Car rental Kenya

In Kenya you will find cultures that are celebrating their traditions and heritage, landscapes that take your breath away, wildlife that will make your heart skip a beat and an ocean that will make you unwind from all your adventures. It’s not hard to choose Kenya as the ultimate destination to spend your holiday. Rent a car and Drive Your Own Adventure.

Kenya covers a vast surface of beautiful nature. The majority of interesting sights, places to visit and national parks are based in the Central and Southern regions of the country. Add to this a well-maintained network of tarmac roads and you start to realize how suitable the country is for a self-drive holiday in a rental car.

For years, Kenya has been a destination accessible for luxurious and affluent travelers, who could afford to fly in to safari camps and high-end lodges. The development of the infrastructure, tourism sector, education and the country in general has paved the way for budget-friendly alternatives. That is why we can offer car rental and camping. Natural and cultural destinations lie 3 to 4 hours’ drive apart from each other, and usually offer all types of facilities, from upmarket lodges to campsites. That is why Kenya is a perfect roadtrip destination.

Is kenya safe for self-drive?

We have traveled the country up and down and know all corners of Kenya. We can firmly say that Kenya is a safe country to drive around in. We wouldn’t offer our services if it wasn't. Safety aspects we consider are: road conditions, conflicts, and crime. Read more about travel safety in Kenya, Nairobi and the Kenyan road conditions.

We have excluded some areas in Kenya for self-drive, because of the poor road conditions and remoteness making it difficult to offer assistance. This is roughly the North of Kenya; everything north of Mount Elgon, Lake Baringo, Samburu National Park and Malindi.
