You do not need a visa to enter Vietnam for less than 45 days, using a UK passport, either flying from the UK or entering overland from Cambodia.

@GOVENDER, It is currently not possible to obtain an approval letter if you are not going on an organized tour with a local tour operator. However, the new e-visa policy will soon be in effect, which will be available to all countries. If you are not traveling soon, please wait for the new visa policy updates.

@Jason Williams, South African nationals are currently not on the list of e-visa eligible countries, however, you can apply for a pre-approved visa letter and then pick up your visa at the embassy of Vietnam in Pretoria before you go.
