Before getting a self drive safari car, what must I know?

Kenya is in East Africa and home to over 50 million citizens and non-citizens. Nairobi, the capital city, is a city that seems not to sleep. The country can experience a scorching climate. However, driving around allows you to explore this beautiful country with freedom.

The advice from our reservation desk:

  • At several points in Kenya, some criminals stand to warn you of oil coming out of your car, do not stop, proceed.
  • If you happen to stop, they will pour oil down and convince you that the vehicle is faulty; please do not stop.
  • Check if the car is mechanically ok.
  • Take a photo of the vehicle from scratches.
  • Kenya is a developing country, and criminals will try to trick you always; please do not entertain strangers.
  • If you need to ask, enter a fueling station, you are safer there.
  • Make sure the vehicle is locked when packed or driving.
  • Pay the parking fee to avoid paying more.
