Just picking up a motorhome or RV rental and seeing where the highways take you is undoubtedly the best way to enjoy South Africa. Although you may have decided on an itinerary, this is likely to change, as Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and all the other towns and cities take you out of your comfort zone and into a world you will never have seen before. Sporting events such as the rugby and football World Cups have opened up this region to tourism like never before, and RV rental is on the increase. Get in early with Motorhome Republic and secure yourself an African adventure in a South Africa campervan hire.

So much to see and do in South Africa
Unsurprisingly, South Africa sits at the bottom of the continent, with a stunning, extensive coastline, meaning the beaches are well worth a trip in your hired campervan. But that’s the beauty of Africa – there is contrast everywhere, from sandy climes to mountains, lakes, rivers and so much more.
From Safari to 4x4 hire
One of the major attractions in South Africa is of course the opportunity to go on safari and visit the numerous game reserves. Although your campervan hire or RV rental probably won’t take you there, just park up and jump onboard one of the many tours on offer. The best wildlife options include:
Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park located 280km north of Durban. This is the only place where you will find the big five game animals.
Addo Elephant National Park is close to Port Elizabeth with game drives and plenty of other wildlife, aside from the beautiful elephants.
Kruger National Park is perhaps the most famous name in South African safari, covering 20,000 square kilometres in the north-east of the country. Demand is always high for trips to Kruger and the 4x4 vehicles certainly get an extensive workout.
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park takes you to the stunning environs of the Kalahari, where the meerkats and cheetahs roam the desert.
Cities of the future: Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg
The modern South Africa is built for the international motorhome traveller, and there are numerous cities and towns to fall in love with. Competition in the tourism industry means that it’s easier than ever to pick up a cheap, cost-effective campervan rental, without compromising on quality and luxury. Grab a motorhome hire, get out of the country and into the city.
One of Cape Town’s major attractions is Table Mountain, which you can ascend via Cableway. Robben Island is perhaps one of the most famous islands in the world, where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated, while the Cape of Good Hope and Lion’s Head are just a couple of wonderful mountainous ranges. Check how much access you can get in your RV rental.
Durban is a busy destination with a strong manufacturing background and a strong sporting feel. Kings Park Stadium and Kingsmead Cricket Ground will always have something going on, while Marine World and Umgeni River Bird Park maintain the wildlife theme. Johannesburg offers a fascinating look into the history of the country with the Apartheid Museum, while the SAB World of Beer and Johannesburg Art Gallery offer a real variety of days out. You’re in South Africa so park up the motorhome hire and get exploring.
So no matter where you’re planning to go for your South Africa holiday, let us deliver your motorhome hire for a lifetime of memories. Happy camping!
