There is no doubt that the Cape is a truly beautiful place to be, regardless of the time of year. However, during summer an atmosphere of excitement descends over the Cape as locals welcome hotter days, the festive season and look forward to long days spent on the beach. This is when Cape Town shows its true colours and comes out to play well into the early hours of the morning. The best way to pack everything into your schedule is by going on a road trip, stopping off at different destinations and attractions.
Summer road trips are amongst the most popular holidays in the world. With the hot sun and a sense of adventure, it’s the perfect place to unwind. During these road trips we are reunited with the simple things in life; beautiful scenery and good company. A road trip in the Cape will allow you to enjoy the city, explore the peninsula, relax in the glorious Cape Winelands and kick back in the whale town of Hermanus.
Although summer road trips are popular amongst South Africans visiting the Cape, many foreigners also choose to go on this beautiful adventure. Embarking on their trips as soon as they’ve arrived, many of them use airport car hire. Cape Town welcomes thousands of tourists every year and is well equipped to ensure that every visitor has the holiday of a lifetime. Once visitors have hired their cars, they’ll find it quite easy to navigate their way to their first destination from the Airport. Car hire is also the best way for tourists to get around the Cape as public transport is unreliable and private taxis can be expensive.
By using airport car hire, Cape Town will become an easy place to travel around as you can be as spontaneous as you choose. By staying relaxed and going with the flow, you’ll be able to experience the best of what the cape has to offer whilst really feeling like you’re on holiday. Spend a week or two exploring Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula before making your way to a few nights stay in the Cape Winelands. Lastly, take yourself to Hermanus and spend a couple of days whale watching and exploring the start of the Garden Route.
Roll down your windows and feel the breeze, drive slowly in the sun and sing along to those cheesy summer songs on the radio. Whether you get around in your own vehicle or use airport car hire, Cape Town will offer you the holiday of a life time and the summer road trip you’ve been dreaming of. Enjoy the Cape Winelands, beautiful sights from Cape Point, Hermanus and the Namaqualand flowers along the West Coast; with so many things to see and do who knows where you could end up. Embark on a summer road trip and feel liberated, sun kissed, and discover a beautiful place unlike any other.
