Pack ammo separate from guns, in locked metal container. Pack it so that it can be reached easily, for you will have to take it out for inspection. Sixtry (60)rounds per gun would be enough.

Once a temporary import permit is issued, it is valid for that individual only, the required minimum age is 21 years of age. They are issued for a period of no longer than six (6) months.
No more than two hundred (200) rounds of ammunition capable to be fired by the firearm may be imported. It must be packed in a hard container. Application for a temporary import permit will be processed without any costs.
Whenever the holder of the temporary import permit leaves the Republic of South Africa, the firearm in respect of which the permit was issued must accompany the holder of the permit.
