Set in the northernmost reaches of South Africa's Limpopo Province, Musina is one of many South African cities to undergo a name change in the last decade. As a result some maps may use the former spelling, 'Messina'. Located along the H1 motorway, Musina is best known for its situation in a large nature reserve.
The Musina Nature Reserve covers more than 9,000 acres and includes tens of thousands of towering baobab trees. The tallest exceed 80 feet and are popular with visitors. Other forms of flora here are of interest to botanists. With car rental in Musina, visitors can view onsite wildlife including wildebeests, giraffes and gazelles.
Despite the fact that visitors equate Musina with a large tract of protected forest, it still boasts a compact residential area with access to facilities. With cheap car hire in Musina, you can visit the natural attractions by day without driving far from your hotel. There are lodges throughout the park, as well as a few hotels on Limpopo Avenue and Copper Street.
Follow H1 through Musina to its intersection with Limpopo Avenue to reach the railway terminal. Musina is an important stop along the rail link connecting Johannesburg with Zimbabwe, with trains reaching Musina in about 11 hours, 15 minutes.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
