Best time to visit

The summer months of November to March are the best times to visit Cape Town. Although winters in Cape Town are milder than in Europe or North America, for South African standards they are considered to be quite cold and wet.

It starts to warm up around September and by the middle to end of November, the days become a lot longer and summers are considered to be hot, however, this is also when the city becomes very congested and crowded. Which is a great time to plan your wedding for the best weather in South Africa.  This is also over the months where schools host their matric Farwell and need a luxury car hire.

Around the area

The most famous landmark in Cape Town is arguably the towering Table Mountain. Other great tourist attractions include the Southern Peninsula where tourists can drive along a scenic stretch of coastline, from Muizenberg to Fish Hoek gazing at the ocean or watching seals in Simon’s Town. Driving a luxury car throughout these beautiful roads will make you feel like you are living life to the fullest.

There is also a world of culture and wildlife to explore not far from the centre of Cape Town in areas such as Stellenbosch, the West Coast or The Garden Route.

Getting around

Public transport in all the major cities of South Africa is generally not up to scratch with Europe or North America, although Cape Town is generally regarded as one of the better South African cities when it comes to public transport. Largely due to their extensive MyCiTi bus routes and functioning train routes which are still limited by time and area.

If one really wants to see all the sights and sounds of the Mother City, luxury car rental Cape Town really is the only option. With a luxury vehicle, you get the comfort which will be needed to go on longer trips out of the city on some of the world-class roads the city is famous for.

Length of stay

Here at Drive South Africa, we always recommend a two-week bush and beach when visiting South Africa. Start your stay with luxury car rental Cape Town exploring the city’s plethora of sun-kissed beaches and world-class restaurants before flying north to renting a 4x4 in Johannesburg and exploring the wildlife-rich Kruger National Park to spot the Big Five.

What to pack

Cape Town experiences chilly and wet conditions during the winter months so prepare for wet and windy weather. If you decide to visit during this time of year, summer days are hot and long, so naturally, one would be expected to pack beach attire and sunscreen. Summer can also get a few cold spells so prepare for a turn in weather conditions on occasion.
