    The car was easy to drive and definitely one of the best ways to see Cape Town. We drove to see the penguins at Boulders Beach and had a fantastic day. No problems with the car and was really easy to drive. Would recommend it to anyone.

    It was incredible, I’ve wanted to drive a cobra since I owned a model of one as a kid. It was everything I hoped for and more. The service was great too, very relaxed. 10/10 would do it again if I got a chance!

    I had a brilliant time despite some weather issues, these did not hinder my own and my wife’s enjoyment and I would recommend.

    Excellent Cobra Experience
    We hired the car for a full day and were more than satisfied. Matthew in the garage was extremely helpful and explained all we needed to know before we set off in our car. We had no problems on the road and traveled down to Cape of Good Hope and back along the scenic routes.
    Thoroughly recommend this activity and company

    We had the best time renting the black cobra and driving the coast of Cape Town! This was a highlight of our trip. The staff were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The online booking process was easy and quick. We highly recommend this experience.

    What a tremendous experience; Matt was very flexible with timing and gave me a hand with picking a good route that had a mix of faster sections and very scenic areas. Was an absolute pleasure and will look forward to my next time in Cape Town to revisit the experience!
