    Default Self drive in Kenya...June 2016

    Hello everyone...we are looking for a vehicle rental company that is recommended and respected in Kenya. We are going to be spending 11 days on the ground.

    This will be our first self drive but we have spent a fair amount of time in South Africa and Botswana, plus the off roading we have done in America and Canada.

    I have reached out to Roving Rovers, but again just looking for any recommendations.

    Thanks...

    Highly recommend Safari Drive. We did a trip with them in Namibia and Zambia and everything worked very well.

    I rented a Rav4 for two weeks, in 2010. Toured everywhere I wanted and never needed a more capable rig. Even did most of the Mara in that rig with a Masai we pickeed up hitchhiking. Great trip! I should do a report.....

    Rented the Toyota in downtown Nairobi. I can dig out the card if you are interested.
