Rent a car with driver

All of our drivers are experienced, helpful and most of all pleasant company. He will also do the game drives in the parks. The cost of hiring a driver is €40 / day – this also covers his meals and accommodation. You don't need to arrange accomodation for him, as the lodges have facilities for the driver-guides. 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.

If you're taking a driver with you into the national parks, the Tanzania National Parks Authority requires you to have your entrance permits paid in advance, so you won’t be able to just decide on the fly. If you book a car with a driver, Roadtrip Tanzania will help by arranging the required park entrance permits for you in advance.
