How long does it take to arrive in SA? And are there a limit for how much you can spend before you have to pay taxes and so on?

I'm not sure if I'll be of much help, but I can share my experience. I ordered my kindle online and it was scheduled to take 4 weeks. It ended up taking 6 or 7 (not quite sure) due to delays in the shipping process.

There will definitely be tax imposed limits, but it all depends on what you're importing I guess. I'm sure it will be different for wine than for t-shirts, for example.

I'm not importing things, I'd like to travel around the Country. Specially Johannesburg, Kruger and Cape Town.
