How We Post Books Around the Globe

Select Books posts Africana books to the four corners of South Africa... and the world!

All books are sent within 24 hours of order confirmation. We require a street address & contact telephone number in order to despatch your order.

Parcels sent to addresses in South Africa are despatched via The Courier Guy delivery company. Shipping typically takes 24 hours (unless you live in a remote part of the Republic). As soon as the parcel is collected from the shop, tracking details are supplied so you can follow its progress.

Overseas parcels are sent via an international courier company. Individual quotes are provided upon request.
