Here at Drive South Africa, we have many great options for those looking to achieve this in order to see all the best parts of Cape Town in luxurious style. Luxury car hire Cape Town is here for you.

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 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 of longer and summers are considered to be hot, however this is also when the city becomes very congested and crowded.

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.

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. Luxury car hire Cape Town will make sure you get to see all the iconic areas in the mother city easily, efficiently and in style.

Length of stay

Here at Drive South Africa, we always recommend a two-week bush and beach when visiting South Africa.

Luxury Car Hire Cape Town allows you to explore the city’s plethora of sun kissed beaches and world-class restaurants before flying north to hire 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.

Where to stay 

City Bowl area and Gardens

This is the hub of nightlife and entertainment and this is for the traveller who wishes to be right in the thick of the action. From the iconic Long Street to trendy Kloof, the town area of Cape Town really does have it all when it comes to live music, upmarket bars and restaurants and a world of accommodation facilities to choose from.

Southern Peninsula (Kalk Bay, Muizenberg, Simon’s Town, Fish Hoek)

This is an area which is definitely for the traveler wishing to get a bit of peace, tranquility and ocean views whilst still being within close proximity to the city.
