President Jacob Zuma heads for Libya next week.
He will join the presidents of Mauritania, Congo, Mali and Uganda in a committee appointed by the African Union to mediate in the worsening conflict in Tripoli.
Retreating rebel forces in Libya have complained about the lack of concrete support from foreign governments.
They fear further assaults from Libyan army units and pro-regime forces.
Observers say the conflict in Libya has already taken on the character of a civil war.
