Time crunch transiting JNB

Jump to last reply

It has been over ten years since I last transited JNB but will be doing so next month.

Unfortunately our "main" tickets are PDX >JNB via Lufthansa with a separate British Airways flight to Namibia 2 hours and 20 minutes after we land---therefore I assume we'll have to pick up our bags in JNB, go through whatever formalities are required and re-check them on to Namibia---unless any Fodorites have a sneaky way around this

Must admit I've been worried and wanted to see what the latest travel tales have been. We will of course pack change of clothes and essentials in carry-on, but would prefer not to have extra hassles after the l-o-n-g flight.

Any recent experience/advice would be welcome.
