Combine your holiday with volunteering in Cape Town by hiring a car and exploring the beautiful scenery and memorable tourist activities that the Western Cape has to offer.
Volunteering in Cape Town
Why not combine your holiday with your volunteer programme? While you get to see many historic sites and natural wonders while volunteering in Cape Town, by combining your volunteering and holiday, you will have enough time to see everything South Africa has to offer. Explore on your own and expand your visit to the rolling hills of the Boland region and the beautiful mountains of the Klein Karoo. Make sure you miss nothing!
Transport in South Africa
While your transport will be taken care of when you volunteer, setting out on your own will require that you arrange your own mode of transport. While South Africa has an adequate public transport system in the big cities, a hired car will be more beneficial for those who wish to travel through SA on their own. South Africans drive on the left side of the road and speed limits are indicated in Kilometres next to the side of the road with 120km/h being the fastest speed on national highways.
Hiring a car is easy!
Cape Town has a whole host of car hire agencies all conveniently situated near the Cape Town International airport. Not only are they competitively priced, but you’ll always find a vehicle that suits your needs. From a small motorcar to an off-road SUV, you’re guaranteed a vehicle any time night and day. All you need is an international driver’s license and a road map and you’re ready to explore!
Where can I drive to?
