Read on for real stories from customers whose trips were made extra special thanks to renting a car with SANI.

Customer Story #1: Road Trip Adventure

Cape Town residents Sam and Amy had always dreamed of taking a road trip across South Africa to explore beyond their home city. With Sam’s 30th birthday approaching, they decided it was the perfect time to make this dream a reality.

After booking a midsize SUV rental with SANI, their journey began in Cape Town and took them on a 10-day loop to Johannesburg, through Kruger National Park, and back around the coast via Durban. Having a rental car gave them the freedom to take detours to towns and sites not easily accessible by public transport.

“Our favorite part was driving the Garden Route and stopping whenever we felt like it,” said Sam. “We discovered so many hidden gems – secluded beaches, quirky cafes, local markets – that we would have totally missed otherwise.”

Customer Story #2: Scenic Drives

Cape Town local Danielle decided to spend her annual leave exploring the natural beauty surrounding her hometown. After browsing SANI’s website, she booked a compact sedan rental for its great gas mileage and maneuverability.

Over the course of a week, Danielle took scenic drives through three iconic routes: Chapman’s Peak Drive, Clarence Drive, and the Cape Peninsula Route. Her rental car allowed her to take the trips at her own pace, pulling over frequently to admire and photograph the stunning views of mountains, beaches, and the ocean.

“I’ve lived in Cape Town for years but hadn’t fully experienced these drives until now,” she said. “Without the restraints of a guided tour bus, I could stop wherever I wanted to just soak in the views. It was incredibly peaceful and rejuvenating.”

Danielle was especially glad she had her rental car for Chapman’s Peak: “The twists and turns on that mountainside road are thrilling. I was so happy I could go slow and stop at all the lookout points – something you just can’t do on a big tour bus!”

Customer Story #3: Family Vacation

The Ncube family was excited to take a vacation across South Africa with their two kids, age 10 and 7. With stops in Johannesburg, Kruger National Park, and Durban, flexibility was key. After researching options, they decided a minivan rental from SANI was ideal for comfort, space and convenience.

The Ncubes said the van made a huge difference in keeping the trip pleasant for the whole family. The kids loved having room to spread out with books and snacks in the backseat during long drives. When they needed to stop for bathroom breaks or spontaneous detours, it was hassle-free.

At Kruger Park, the high vantage point of the van gave the kids amazing views of the wildlife. “It was like having our own personal safari vehicle!” said dad Thabo. “The kids were so thrilled to spot animals from the comfort of our rental.”

Mom Linda added, “I’ll always look back fondly on this family road trip. Having the right rental vehicle really took so much stress out of traveling with young kids.”
