Car hire Kenya specification sheet

Spec sheet: Toyota Hilux Double Cabin

If you're looking for more comfort during your road trip in Kenya, then the Toyota Double Cabin Hilux is the car to rent. Compared to the classic Toyota Landcruiser (which can be a bit bumpy and noisy when driving at high speed), the Hilux drives smoother on asphalt roads as well as off road. 

We've customised the Hilux with extra high suspension, bigger 16-inch Mud Terrain wheels to create high ground clearance. The car has a well working A/C and is equipped with a canopy on the back for easy storage and access to camping equipment and luggage. On request, also two rooftop tents can be mounted, so our Hilux can accommodate a travel group of 4 people on their camping safari in Kenya. The perfect all-round bush camping vehicle.
