Hi

Does anyone know if I must get an international drivers license to drive in South Africa, or is my Swiss license valid.

THANKS

According to this

Quote:
IDP recommended as, in the event of an accident, some insurance companies will insist on seeing one. Additionally those licences which do not incorporate a photograph need to be accompanied by photographic proof of identity.
In other words you don't absolutely need one but it's a good idea. In addition car rental companies might ask you for one.
