Camper van hire in South AfricaIf you are looking for a camper van hire in South Africa, then HolidayCampervan is happy to help you with a range of campervans for hire to suit your South african holiday requirements.

South Africa is based on the southern point of the large mysterious continent of Africa, with coastlines to both the Indian and the South Atlantic oceans. This geographical fusion is reflected in South Africa’s multi-national population of fifty three million, comprised mainly from African, European and Asian descent.

South Africa’s climate is considered to be temperate, meaning that the difference between summer and winter is not as significant as what countries in the Northern Hemisphere would experience. The climate ranges from hot desert in the North West to lush sub-tropical climate in the East. In the South West of the country the temperature can be compared to that of countries in the Mediterranean. This is where the country’s famous wine producing region is based hosting the vineyards at Stellenbosch , Franschhoek, Paarl and Barrydale. Tours of the wineries in these regions depart daily from Cape Town and Stellenbosch.

Although the winter in South Africa is between June and August December and January are the peak tourist months, when ex-pats living abroad return to families and friends for Christmas, when holiday makers from the cold northern hemisphere winters venture south in search of the sunshine and beaches that South Africa has to offer.

If your are particularly looking for a Cape Town Campervan hire then Cape Town, the most southerly city in South Africa, is the most beautiful destination for people who want to enjoy their Campervan hire in South Africa. Take in events such as the Tomorrowland Festival in February 2015 (one of the world’s largest electronic dance and music festivals), You can take a ride on the cable car to the top of the famous Table Mountain, a great observation point to take in the whole of Cape Town and see Robben Island – the island prison where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 27 years.

Once you pick up your Cape Town campervan hire it gives you the freedom to explore the places, not normally available to tourists on a package holiday.  South Africa’s natural splendour is eye opening, and when you hire a campervan in South Africa it is the perfect way to experience the rugged coastlines, the long sandy beaches, the towering peaks and high rugged mountains. South Africa boasts many different species of wildlife which can be observed from your campervan. Just make sure you choose your overnight parking place carefully. Also please take care when driving as many of the roads in South Africa are not always fenced off, therefore domestic animals can wander onto the road. Additionally if you are travelling at night, please look out for large antelope crossing the road. A bit like our wild deer in Europe, these will cause a lot of damage to your campervan if you are in a collision with one, as well as causing the animal a lot of suffering. To help avoid such an incident there are road signs depicting a leaping antelope, warning of the danger.

There has never been a better time to hire a holiday campervan in South Africa and take in all its natural beauty. Just remember all visitors to South Africa must be in possession of a passport valid until 30 days after the intended return date from South Africa
