Buenos Aires... I know that Malaysian Airlines flies twice a week from BA to Capetown... I'm sure if you do some searching here you'll find some sources. Santiago is on the other side of the continent and shipping from there will likely be more expensive or take longer... or both.

good luck

Ozhanu, if you click on the link above it'll take you to the shipping page. Under "country to country" just enter Argentina to South Africa. I tried to post the exact link but couldn't, I'm terrible with this computer stuff. Perhaps someone else might do it. Again, good luck. H.
