understanding, the latter being absolutely horrible and rude. Does any one have any experience with the airlines waiving some of the fees for luggage for charity purposes? Each extra bag is $150. We are going to bring five bags and pay for one extra but we definitely have had to cut some things out which I don't want to do. I am also going to bring a carry on full of paper and hope that the weight is not a problem on SAA, Jet Blue said it was not a problem. If anyone is going to Victoria Falls or Somalisa in Hwange and has some extra space, maybe only bringing one bag and can bring another for no charge, I would be happy to supply the bag and the school supplies to bring. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
