Our group will depart the US for Malawi, traveling through Johannesburg - - we arrive late and our flight to Malawi is the next morning, so we'll be spending the night at a hotel near the airport. We have the choice to check through to Lilongwe from the US, or to check through only to Johannesburg and then re-check in the next morning. I've read several of the posts regarding luggage concerns and security.
If we elect to pick up our luggage in Johannesburg, what choices will we have? With two heavy bags per person, it would be convenient to find a secure, locked storage in the airport to avoid the logistical "pain" of hauling all of it to the local hotel. Is there such a reliable storage service? What advice do you have for us in this case? Many thanks, Tom
