We are planning on spending about 10 weeks in southern Africa this year and are keen to have a car so we can drive through S. Africa to Namibia, Botswana and possibly Zimbabwe.
Does anyone have recommendations for a company that will rent us a vehicle for that time which is reasonably priced and reliable? It has been suggested we might buy a cheap car and then sell it back to the vendor at the end of our time there so we're also open to ideas.
My husband and I will be in South Africa in September and, since we have lots of time on our hands, are considering driving from Durban to Cape Town and the Garden Route.

Whilst Camps Bay and the beach look good, the reports of the journey from Camps Bay to town vary between 10 minutes and 20 minutes by cab. I always make the most of my time when I travel....so suggestions regarding the best location to stay will be gratefully accepted.
Also, (with all due to…

I am planning on making a trip coming September (7th) till November (8th). Will be doing this alone, but hope to meet some people along the road and share some miles/costs (will be staying in Bacpackers).
Why I am posting here is to check if you think it's possible what I'd want to do and if you have some tips on where to go, etc.
I am flying into Cape Town and then driving to Windhoek in 3 days.
