A car is essential for this holiday. It is advised to prebook car hire prior to travelling. The main car hire companies are based at the airport, however the BP Garage in Noordhoek - Valley Motors - also offers car hire. Please note that although some garages accept credit cards, most will only take cash for petrol
British Airways fly non-stop to Cape Town, as do Virgin during the summer season. South African Airways go via Jo'burg. Flights typically travel overnight taking approx. 11 1/2 hours, and with only 1 or 2 hours time difference, you can start the day refreshed with no jet lag.
