I can't say that I have been following their demise with great enthusiasm, but I can tell you that

A300 B2 ZS-SDC Scrapped at Daytona Beach, Florida
A300 B4 ZS-SDE Exported to Turkey, now with Onur Air TC-ONT

To add to Starship's list:

A300C4-203(F) ZS-SDG "Kudu" - sold to MNG Cargo of Turkey as TC-MND (3rd qtr 2000).

If you look in the left background of this shot (taken on Feb 17) you'll see two more retired A300s with their SAA colours painted over.

To the right of them you can also see four former Sun Air DC9s (ZS-NRA/D) parked outside the Denel Aviation hangars.
