Many reputable companies offer shipping and air freight services to South Africa. Cost usually depends on volume of goods, as well as the length of time involved in shipping.  Some companies also offer storage services and insurance on goods.

Air freight services are more expensive, although quicker. South African Airways, for example, has a cargo division which is able to transfer anything from motor vehicles to livestock across the country.

Shipping pets to South Africa

Shipping pets to South Africa requires a Veterinary Health Certificate, or equivalent, and may involve a quarantine period of three to six months. Note that the postal service is unreliable and packages must be insured against theft and delay.
