Default International Parcels South Africa

Hello,
I have been posting more in the new zealand threads as I am moving there in November.

My parents are travelling to South Africa on holiday in March 2018.

My mum's question is, how can she send a parcel from South Africa to New Zealand.
Is there a courier people can recommend?
Thanks
Stephen

I've never had to use a courier between SA and NZ, but on various occasions, I've had to send from Chile to Mauritius and I've used DHL, with a great service, so no doubt they would offer you the same on the route you want.

Anyone but the post office! DHL are about the best - but it won't be cheap. Check first as some stuff is banned from being transported by courier, and if you're paying cash (so not a DHL account holder) they'll need to inspect the contents before it goes - so don't wrap any presents.
