    We had a fantastic 2 days while driving around in our Blue with White Stripes Cobra in Capetown and surrounding wine country! The car handled beautifully and it was truly a dream to drive around with all the wonderful scenery there was to enjoy. The weather was perfect and we found that even the though the winds were high one of the days, the way the Cobra windshield sits, it did not overcome our enjoyment.
    Great group of guys that run it …..makes me want to buy one! Thank you!

    We had such a positive experience. Clear contract. Super easy pick up and drop off of the car. So fun to drive and loved that the company provided a road map and gas station for fill up.

    The check in experience was simple and efficient… a little relaxed compared to the normal rental car procedure which suits me however we had no issues with the car and it was brought back in the same condition therefore relaxed was good. Enjoyed the car, the experience and the simplicity. Thanks for a great day.

    We hired 2 x Cobras and just had the best day. The girls drove as well and we couldn’t wipe the smiles from their faces. Everyone was a Rockstar for a day. What a way to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Cape Town.
    5 Star experience.
    Live for a day!

    The team at Cobra experiences is very professional and was quite flexible in accommodating our different requests. They were also very helpful in providing information about how to operate the car properly and the various scenic routes to take to enjoy the ride to the fullest. Overall it was a very positive experience and both my girlfriend and I have great memories of that day. Thanks team Cobra Experience!

    Was great, will definitely do this again. The drive around Chapman’s peak to Stellenbosch along the coastline and back was medicine for the soul, an awesome and relaxing experience. All this with an effortless admin process.
