A guide to renting a car in South Africa

Getting there:
It is possible to fly direct to Johannesburg, South Africa from the Australian Cities of Perth and Sydney however a range of international flight options are available from across Australia if you are prepared to take a connecting flight.  

South Africa Car Rental: 
It is possible to rent a car from all of the South African Airports and the city locations, making the transition to your onward journey as easy as possible. The South African Roads in and around the major city locations are pretty good and are well signed. Having your own rental car is by far the best option for exploring this vast and beautiful country.
