With the world renowned Kruger National Park, Sun City Resort and the incredible views of
the Panorama Route all within a couple hours car drive of each other there is no shortage of
things to see and do in Gauteng. Car hire or camper van rental, then seems like the obvious
option for all travelers touring the wonderful capital province of South Africa on holiday. It
not only allows you the flexibility and independence to determine your own tour but travel
at your pace and absorb as much of South Africa as you can.
Whether you hire a car from one of the reputable Gauteng Car Rental Companies, Car Hire
Agents or perhaps decide to use public transport to get around, here is a sample of what
Gauteng Province has to offer its visitors to wet your appetite.
The enormous metropolis of Johannesburg is the biggest city in South Africa and is flavored
with our vibrant and diverse cultures as well as South Africa’s popular street culture. The
City is also renowned for its incredibly tumultuous political and historical anti-apartheid
tradition. Visitors should take advantage of the many interesting museums, historical
monuments and heritage sites which abound throughout the city.
Kruger National Park
Five hours drive from Johannesburg is South Africa’s premier National Conservation
Reserve, the Kruger National Park. Spanning over 350 km, the Kruger National Park is a
nature lover’s paradise and has one of the most diverse and spectacular collections of
wildlife, bird species and flora to be found in South Africa. There are plenty of car friendly
routes and trails to explore throughout the park as well as the chance to hop onto some
great game drives or enjoy a huge variety of adventure activities.
The natural splendor and grand scenery of Mpumalanga’s Panorama route is the ideal
setting for any Gauteng car hire, self-drive or camping holiday in South Africa. The route
includes the enchanting historical town of Pilgrim’s Rest, God’s Window Viewpoint as well
as the quirky natural phenomena of the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve. There is plenty
to experience, explore and savor in these main attractions as well as some great finds along
Sun City Resort
Just outside of Johannesburg, is the spectacular Sun City Hotel and Resort and its many
fantastic attractions, golf courses and accommodation. With the man-made Valley of the
Waves, and a number of spas and trips to nearby game reserves Sun City
Resort is the ideal getaway for those travelers looking for a pampered and catered retreat
or a more luxurious South African holiday experience.
There are plenty more great attractions and activities for you to take advantage of in and
around Gauteng. Car hire is probably the best way to experience the province as public
transport in town can often be quite unreliable and unsafe.
Renting a car in Gauteng is a no hassle, pain-free process Cape and can be completed both
online and/or telephonically depending on the car rental operator you choose. Once you
have confirmed your booking, your car will be ready and waiting for you to collect and
begin your idyllic Gauteng holiday blazing a trail or retreating to a more luxurious resort.
But be warned the summer time is peak travel season with huge influxes of both local and
international tourists so be sure to budget time to explore the various Gauteng car hire
options and book your rental early to avoid frustration.
