Car rental

Our fleet

What do you need when you hire a car in Kenya? A sturdy 4x4 vehicle to handle the roads and a reliable service in case anything goes wrong. Our car rental fleet in Kenya consists of Toyota RAV4 and Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles. We own all our vehicles and never subcontract from third parties. Bear in mind that these vehicles are not new, so the quality of the audio or A/C is not comparable to a new car you might drive at home. These cars are just right for the bush!

Each car is serviced at our workshop in Nairobi after every trip and we can rely on a close network of upcountry workshops for minor onsite repairs. In the event that you have a breakdown, rest assured that we offer 24/7 roadside assistance. Our Before You Travel Page has all the important information related to self-drive and independent travel in Kenya.

What's included?

  • Air conditioning
  • Spare tire, jack, jumper cables, rope, spade
  • Radio with port for your USB or mini jack
  • Car explanation booklet, roadmap, Lonely Planet
  • Comprehensive insurance
  • Unlimited kilometers, no hidden costs!
