Car rental

Our fleet

Our fleet consists of Toyota Landcruiser and RAV4. These are reliable and widely used 4x4 vehicles in Tanzania and perfect for a self-drive safari. We own all of our vehicles and never subcontract from third parties. Do take note 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 sturdy vehicles are made for the bush. 

Each car is serviced at our workshop after every trip and we can rely on a close network of upcountry workshops for minor on-site repairs. In the unlikely event that you have a break down, rest assured that we offer 24/7 roadside assistance and always have a replacement vehicle ready.
