The Quest 3 will not available in South Africa for a while yet. We can buy the Quest 2 here locally but it cost the equivalent of about $568 here. I ordered my Quest 3 through Meta but they don't deliver here to South Africa so, luckily, the service myus.com exists, I got it sent there. The Quest 3 costs $499, then I need to add shipping to South Africa from myus.com, which is about another $80 or so, then I need to pay import duty of about $ 208.
Just thought I would post that here out of reference.
