As a couple visiting CT in Sept, we are planning to visit al the usual places:- TT Mountain, Botanical Gardens, Boulders beach, Wine region ect. We would like to prehaps hire a vehicle and go off on our own. Considering the crime issues in the area, could anyone give their oppinion on whether this would be a safe option or would it be in our interest to book organised trips. Also is it safe jumping in taxis on the street in Capetown or is it best to book them with your Hotel. Thank you in advance.
