Car Rental

There are plenty of reasons why you would want to come to South Africa. Either to backpack, enjoy extreme sports or to simply enjoy the sun and nature. You will discover that distances between cities and highlights can be quite far while public transport is not always an option.

You may therefore decide to hire a car while you’re traveling so that you can get around freely from place to place. The road-trip is often half the fun, so to get you on the path we’ve created this list to help you decide where to rent your car.

All these car rental companies listed below are located throughout South Africa so that you could conveniently say pick up in Cape Town and drop off in Durban.

Avis Car Rentals

Thrifty Car Hire

Europcar Hire

First Car Rental

Although, traveling solo may not be what you have in mind. We would recommend that you consider an OVERLAND TOUR which will give you the opportunity to see vast regions of the country along with the best highlights while traveling safely with a guide and driver.

An Overland Tour will take you across Africa in a big custom built truck with like-minded travelers exploring remote regions often inaccessible by regular cars. So if this sounds more appealing than struggling to get your google maps to work and timing your fuel tank refills than check out these overland tour options.
