Connecting You and Your Pets
to a World of Safe Travel

Pets Travel is South Africa’s leading animal transport
and relocation company.

We’ve been in the pet transportation business for over 50 years and have developed an approach that enables us to safely transport your beloved pets in style. 

Our mission is to ensure your pet’s safety and comfort, so you can rest assured that they are secure and relaxed during travel.

We’ve mastered the art of pet transportation and relocation for domestic and international moves. You can trust the quality of our services provided by highly skilled and well-trained employees, including animal behaviourists who can minimise your pet’s anxiety or distress during the relocation process. 

Our aim is to transport your pets in a simple, loving, and stress-free environment. We use tried and tested handling that guarantees a gentle yet secure adventure for your pets while they travel to their new home.  

WE ARE YOUR SOUTH AFRICAN AND INTERNATIONAL PET CONNECTION

 

Pets Travel is not just an ordinary pet transport and relocation agency. We provide calm, caring, and safe transport for your pets. We honour the loving relationship you have with your animals and ensure our transportation services emphasise comfort and peace of mind for you and your pets.

Every member of our team goes above and beyond to ensure your pet’s needs always come first. Our services are geared to make your pet’s needs our priority on domestic and international trips.

Pets Travel has the expertise to create a perfect plan to ensure your pets have a stress-free travel experience. Our expert behaviourists and handlers assess your pet’s personality and temperament so your animal travels in a manner designed to meet their specific safety and comfort requirements. 

For example, we’ll transport curious pets in a crate with plenty of openings so they can see their adventure unfold. However, we’ll design a comfortable space for anxious animals that provides a sense of security during transportation. 

All our crate-making and export services are made to IATA (International Air Transport Association) specifications. Among other things, the International Air Transport Association regulates the transportation of special cargo, including live animals. In accordance with IATA regulations, our crates are designed to improve the welfare of animals during air transport.  

 

PET TRANSPORTATION FOR INTERNATIONAL AND DOMESTIC ANIMAL TRAVEL VIA ROAD OR AIR INCLUDE:

 

Veterinary expertise when assisting with vet export docs is provided by veterinarians from our agency’s network of pet industry stakeholders. Furthermore, our veterinary services include sign-off on essential pet travel documents and certificates.

Custom-designed crates based on your pet’s size, weight, and personality. Crates for transportation are made from specially heat-treated wood to prevent pests and optimise comfort on the road, either in South Africa or abroad.
We provide on-site kennelling for pets to stay while you manage essential travel arrangements, take care of last-minute moving details, or simply go on holiday and want your pet to stay in a place that provides all the care and comforts of home.

Customised animal transport designed for comfort, safety, and peace of mind. Our transport vans are adapted to ensure absolute safety in a temperature-controlled environment. Your animals can have a stress-free travel experience and you can rest assured that your beloved pet is in good hands while moving from location to destination.
Fully qualified and highly trained animal behaviourists, pet handlers, and consultants help you plan your animal’s travel arrangements, including air or road transportation, nutrition, hydration, and medication needs. 

We even provide grooming services that make pets look good and help them relax to better enjoy their local or international journey.

Excellent service! Our pets are our children and I was so pleased to see how professional the service was at Pets Travel. Our beautiful pup arrived safely and happy from Joburg to Cookhouse. You were kind enough to send photos throughout the process. Will always use you. Thank you for getting our little boy home! 🥰

Pet Relocation from South Africa to the Netherlands: Phenomenal service received from Simone and the team from Pets Travel, making this a smooth, stress-free journey for everyone involved. Whiskey, our Dachshund, was very much missed and an essential part of the family. Simone was there every step of the way, making sure we did what was needed to get him safely to his new home. I could see absolute love and care for pets and was very grateful for each picture taken and shared, showing his safety is everyone's highest priority.
