Luxury Car Rental in Cape Town, South Africa 

Trendy Cape Town is possibly the best place to start your South African holiday. Spectacular scenery, white sand beaches, culture, and nightlife all add up to make this city an excellent destination. See the city in style with a luxury rented car. Drive South Africa lets you easily compare luxury rental cars and get the lowest prices on your luxury car rental.

Cape Town: Table Mountain and V&A Waterfront

When’s the best time to visit Cape Town?

The best time to tour Cape Town in a luxury rental car is in the summer months from November to March. It’s also the best time to have a wedding in Cape Town. Winter is wet and windy and isn’t ideal for cruising around with the top down!

Getting Around Cape Town

Cape Town has one of the better public transport systems in South Africa. The popular MyCiTi bus routes are a great way to get around and see most of what the city and its surrounding areas has to offer. Still, nothing can beat cruising around the city in a luxury rented car because you can pick and choose your destinations and travel at your own pace on a well-maintained road network.

How long should you stay in Cape Town?

You could see most of what the city has to offer in about a week, but at Drive South Africa we always recommend a two-week bush and beach holiday. Start your holiday in Cape Town with a luxury rented car to take in the beautiful beaches and excellent restaurants, then fly to Johannesburg and hire a 4×4 for a week in one of the region’s wildlife areas – you’ll easily be able to spot the Big Five at the world-famous Kruger National Park.

What to pack for Cape Town

Summer in Cape Town is hot, so pack beach gear and sunscreen. Winters are cold and wet, so pack layers and a good rainproof jacket and umbrella.
