Against the backdrop of the imposing Table Mountain and the green-blue tint of False Bay, the busy city of Cape Town sprawls out like an intricate web. It’s easy to lose yourself in the music and culture of the de facto capital of South Africa. However, when you’re ready to explore beyond “The Mother City,” your Cape Town car rental makes it easy to get from the waterfront to the Winelands and back again.
Flights to Cape Town International Airport (CPT) land 12 miles east of the city center, and you’ll have easy access to rental cars in Cape Town. Pick up your ride and get on the road to South Africa’s wine country. Drive 30 miles east through majestic mountains and classic Cape Dutch farms to the oak-lined streets of Stellenbosch. Tour its cobblestone avenues in search of painted ceramics, hand-carved figurines, and other fun keepsakes. There’s no rush in this easygoing province, but soon enough you’ll be eager for the main event—wine, of course! Stellenbosch has become one of the most popular areas to swirl and swish. From sipping syrah in the cellar with the winemaker himself to all-out tours and fancy restaurants, get ready for an oenophile’s paradise. Top it all off with delicious traditional vetkoek pastries and nonalcoholic amasi milk before heading back to your Cape Town hotel.
You’ll have “geen sorge” (no worries) when you search Travelocity’s cheap car rentals in Cape Town. From luxury sedans to vans for the whole family, we’ve got you covered. Plus, you won’t need to spend all your rand—bundle and save when you book your hotel and airfare together, and you’ll be able to afford all the rooibos tea and wooden giraffes your heart desires.
