Is it safe to self drive in South Africa?

Parts of South Africa such as Cape Town, the Cape Winelands, Gardens Route and the South Coast of Kwazulu-Natal are excellent self-drive destinations. The roads are very good and very well signposted, which enable easy navigation and enjoyable independent travel. We would not recommend self-driving to the game reserves areas or in Johannesburg or Pretoria as the roads are more complicated and you would be driving through non-tourist areas. We would arrange your transportation for you.
