Frequently asked questions:
• Where is Cobra Experience?
Based in the busy tourist hub of the Bo-Kaap we are centrally located with plenty of things to do in the area before or after the experience. We are walking distance from most major hotels and the V&A waterfront.
• I have rented the car but have nowhere to go?
Have the car but have no idea where to go? We guide you further than just the bends of Chapman’s peak drive. While your guests quickly do their paperwork we plan a unique itinerary that guides them through the perfect day. We drive the cape peninsula ourselves as often as possible, this allows us to provide the best knowledge on routes, places to go and things to see.
• Is Safety a concern?
Our cars are Factory built, this is important as the global Cobra industry from time to time has seen vehicles being used that are either kit cars, poorly constructed, poorly maintained or are outdated by up to 15 or 20 years. This statistically increases the chance of an incident. All of our vehicles comply with all regulations set out by the South African Department of Transport.
• Safety along with a memorable experience are the two most important things at Cobra Experience.
Our quickly expanding fleet of 5 Backdraft Racing Cobras are upheld and maintained to the highest level. With 2 000+ rentals completed over the past two years, and we continue to make happy memories. All of our Cobras are newly built with big V8 Engines, power steering, auto-gearboxes, as well as modern brakes and suspension.
• How many people can you accommodate?
Currently we can take up to 10 pax in Backdraft Cobra’s at a time but have a few other great classics we can offer in conjunction to accommodate larger groups. (Up to 20 pax can be arranged)
• What if it rains?
We have a flexible wet weather policy. If you wake up and find it is raining we will allow rescheduling and up until 7 days before the trip we are happy to refund you fully.
• What do I need to bring with?
Bring with your driver’s license, credit card and cash for refuelling the car.
All our cars have pre-installed Go-Pro mounts and we provide Go-Pro and SD card rental packages allowing you to capture the day on film to take home and remember for years to come. Along with this we offer refreshments and some basics, shirts, jackets, caps and sunscreen for purchase as well as blankets to keep the chills away in winter.
• At Cobra Experience we are open to big ideas and with no red tape in place we are flexible to ideas of any new tours, trips, experiences and just about anything you can think of involving a Cobra.
We also offer services for weddings, film, and photoshoots, the movie industry as well as birthdays and gift vouchers.
