SA'S TOP PICNIC SPOTS.

The upside of a cheap car rental is that you have more left to spend on your driving adventure. And with summer warming the land, a picnic is the perfect way to take a break on your road trip. With a cool breeze, great food and a soft blanket beneath you, here are a few amazing places to stop and enjoy the view. With First Car Rental branches in every province and major city in the country, your relaxing drive is never far away.
