Hire a car and see more of South Africa   

by Andrew Regan

As winter looms on the horizon, the long haul holiday market springs into life offering sun and heat in the southern hemisphere. From the cosmopolitan offerings of Cape Town and Johannesburg to the wilderness of the Kruger National Park to the rugged Atlantic and Indian Ocean coastlines, South Africa has plenty to offer the holiday maker this winter.

South Africa is vast, and traversing the distances between the major attractions is most easily accomplished by taking advantage of the internal flights available, but perhaps the more rewarding experience can be derived by hiring a car as it helps to convey a deeper understanding of what the country has to offer. Car rental firms have a presence in most of the major cities and car hire in South Africa is relatively cheap.

Cape Town is the first port of call for many flights to South Africa and the city greets all with a bustling, cosmopolitan atmosphere. The city skyline is dominated by the omnipotent table mountain and the city retains a bustling café culture and impressive seafood at the harbour area. Moving out of Cape Town and along the Garden Route - touted as Africa's answer to Route 66 - is a series of beautiful coastal towns of South Africa's Indian Ocean coastline.

Durban is a surfer's mecca and offers a laid-back alternative to the bustle of Cape Town and Johannesburg. For the more adventurous, Durban can be used as a base for exploring South Africa's most fearsome ocean predator, the Great White Shark. For land based predators, there can be only one place to visit - Kruger National Park. South Africa's top attraction offers the unique opportunity to view outstanding wildlife on safari and the chance to spot the big five in their natural habitat for a unique and rewarding experience.

Travelling by road through the Transvaal provides a rewarding experience allowing visitors to see more of the real South Africa by car, taking in Johannesburg and Pretoria en-route. These cities offer a greater glimpse into South African life and can act as a good base for booking and exploring a Kruger safari.
