Polokwane is the new name given to the South African city of Pietersburg. The provincial capital's new name came recently (2005) and is still catching on, so maps are likely to use alternate names depending when they were issued. Car hire in Polokwane is the best way to reach all the sites in the region.
The main attractions here are nature related, and eco-tourists are likely to find that a car rental in Polokwane is the only way to get out away from the crowds and spot wildlife. Local travel agencies can help with the arrangements, but some of the most rewarding sightings occur independently.
Polokwane Railway Station is along Mark Street near the city centre. This important hub connects to major stops in Johannesburg as well as in Kruger National Park. These are the two likeliest destinations for tourists leaving Polokwane and both can be reached with cheap car hire in Polokwane.
Polokwane is also one of the most popular hunting destinations in South Africa. Onsite travel agents organize outings and all equipment, but in some cases it is possible to drive to a game reserve with car rental in Polokwane in order to cut out the costs of chartering transportation.
Polokwane International Airport is a dual-runway facility to the north of the city. It's accessible from N1 near the intersection with Velspaat Street. Flights regularly depart for Johannesburg, while international and other regional flights are on a charter basis. Once landing at the airport, hire cars can be picked up outside the Arrivals hall.
Frequently asked questions

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
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. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
