Since Wakanda is a landlocked African country hidden due to their technological advancements and isolated from the rest of the world, and since it was implied that Erik Killmonger, despite having Wakandan heritage, was raised in the United States for most of his life; it doesn't make sense how Killmonger could have perfectly navigated his way to Wakanda by airplane - from South Korea, no less. Wakanda is known to the rest of the world as an isolated poor third world country, only the technologically advanced parts of the country are hidden. The BBC news at the start of the movie mentions Wakanda and the King of Wakanda was killed at the UN in Captain America Civil War. Also, recall that Killmonger spent plenty of time with Ulysses Klaue, who had successfully been in and out of Wakanda, combined with the fact that he knew quite a bit about Wakanda from his father N'Jobu.
