As the city is the origin of three national roads you can easily embark on excursion with your rental vehicle. From the city center you have access to the NI, which runs towards destinations in the interior, and the N2 which will link you to cities on the coast. If renting a car from our Stellenbosch branch the R44 will be your route for scenic drives to places like Gordon's Bay and further south along the coast.

Sixt Tips back to top

Cape Town lies at the very tip of South Africa where the waters of the Pacific and Indian Oceans meet. This magnificent city is dominated by Table Mountain and it is well worth taking a drive up to the cable station to enjoy the incredible views. See seals and sea lions basking in the sun at the waterfront as you drive the coastal road from Lagoon Beach to Camp's Bay or explore the shops and stores at the V&A Waterfront. You can drive up to Devil's Peak to see the Rhodes memorial and if you stop for a coffee at the café you might spot wildebeest or zebra on the trails below. You may like to take a look around the Castle of Good Hope, a central landmark that is the oldest building in South Africa. Be sure to visit Bo-Kaap, a lively area known for its colorful houses and vibrant street life.
