We hired a small Toyota car and were slightly concerned that it might not suit the dirt roads in South Africa. However, the model we were given (Vitz) had a raised suspension as standard, offering more than adequate clearance for uneven surfaces.

We drove from Johannesburg to Malelane and Kruger National Park where we had a fantastic time and it was very convenient to be able to drop off the rental vehicle at Hoedspruit airport on our return. A small SUV proved to be an excellent vehicle for travelling in Kruger.

We love South Africa. We visited the historical town of Carltonville which is deep mining and dates back many years. There are lovely B&B to stay in and loads of places to visit in and around as well. Thanks First Car for a very lovely car that also Allowed us to visit these places. Martin and Cindy (04.22)

Beautiful country and well worth hiring a car to explore. Driving and road conditions were pretty good, no major problems. Police at the airport are problematic - they wait at the junction into the car hire drop-off lane and stop drivers, seemingly to fish for bribes from people who are tight for time with planes to catch.
