Is renting a car a good idea in South Africa, will it make it easier to get around verses other infrastructure, or do driving standards, road quality, hijacking make it not worth it? Would a particular vehicle type be recommended, to handle the road surfaces or/and to look inconspicuous?

  • Please split this into several questions. Also remove the opinion based ones since there will be inevitably closed. – JoErNanO Jul 5 '15 at 15:22
  • You've asked at least 3 questions now that are subjective. It's definitely worth having a read of the help center and following the guidelines in there to avoid more subjective questions being closed. If you really, really want to ask a subjective question, the Travel Chat is a good place for it - plus several of the regulars in there have been to Cape Town and South Africa... – Mark Mayo Jul 5 '15 at 18:15
