Local Reptile Shipping

Postby ewertb » Tue May 22, 2018 4:20 pm


Last year I've successfully hatched my 1st ever ball pythons. I've put the little ones up for sale but have some concerns on managing long distance shipping should I get interested parties from far of towns/other provinces. Are there companies in SA that specialize in shipping live animals around SA? My google search had some that seems to do international relocations but nothing specifically for local?

I have shipped from Durban to Cape Town using Bidvest Air Cargo. You could try your local airport and see if any of the smaller airlines allow the shipping of 'pets'.

BirAir pet lounge is your best bet, for local shipping, but this is only from airport to airport, where someone will have to go a pick it up. As long as permits are in order
(where necessary) and the animals are boxed correctly then you should not have any issues...
SAA cargo offer a similar service, but are more expensive and not as good IMO.

Unfortunately there are no courier services for pets/animals in SA
