Can I rent a flat on a tourist visa? (Cape Town)

Can anyone fill me in on the requirements for renting a flat in Cape Town?

I've been living in CT on a tourist visa since December Protected content . I ended up getting contract photography work and would just come and go on a tourist visa. I'm a digital nomad so it's normal for me. :)

But I've "lived" in 17 different short-term places around the Cape now, and I'm tired of all the moving. I love CT and I want to make it my "base" for the next year while I explore southern Africa.

Any advice? Is it difficult to lease a unit with no local credit history?

Thanks! :)
