South Africa Car Hire and Travel

South Africa car rental is relatively inexpensive and it is probably the best option when it comes to safety and reliability. The roads are mostly well maintained when compared to other African countries and although a 4×4 vehicle is not required you may want to get one from your car rental company anyway because there are some amazing 4×4 trails within the country and its game reserves.

Car hire companies are represented within most major towns and they supply a diverse range of cars from vintage cars to caravans. You can travel from one side of South Africa to the other and just leave your rental car at a S.A car rental branch within the town where you depart. If you are planning to rent a car to drive around you will want to insure your car rental company has an option for unlimited kilometers and if you are visiting in summer you will definitely want a car with air-conditioning.

If you have 3 to 4 days you can visit Cape Town and the surrounding wine-lands in your hired vehicle or drive from Johannesburg to the nearby Kruger National Park – a 4×4 vehicle is best for this trip but any vehicle can be used. If you have a week and a half to two weeks consider traveling in your car hire around Cape Town’s Garden route and stopping at the quaint seaside towns along the way or visit Durban, the Drakensberg mountain range and the Transkei with its breath-taking beaches and rich culture.

S.A is a place of rich beauty and diverse cultures. Nestled within S.A you can stop at the independent countries of Swaziland and Lesotho or even take a trip in your hired car outside of the country to the picturesque Mozambique, arid Namibia or wild Botswana. If you love camping South Africa is the place to be, take your car rental to a South African game reserve or seaside town and enjoy nature at its best. S.A has a laid back and friendly attitude in which tourists are welcomed with open arms – do some research before you visit but come with an open mind and you’re bound to have the best holiday of your life with your South African car hire.
