Top tips for renting a car in Kenya

  • Public transportation in Kenya is limited, and those who wish to avoid the rigid structures of a guided tour may prefer to rent a car in Kenya. Most national parks, like Tsavo and Amboseli, are open to private vehicles and offer self-drive safari routes, while other areas of the country are best accessed by rental car. These places include Samburu, Mount Kenya, the Maasai Mara, and Lake Nakuru.
  • When renting a car in Kenya, it is almost always essential to opt for a four-wheel drive: road conditions are often unsuitable for a two-wheel-drive vehicle, and many national parks will only accept four-wheel drives. It is also important to check that the vehicle carries some essentials like two spare tires, an extra can of fuel, and plenty of water.
  • While Kenya does not really have official laws on children traveling in cars, kids under 12 are not supposed to sit in the front seat. Despite the fact that laws are not strict, driving conditions make it advisable for all children to travel in an age-appropriate restraint and to be seated in the rear of the vehicle. A few agencies may provide car seats for an additional fee, such as Europcar for approx. 506 KES (5 USD) per day, but this must be checked and confirmed well in advance.
  • Many rental agencies like Avis allow drivers to cross the border to neighboring countries Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda with a rental car, while South Sudan, Somalia, and Ethiopia are usually off limits. These border areas are also considered to be very unsafe and should be avoided. It is important to contact the rental agency in advance when considering a cross-border trip, as extra insurance will have to be arranged. Additional fees of around 30,000 to 46,600 KES (300 to 460 USD) are usually charged for this service.
