Morning after pill

I have read on the web about a new morning after pill, called Ella. The advantage being that it can be taken up to five days after intercourse. Is this medication available in South Africa? Is it for sale over the counter? Does it have the same name in South Africa?

Alternatively, what is the best over the counter morning after pill available in South Africa?
