To be able to make free calls to South Africa some requirements need to be met. First, you need a smartphone with a good internet connection.

To make free calls to South Africa you need VoIP (Voice over IP) Apps. They do not make a call over the telephone network, but instead use the internet. Telephone lines are being relocated, serviced, and looked after by many telephone companies around the world, so they also guarantee a certain call quality, and therefore calls over the telephone network to South Africa also cost a bit.
If a call is made via the Internet, then this is not controlled and regulated and therefore free, but there is no way to guarantee a certain quality.
When talking on the phone to South Africa over the Internet, spoken words are sent as small data packages over the Internet to South Africa. However, these packages must share the Internet with all the other data packages.
It can happen that a package is lost or delayed. This will result in poor call quality during free calls.
There are two really big drawbacks if you want to call to South Africa for free. First, you can only call people who also have the same app as you have installed. And the second big drawback is that you can only call mobile phones because you can not install an app on a landline.
