how to get back from south africa


There are a few things to keep in mind when returning from South Africa. First, make sure you have all the necessary documents in order, including your passport and visa. Second, check with your airline or travel agent to see if there are any special requirements for returning to the UK from South Africa. Finally, be prepared for a bit of culture shock, as South Africa is a very different place from the UK.

Assuming you have all your documents in order, the best way to return to the UK from South Africa is by air. There are a number of direct flights from Johannesburg to London, as well as from Cape Town to London. If you’re flying from Durban, you’ll need to change planes in Johannesburg. The flight time from Johannesburg to London is about 11 hours, and from Cape Town it’s about 9 hours.

When you arrive in London, you’ll need to clear customs and immigration. The process is usually pretty straightforward, but it can be a bit daunting if you’ve never done it before. The best thing to do is to follow the instructions of the customs and immigration officers, and to be patient.

Once you’ve cleared customs and immigration, you’ll be able to collect your luggage and head to the exit. If you’re returning to the UK on a direct flight, you’ll be able to go straight to the exit. If you’re changing planes in Johannesburg, you’ll need to go to the transfer desk first.

Once you’re outside the airport, you’ll probably want to take a taxi or a bus into the city. If you’re taking a taxi, make sure you use a reputable company, and agree on a price before getting in the car. If you’re taking a bus, the best thing to do is to buy a ticket in advance.

Once you’re in the city, you’ll probably want to head to your hotel or accommodation. If you’re staying in a hotel, you’ll need to check in and get your key. If you’re staying in self-catering accommodation, you’ll need to find your way to your apartment or house.

Once you’re settled in, you’ll probably want to start exploring. South Africa is a very different place from the UK, so be prepared for a bit of culture shock. The best way to experience South Africa is to get out and about, and to talk to people. South Africans are generally very friendly and welcoming, so don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation.

If you’re looking for things to do, there are plenty of options. You could visit some of the country’s many museums and galleries, go on a safari, or take a hike in one of the many national parks. Or, you could simply spend some time relaxing on one of the many beaches.

When you’re ready to leave South Africa, you’ll need to check out of your accommodation and head to the airport. The best way to get to the airport is by taxi or bus. If you’re taking a taxi, make sure you agree on a price before getting in the car. If you’re taking a bus, the best thing to do is to buy a ticket in advance.

Once you’re at the airport, you’ll need to check in and go through security. Again, the process is usually pretty straightforward, but it can be a bit daunting if you’ve never done it before. The best thing to do is to follow the instructions of the security staff, and to be patient.

Once you’re through security, you’ll be able to board your plane and start your journey back to the UK.

The best way to get back from South Africa is to fly. There are many flights that go from South Africa to the UK every day, so you should be able to find a flight that suits your schedule. The flight from South Africa to the UK usually takes around 10 hours, so it is important to make sure that you have enough time to rest and relax during the flight.
