Baggage Precautions for JNB

Jump to last reply

DH and I leave in a few weeks for our long awaited Africa trip. Everything is in place, but I have one more concern. We will be flying on SAA via Johannesburg three times: JFK/JNB/NBO, NBO/JNB/CPT and CPT/JNB/JFK. Yea, I know it's not the ideal itinerary, but we got a hot deal on the airfare. My concern it that I have heard that JNB has the highest incidence of pilfering by baggage handlers during connecting flights. I don't take items that are expensive. I'm not sure what the baggage handlers are looking for. Flyer Talk suggests having your bags wrapped if transiting JNB. I will probably have a bottle of wine and school supplies in my check in bag. What are your thoughts on this matter?
