If you have never travelled to Africa and visited some of its main cities, you will easily agree with other Africa travel enthusiasts that Cape Town is indeed the greatest of all African cities. On the contrary, if you have never visited the city before, you may think all these descriptions you read about. Several travellers who have been there claim to fall in love with the city on their first visit, almost to the extent of being seduced to stay forever.


Table Mountain

Nature endowed Cape Town with many splendid gifts, the most outstanding of which is the Table Mountain. Towering right behind the city at 1086m above sea level, the Table Mountain is the pride of Capetonians, so much that they consider it the "spirit of the city". Without this flat-topped mountain, much of the city's splendour would be gone.

For starters, Table Mountain forms the ever-present gorgeous backdrop that makes Cape Town a photographers' paradise. But beyond that, the mountain is at the centre of most travel activities in in the city. Lovers of adventure have a great time trekking in the many world class hiking routes up and on top of the mountain. Or if you do not want to break a sweat, you can ride on a cable car to the top of the mountain and enjoy the great scenery below.

Cape Town Beaches

Besides for Table Mountain, the beaches near and around Cape Town are another major attraction. Two oceans meet at the cape peninsula: the cool Atlantic Ocean and the warmer Indian Ocean. The result is two different, but equally fascinating styles of beaches. Many fashionable travellers prefer the beaches on the western side of the peninsula, i.e. the cooler Atlantic Ocean side. This is mostly because these beaches enjoy longer hours of sunshine and do not experience the sometimes irritating "Cape Doctor" wind. The Atlantic Seaboard is arguable most popular of these beaches. It is a long stretches from V&A waterfront in Cape Town to Hout Bay.


The Winelands

The famous Cape Winelands are yet another reason you should visit this beautiful place. The winelands consist of very fertile and beautiful valleys planted with large vine fields. The green of the valleys and the beauty of the surrounding mountains give the Cape Winelands a very romantic aura, the kind that is hard to describe with words. Most of the best South African brandy and wines are produced from these vines. Though the winelands are not really within the city itself, they are only a few minutes to one-hour drive away. There are a number of smaller towns and villages in the Cape Winelands, with Stellenbosch being the most renowned. Which is a very beautiful town to visit.


Robben Island

One other great attraction that you will find near Cape Town is the infamous Robben Island. This is the Island mostly remembered as the prison Island where Nelson Mandela spent about 18 of his 27 years prison term. From the V&A Waterfront, Robben Island is only about 12 kilometres away, a trip of roughly 40 minutes by boat. In fact, Cape Town and the Table Mountain are seen clearly and perhaps more beautifully from Robben Island. The Island is today an important icon of South Africa's struggle against apartheid, with the former prison having been made a museum.

With the current financial situation, we have to always control spending of unnecessary money. In this day and age a car is a necessity, we all know how stressful it can be to have to constantly rely on the use of public transport which is not always very reliable.

When people purchase vehicles they are quite fussy on what they want to drive. Cars like the Mercedes C200, but these vehicles are very pricey when purchasing.

The best choice would be to go through a car hire company to save on the long run and not have to pay out all that money on deposits etc. like you would with buying this type of vehicle through the bank. There is also another potential positive effect when going through a car hire company.  In the form of deflation of used vehicles. Let’s say you purchased a brand new Mercedes for yourself at a very big price a few months pass by and you decide that you can no longer afford the car, you have no choice but to sell it, and you will never make your money back on it.

As Car Hire Specialists we decided to give you some of the benefits on hiring a car instead of purchasing one

Firstly you can drive all the latest vehicles that come in. buying a new vehicle is the vehicle you are going to have to drive until you purchase another one. Going through a car hire company allows you to change vehicles at any time.

Another great thing about a luxurious car hire is that you do not have to worry about the depreciation on the vehicle or you do not have to worry about the car breaking down etc. as it is all covered in your monthly instalment with the car hire company.

You can also decide on how long you would like to have the vehicle for it can be weeks, months or even years all depending on your agreement with the car hire company. At Comet Car Rental we will guide you all the way and make you happy with your chosen car hire.

At Comet Car Rental we offer you very affordable luxurious car hire rates. Give us a call on 021 386 2411 to book your next luxurious car rental today.


People travel around the world all the time, and find themselves stuck without transport trying to rely on public transport etc. is not always something you can rely on. Whether you're going international or you are staying local, you're going to find that mobility is something that you must think about. Before you go ahead with a car hire or perhaps rent a car, you should consider a few tips and tricks about this. You could easily find yourself spending a lot of money on this when you don't have to. With that in mind, always remember the following when going for a car hire.

How popular Is the Public Transport?

Here is the first thing that you need to take into consideration, and it is regarding public transportation. Are you going to be visiting a location that has a lot of this for a low cost? Furthermore, does it get packed and very busy? There's nothing worse than going on your ventures and stuffing yourself into a bus. Some options are simple, like trains, as they don't get nearly as crowded as some buses can but relying on public transport systems to get you to your destination on time and safely is not always a good idea. Think about this as you look for a cheap car hire.

Renting a Car

You could very well rent a car. That is right, then you can easily get a ride wherever you need to go. When you do that, you will be able to travel in your own time. However, you need to also keep in mind that you may not know where you're going, and will need a GPS.

Never Be Without transport

The main reason why you should explore this option is simple. You want to make sure that you always have your own reliable transport. Whether you're travelling abroad, or locally, it's best to have a way to get to and from the airport, and to your hotel. Furthermore, you will want to visit the many tourist locations and beyond. You cannot do that when you are without a car. You need to understand this as you book your flights and more. Some people dismiss this and end up stuck in their hotel or nearby because they don't know the language or they simply didn't think about getting a car hire beforehand.

Be Mobile

If you are going to visit any destination, make sure that you take the time to get a car. Whether it is just a simple option or a larger vehicle, this is going to pay off big time. You want flexibility whenever you are out of your hotel. Getting to and from the airport is simple enough, but if you really want to see the world, make sure that you are mobile with your own hired vehicle. Mobility is everything when you are in a new location.
