South Africa is known as one of the world’s best road trip destinations, and reasonably so. With its diverse population, contrasted landscapes, and African wildlife, why wouldn’t you want to explore this beautiful country? We recommend visiting Cape Town or Johannesburg, and if you’re adventurous enough, taking a road trip from one city to the other. While in Cape Town, visit a museum and learn about South Africa’s turbulent history at the Iziko Slave Lodge Museum. It will be a truly powerful experience that you can’t miss. For a bit of a lighter experience, Cape Town has over 70 beaches that you can choose from. Johannesburg, on the other hand, has a different vibe than Cape Town. It is nowhere near the coast but offers plenty to do in and around the city. Africa is known for its paleoanthropology, and just a 50 km drive from Johannesburg is the World Heritage UNESCO site of Cradle of Humankind. There you can explore many limestone caves and learn about the evolution of man. For a close-up wildlife experience, visit Kruger National Park and take a safari. This is one of South Africa’s most popular tourist attractions, as many people try to see the Big 5.
Since South Africa is so big and diverse, the best way to see it is by car. Move Mee’s contactless car rental is situated at 2 locations in South Africa, so you can easily choose between the coast of Cape Town or the inlands of Johannesburg. Skip the queue, unlock your rental car and drive. This will be a trip that you won’t forget.
