  • To avoid getting stuck in traffic or getting lost, it’s important to plan ahead. Peak traffic times in Cape Town are usually weekdays from 7am – 8am and  4pm – 5pm. 
  • Whether you prefer the map app on your phone or an old school map book, make sure to become familiar with the main roads or landmarks (Table mountain is always a good one!)  before heading out on your journey. 
  • Do not pull over onto the side of the road, unless it’s for an emergency. Please call our emergency number ASAP for assistance. 
  • Stick to the speed limit and make way for pedestrians and cyclists. 
  • While driving or parking, make sure your belongings are tucked away safely out of sight. 
  • There is a metre system in place for parking in the city, or a local ‘car guard’ will look after your car, however, make sure they look trustworthy and do not leave your car unlocked. And, always double check your car is locked before embarking on your adventure. 
  • Parking garages are also available for convenience and safety while exploring the city.
