Nairobi  Car Hire  And  Rental Company provides self drive services through out Kenya and the rest of East Africa.  Self drive car hire  is ultimate flexibility, and fun in your own privacy.  Self drive means lots of freedom and choice. Self drive safari can be guided or totally private.  Guided self drive means that you have a private guide as who doubles up as a driver.  Alternatively you can drive and the guide will advice you on places of visit.  Unlike in group tours where programmes are fixed, self drive car hire gives lots of lee way.  You can trim some part of the tour, you can skip a scheduled visit. You decide wNairobi car hire,car rental 4x4wd, car hire services nairobi kenya,car hire services, self drive nairobi jomo kenyatta airporthen to wake up, start your journey and where to visit.  Whether to use a guide or not boils down to certain factors.

The Most Important of these is your familiarity with the car and destination.  An understanding of how a car works means that you do your daily driver’s checks without fail.  You daily check your car fluid levels- water, oil, tft and transmission fluids and physical examination of tyre pressure, lights etc.  Making sure that these are in order will determine whether you breakdown in the middle of nowhere or not.  More so , you should be familiar with car electrical-wiring.  Nothing is more embarrassing than calling for help only to discover that the fault is caused by loose battery terminals. Night driving require that you check your headlights are in working order all the time. Unlike conventional cars, 4x4s require additional driving knowledge.  When to and how to drive when you 4×4 is engaged in very important. If you have limited car experience, have a guide otherwise you will end up breaking your car or worse still a rental car and paying heavily. Broken cars also means waste of time.

Self driving means being familiar with the destination.  It means you can communicate in  the language at the destination. It means you know when the attractions are open or when closed.  It means you know places of accommodation, whether they are available, open or closed. IF YOU WILL VISIT NATIONAL PARKS, BE familiar with RULES, REGULATIONS AND ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR.  Otherwise you will end up being killed or injured by an irate wild animal.  Buffaloes, elephant and hippos are extremely dangerous.

Photographic Safaris: Self drive photographic safaris means a car that is neither tool high now too low.  That means sedan cars or high tour buses and tracks will not give you good photo exposures.   Settle for a 4×4 or microbus.

SELF DIVE,  means you are over 23 year of age and less than 65, in possession of valid driving license and papers of identification. You may also be required to produce a credit card or pay refundable USD 500 in addition to the rental amount. However age limit is subject to waiver depending on certain conditions.
