South Africa Visa Help

The G Adventures Watering Hole - Travel Forum • View forum - Africa and Middle East - wateringhole.gadventures.com
Hi all,

I'm set to head off on the Southern Africa Encompassed tour. I've got my tourist visa for South Africa and whilst I asked for two-entries it has returned as a single-entry visa only. As my tour leaves SA in to Botswana and Zimbabwe and finishes back in South Africa I'm worried that I may not be let back in to SA for my return flight!

First question(s) - Does anyone know what 'single-entry' entails? Does it exclude land border crossings? Would I be able to get a visa at the ZIM-SA border?

Second question, when I submitted my application and had my appointment for my SA tourist visa I submitted 'provisional' flight and accomodation bookings - this was specified in the visa requirements. I've now sourced cheaper flights and changed my accomodation bookings (so I can include Cape Town). So I now land in SA a few days earlier then when I stated on my application but the visa itself only says 'entry on or before dd/mm/yy', just checking if I'm ok to enter so as long as it's before the date stated on my visa?

I'm on a New Zealand passport, flying back to London.

Thanks all!
