Calling South Africa from other countries

If you wish to give your South African telephone number to someone in another country, make sure you add the South African country code, which is always +27; the area code; your own number Example: Your number is 887 2431. The dialling code

for South Africa is +27 and for Pretoria is 012. The number you therefore give is +27 (0)12 887 2431. The + sign represents the international access code for the calling country.
