To drive or not to drive - need itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be visiting Africa for the first time in May/June and plan to spend the last leg of our trip in Cape Town and Winelands. Our itinerary is booked - 3 full days in Cape Town and 2 days in Franschhoek before returning home.

We have a rental car reserved for the Winelands portion, but the more I read about driving in South Africa, the more concerned I've become. Not only are we not accustomed to the right-hand drive, but it sounds like road-related crime is a very real issue.

Assuming we can shift out plans, would it be better to stay the entire time in Cape Town and perhaps book a day excursion to Winelands and let someone else do the driving?

Or am I over thinking this?

Many thanks in advance for your advice!
