It is possible to do polygon searches in South Africa, with a data set you upload to the Data Manager. MapQuest does not provide South African data in the search APIs, except the internationalpois table.

Upload the data through the Data Manager API. The format depends on how you set up your table. The data can come from anywhere. Once it is in the Data Manager, the search/v2 API can search that data.
