Do South Africans need a visa to travel to Turkey for tourism?

edited September 2010 in Visa and Passport
Hi, I am a South African, residing in the UK on a residence permit. I am married to a UK Citizen. We have a packaged holiday planned to Turkey for 12 days in novermber 2010. I have heard/read so many different things regarding obtaining a visa to travel to Turkey. Please can you tell me if I can obtain a visa at the Turkish Border gates when I fly? Or do I need to apply from the Turkish Consulate in London? The website says I can obtain a tourist visa for 30 days from the gates. I just want to make 100% sure this is correct. I do not want to arrive in Turkey and get turned away.
