Cape Town in South Africa is one of the best cities on the continent to get a rental car and hit the open road. This is because infrastructure is generally good and many drives between destinations – like Table Mountain, Cape Point and the Cape Winelands – are incredibly scenic. Add time in a premier Big 5 game reserve, and you have a trip that is ideal for first-timers, families and those who want a personalised schedule.
Your first stop is Cape Town for four nights before you head to the Winelands for two evenings. This itinerary rounds out with three nights at Welgevonden Game Reserve. You could also start with your safari and end in the Mother City, especially if you like to shop!
