Driving in South Africa

South Africa has a well developed road network but the country is huge, so plan your car hire itinerary carefully so as to avoid fatigue.

  • Any driving licence is accepted for car rental in South Africa as long as it bears a signature and photograph and is printed in English.
  • In South Africa, driving is on the left and seat belts are compulsory.
  • On the main roads and urban motorways the speed limit is generally 75mph, whilst 35mph is usual in built up areas.
  • It's a good idea to carry plenty of cash or a credit card as you will often encounter toll roads when driving long distances.
Bear in mind too that petrol stations can be many miles apart.

Getting around with your Sixt Car Rental in South Africa

Once you have picked up your car hir in South Africa, you are ready to navigate through the scenic landscapes, from snow-capped mountains to sandy beaches. Follow the Limpopo river for 100 miles from Crook's Corner to Pont Drift and discover the typical bush landscape. Here is the renowned Kruger National Park, where you may be lucky enough to see elephants, lions or leopards. Another popular road trip is the Garden Route, a 1065 mile drive along the East Coast with its forests, lagoons and the beaches on the Indian Ocean. Make the most of your car hire with a trip to the iconic Table Mountain, where a cable railway awaits to take you to enjoy the fabulous views from its flat top. A car hire from Sixt leaves you free to experience South Africa's varied scenery, exotic wildlife and culture in comfort and at your own pace.
