Most popular one-way rentals in South Africa

You can’t visit just one part of a country with half a million square miles to see. From Table Mountain to Kruger National Park, South Africa offers so many different climates, landscapes and cultures, and a one-way rental gives you the freedom to explore – the way you want to explore.

Port Elizabeth
Cape Town
750 KM

One-way rentals from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town

With a good climate and plenty of open space in and around the city, you’ll find lots of outdoor activities in Port Elizabeth, from golf courses to wildlife parks and nature reserves. Head west, between the mountains and the ocean, and stop to explore the Wilderness National Park near George, to do some whale-watching in Hermanus, or to enjoy the many beautiful beaches along the south coast of the continent. At the end of your trip, you’ll reach Cape Town, at the foot of the unmistakable Table Mountain. Before you leave, don’t forget to visit the vineyards…

Cape Town
1400 KM

One-way rentals from Cape Town to Johannesburg

Take the cable car up Table Mountain for an unforgettable bird’s-eye view of Cape Town – or take the ferry to Robben Island and see the cell where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years of captivity. When you leave Cape Town, your journey of almost 900 miles takes you right through the heart of South Africa, past vineyards, mountains, plains and nature reserves. In Johannesburg, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to discover its past, from Constitution Hill to the Apartheid Museum and the South African National Museum of Military History.

579 KM

One-way rentals from Durban to Johannesburg

A great route if you’re looking for Africa’s Big 5: lion, leopard, rhino, elephant & buffalo. But before you head inland, why not check out the Dolphin Coast near Ballito, less than an hour north of Durban? Drive northwest and you’ll pass some of South Africa’s greenest landscape before you reach Johannesburg. Once you’re there, you could head up to Hartbeespoort to see the Elephant Sanctuary – or the Bush Babies Monkey Sanctuary.
