Whether you're looking for an active break or just want to kick back and enjoy the sunshine on a relaxing holiday, you'll find car hire gives you the freedom to discover a holiday in South Africa that's unique to you.

South Africa is situated in the southern tip of the African continent. The country boasts a vast and contrasting landscape, which offers plenty of scope for car hire touring. South Africa comprises nine provinces-Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, Northern Cape and the Western Cape. Generally speaking, the country has a temperate climate, with warm summers and cold winters. However, temperature extremes do exist. The Western Cape benefits from a Mediterranean Climate, with the cooling Benguela Current on the Atlantic, while the east coast swelters in sub tropical temperatures and high humidity, refreshed only by the warm Indian Ocean lapping its shores.

Some of Africa's most lively and culturally diverse cities are to be found in South Africa. Cape Town is renowned for its rich multi-cultural heritage and dazzling scenery, which includes the impressive Table Mountain and attractive Cape Winelands routes, while the sprawling metropolis of Johannesburg, where skyscrapers and shantytowns sit side-by-side exemplifies the harsh class distinctions of modern materialism. The melting pot that is Durban is definitely worth a visit, if only to experience the fascinating mix of Zulu and Indian cultures. Meanwhile, sunny Port Elizabeth boasts a pretty beachfront that plays host to a range of exciting festivals and international water sports events.

With a landscape like South Africa's, action and adventure is never far away. A rental car makes it easy to take advantage of everything this country has to offer in terms of exciting outdoor pursuits. Shark diving off Gansbaai, whale watching off Walker Bay and bungee jumping off the famous Bloukrans River Bridge are all activities that are guaranteed to impress outdoors types and daredevils alike. Just driving through the South African wilderness you're sure to be struck by its stark beauty. A journey through the stunning 'Garden Route' is recommended. The route runs from the southern coastline between Mossel Bay and Tstsikamma National Park and takes in a number of natural and historical attractions such as the world-famous Cango Caves, picturesque Outeniqua Mountains as well as the vibrant city of George.
