How do I make a telephone call to South Africa?


It’s easy to make a telephone call to South Africa from the UK, and there are a few different ways to do it. The most popular way is to use a calling card, which you can buy from most newsagents and convenience stores. Calling cards usually have a PIN number on them, which you’ll need to enter when prompted by the automated system.

Another way to make a call is to use a VoIP (Voice over IP) service like Skype or Viber. These services allow you to make calls over the internet, and are often cheaper than using a calling card.

If you need to make an emergency call, you can dial 999 from any phone in the UK and ask to be connected to the South African emergency services.

It is very easy to make a telephone call to South Africa from the UK. All you need is a telephone and an international calling card. You can purchase an international calling card from most high street shops or online.

If you are using a mobile phone, you may need to replace the 00 with a +. For example, +27 xx xxxx xxxx.
