Baggage Questions Clarification

First time going to South Africa for two weeks leaving this Saturday (JFK- JNB - HDS), flying SAA and any help etc. will be appreciated.

Can you use a hard shell suitcase or soft side? Are we allowed two, 50 lb checked bags? As far as carry-ons, will it be a purse (weight limitation?) and a carryon (weight limitation?)

In addition, if you have any advice for the connection at JNB it would be sincerely appreciated as well.

Thank you!

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Spoke with a rep at SAA who clarified my questions. Hardside is allowed on the hop to Hoedspruit, 2 50 lb bags, and 18 lbs on carry-ons.

Really kind and efficient! Looking forward to Saturday.
