Fed Ex seems to be the most common "airplanes" in foreign Air Ports.

Agreed. And if you're worried about it getting lost just insure it. It's not that expensive.

Most likely US Post office

However with a visit to the appropriate websites for USPS, FedEx, and UPS you can estimate the cost for each including insurance

Anything except Men in brown, when working in Africa, nothing but problem with that screwed outfit. Actually if you want to loose something for good use them.

DHL has given good service for me lately with stuff from other countries. Been too long since I sent anything to SA. A mailer-sized envelope though. USPS may be the ticket. I subscribed to a magazine from SA years ago and got it through the mail every month in timely fashion, but you're going the other direction.

I haven't been around here lately but nobody from SA on the board? Francois ever drop in anymore????
