You’ll need to dial the international access code, which is 00, followed by the country code for South Africa, which is 27. Then you’ll dial the area code, followed by the seven-digit local phone number. For example, if you were calling the Vodacom customer service line in Johannesburg, you would dial 00 27 11 653-2222.

Remember to take into account the time difference if you’re calling a mobile phone, and be sure to use the correct area code for the city or town you’re trying to reach.

In order to call South Africa from a UK landline, you will need to dial the following sequence of numbers: 00 27, followed by the South African country code (27), and then the area code and local number.
