Hermanus Car Rental Mini Guide

Hermanus is a wonderful place to spend some time during your South Africa holiday. Time it right and you can watch the whales but at other times, hire a car from Hermanus and drive along the beautiful Garden Route that follows the coast. Even Cape Town is only an hour or so away by hire car. To get to Hermanus BA and Virgin both operate flights from London Heathrow to Cape Town and it is easy to collect a rental car from Cape Town airport. The distance from the airport to Hermanus is around seventy miles and takes around 90 minutes on the excellent coastal highway.
