I have a contact who can secure your boxes with UPS,door to door service,24/7 tracking the whole nine yards.Savings of more than 50% off the public rate pretty much standard.E mail if interested.

I agree with Mike - the problem with La Poste is local deliveries and inbound stuff from abroad.  Sending is usually OK.  I also try not to, but it is not as bad as you might think.

There are a lot of freight and forwarding agencies who should be able to send stuff to SA for you.  Just make sure they quote you for surface rather than air though (unless it's urgent) as the difference is pretty high.

We've had no problems using La Poste to send stuff ZA-wards.
