Bought this here in TZ. Ex missionary or some such. I want to export it to SA, does anyone know the rules for the import?
Cheers

I looked for one (actually 2) of these in 1991 when we started planning a trans-Africa trip....

My suggestion would be to contact a Freight Forwarding agent to start the process! Suspect you may have to pay import duty, but I am pretty sure it will be worth it!

Proving ownership longer than the required period (2 years??) might be difficult. There may be an African way of getting round this.

Otherwise, keep the transaction value as low as possible to cut down on any duty and vat.

Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!
