Places to discover with car hire Cape Town

Table Mountain

Standing on top of Table Mountain is a unique and amazing experience. Leave your car at the bottom of the cableway and catch the cable car up the mountain. Even the trips up and down the cableway are something special! There are paths on the mountaintop leading to a number of vantage points with incredible views.

V&A Waterfront

Visit the V&A Waterfront for a uniquely Capetonian experience. You’ll find exclusive shops and upmarket eateries in the mall, and the outdoor craft market, live music and harbour environment are alluring to even the most seasoned traveller. Have a meal out on the verandah with a harbour view or grab a takeaway to munch on while watching the seals play among the boats. The Two Oceans Aquarium is also well worth a tour.

Cape Town Beaches

Cape Town’s beautiful beaches are quite remarkable. Clear, azure waters, white sandy beaches and a stunning mountain backdrop draw thousands of visitors every year. If you take a drive along the coast you’ll find a beach that suits your requirements. Watersports, swimming, horse riding and even just relaxing in the sun are all catered for.

Chapman’s Peak Drive

Chapman’s Peak Drive is one of the reasons you would want to have a rental car. This famous drive is 9km long and has unbelievable views of the Atlantic coast. From Hout Bay to Noordhoek the road runs along the edge of the mountain, curving 114 times. The stunning route has a number of pull-off points to stop and admire the panoramic views.

Robben Island

Four times a day a ferry departs for Robben Island, formerly a prison but now a political museum. Robben Island was the home of Nelson Mandela for 27 years of his imprisonment, and today hosts fascinating historical and cultural tours of what life on the island was like for political offenders.


Cape Town’s Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden is a well-loved institution. The garden is quite considerable in size, growing right up onto the side of Table Mountain. Most of the garden is wild, but a portion of it is made up of small, educational gardens including:

  • Peninsula Garden
  • Water-wise Garden
  • Fragrance Garden
  • Medicinal Garden
  • The Dell
  • Protea Garden
  • Restio Garden
  • Useful Plants Garden
  • Van Riebeek’s Hedge

Wine routes

Constantia wine route

Take a slow drive along the Constantia Wine Route and absorb the beauty of the valley. The wine estates are open for visitors and have a range of cellar tours, wine tastings, and dining options available. If you like, splash out and stay a night in one of the lovely hotels or treat yourself to a round of golf.

  • The scenic Durbanville and Cape Point Wine Routes are also wonderful for a day out.
