Airport Car Rental
Get your rental car at Cape Town Airport! Then drive into Cape Town to explore the city’s center and its many and diverse neighborhoods. See the colorful buildings in Bo Kaap and try delicious spicy food in the Malay quarter. Park next to Table Mountain and take the cable car for a mountaintop aerial view of the city! Take a ferry to Robben Island to visit the former prison and learn more about the country’s tragic but fascinating history. This is where South African leader Nelson Mandela spent most of the years he served behind bars.
Drive to the Cape of Good Hope—famous for its penguins—where you might encounter antelopes, zebras, ostriches, and baboons, too. If you’re really brave, you can even dive with the sharks! Cape Town has many beautiful beaches, all within easy reach by car, with countless opportunities to do watersports.
Cape Town is a great destination, but the surrounding region has even more to offer. So why not choose a longer term car rental? Then you can explore the rest of South Africa or venture into neighboring Namibia or Botswana. You can even pick up your rental car at Cape Town Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your Cape Town adventure now!
Cape Town Airport was greatly expanded for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. It is now the third busiest airport in Africa.
