As a rent-to-own a car company in South Africa, Earn-a-Car knows of a few great places to drive to this summer:

  • Garden Route

The Garden Route is a scenic 200 km stretch between Mossel Bay in the Western Cape and the Storms River Mouth on the Western fringes of the Eastern Cape. You will pass through beautiful forests, pristine beaches, as well as lagoons and lakes. There are many outdoor activities on offer throughout the Garden Route. Whether you are interested in hiking, windsurfing, mountain climbing, or mountain biking and if you want to get your adrenalin pumping, try out the highest bunjee jump in the world, located at Storms River Bridge.

  • Mokopane

The Waterberg region in Limpopo is only a couple hours’ drive from Gauteng, making it a quick and convenient getaway for city dwellers who do not want to travel too far. One of the best reasons to visit the Mokopane region, other than the area’s soaring mountain peaks and beautiful plains where you and your family can hike through the plunging river valleys and sandstone rock formations to see Africa’s true Eden.

  • Wild Coast

The Wild Coast runs from East London to the border of Kwa-Zulu Natal. You will see the most picturesque jagged coastline, rolling hills and lush forests. The hillsides are dotted with small rondavels and pastoral farming plots, making it one of the most scenic and rural parts of the country.

  • The Panorama Route

If you are visiting the Kruger National Park, then you should definitely take a short detour to Mpumalanga’s main attraction, the Panorama Route. You will be able to travel along the highest tar road in South Africa and see amazing views of valleys and canyons on the way.
