My Jun 2019 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 1-Jun-2019 and 17-Jun-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

All the travel worked very smoothly. Thank you.

We were able to book our bags back all the way from Livingstone airport to Heathrow on our return flight even though we had two separate bookings for the two flights. So didn't have to touch them in Johannesburg which made life a lot easier.

We were not able to book through to Maun on our flight out from Heathrow, but maybe we should have pushed harder and we were flying BA. However in Johannesburg airport on the way out we went straight through the international terminal, talked to the ground staff at the international desk and they arranged for our bags to be collected form the baggage carrousel from our BA flight and transferred to our Maun flight so that, again, we did not have to touch them until we got to Maun.

We had had the bags wrapped at Heathrow and that simplified the procedures at Maun and we were not required to open our bags before we got on the MaunAir flight.

I have no idea if we were simply lucky or whether what we did can be repeated.
