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 the Toyota Hilux Double Cab 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. Check the Practical Info Page for all  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!

CAMPING - Toyota Hilux Double Cab

Your ultimate all-terrain camping vehicle, the Hilux with canopy for easy access to camping equipment and storage for lots of luggage. Can fit two rooftop tents, so perfect for families and friends.

It's our most comfortable and reliable vehicle. With good ride height for game viewing, increased ground clearance and bigger wheels, the Hilux is a real pleasure to drive in the national parks. Compared to the classic Landcruisers, this vehicle also provides more comfort for its passengers when driving at higher speed on the main asphalt roads. 

2982cc, 4-Cylinder diesel, manual, 76L fuel tank, 9-11 km/L, A/C. Read all the specifications here.

Your safari classic - the Toyota Hardtop with pop-up roof. This stretched version has six window seats.

The booth space is small. When camping, we take out the last row, and the car can accommodate 4 persons with camp gear and luggage. 

It's manual, has a 6 cylinder (1HZ) diesel engine and high ground clearance. Fuel consumption strongly depends on terrain, driving behaviour and load but is in the range of 8 km / litre.

Possible to rent with electrical fridge and rooftop tent. When equipped with a rooftop tent, it's NOT possible to use the pop up roof.

Rent a car with driver

All of our drivers are skilled, flexible, experienced, helpful and most of all pleasant company. The cost of hiring a driver is €35/ day – this also covers his meals and accommodation. The driver will always sort these out himself. Most lodges have a drivers’ section and provide accommodation and meals for free. When you travel into a national park with a driver, you will also have to pay their entrance fee of $2 - $5 / day, depending on the park.

The driver is responsible for the wellbeing of the car, and the security bond will no longer apply.
