Car hire in the Middle EastA self-drive tour through the Middle East will be a truly rewarding experience for the intrepid traveller. Take Jordan: from Amman, drive to the ancient Rose City of Petra and from there to Wadi Rum, home to the semi-nomadic Bedouin. Drive on and you’ll get to the lowest point on Earth – the Dead Sea.
In Oman, with its excellent road network, spend some epic days exploring the mountains, deserts and cave complexes outside Muscat. The coastal road back to the capital passes by an ancient city visited by Marco Polo.
Uncover the United Arab Emirates
The “wadi bashing” can continue in the United Arab Emirates. Carve up magnificently maintained highways and discover the lavish mosques and rich heritage of Sharjah, the souks of Dubai and the deep-in-the-desert tented lodges and fortress hotels of Dubai and neighbouring Abu Dhabi. Allow time for camel rides, bouts of falconry and off-road jeep action amongst the sun soaked dunes. Abu Dhabi’s Liwa Desert is one of the largest uninterrupted sand deserts in the world. Plough through it at speed and at ease with Avis.
Israel is an easy country to cover on a road trip. Drive from northern Tel Aviv to Eilat in the south in just 3.5 hours (and explore Herod’s palace while you’re there). Most of the action is closer to the capital: cruise north to Bethlehem or east to historic Jerusalem. Continue on for a wallow in the world’s most famous salt lake, the Dead Sea.
Car hire in South AfricaExperience the charm and magnificence of South Africa as your hire car purrs through Kruger National Park, strides along the foothills of Cape Town’s Table Mountain and outshines the brightest diamond at Kimberly Diamond Mine. Drive beautiful scenic routes such as The Crocodile Ramble, The Garden Route, and Cape Town’s breath-taking Chapman Peak immersing yourself in an authentic South African experience surrounded by the beauty of the mountains and flora.
Luxurious food and accommodation
Travellers can choose from an assortment of unique and opulent accommodation to stay over and sample the fine dining and cuisine. One unique experience is a spot of lunch in the world’s third revolving restaurant ‘Roma’s’ of Durban, or for the less adventurous some dinner at the award-winning Local Grill Steakhouse in Johannesburg ; one of Africa’s best steakhouses.
Things to see and do
Turn heads on Port Elizabeth’s historic Hill Street Drive, or cruise across the dusty roads to Johannesburg’s Gold Reef City; an entertaining historical theme park guaranteed to amuse and enthral, rounded off by smooth excursion to Pietersburg’s Makapan’s Caves discovering artefacts that date back as far as the Stone age. Looking for a little retail therapy and to explore the authentic handmade merchandise that Africa has to offer?, park up at the Rosebank Rooftop Market exclusive to Johannesburg, or visit Pretoria’s Menlyn-Park for the choice of up to two hundred stores.
