4×4 Safari Vehicle Hire and Rental in Kenya

At Explorer Kenya Safaris, we provide 4×4 safari vehicle hire and rental. We have a fleet of 25  4 x 4 safari land cruisers and safari customised vans for hire. Each vehicle is accompanied by an experienced safari guide who is also a professional driver. Our vehicle licences require the car to be driven by our driver guides. This is because the vehicles are licenced as tour service vehicles (TSV) under Kenyan law. Therefore, our experienced safari driver guides must drive the cars with the necessary tour guide licence. Our guides have between 10 and 35 years of experience guiding wildlife safaris. We can also assist you in booking your hotels and arranging your safari itinerary. The service can be included as part of your safari vehicle hire at no extra cost. If you need a self-driving car hire vehicle, we cannot help you.

4×4 Safari Vehicle Hire – Car Rental for Safari Customized 4×4 Land Cruisers, Jeeps, and Safari Vans

We have a wide range of safari vehicles that can withstand all-terrain. Vehicles include safari mini-vans with a top hatch for easy game viewing, 4 x 4 all-terrain safari land cruisers, and 25 seat shuttle buses for groups.

All our safari vehicles are customised for the rough safari terrain and are well serviced and in excellent condition to ensure they do not break down when you are on your safari in Kenya. The safari vehicles are also fitted with long-range high-frequency radio so that driver-guides can communicate in parks when searching for wildlife on game drives. Note we are a destination management company (DMC) based in Kenya, so we can also assist you in planning your safari in Kenya and Tanzania at no extra cost, even when all you need is to hire a safari vehicle. We will advise on the best places to visit depending on the safari season and the most appropriate places to stay when in or near parks for the best safari experience. We can also help you book accommodation and advise on park fee payments, and if it’s all too much work, we can arrange the whole safari for you as a package depending on your requirements. We will work together to ensure you get the best experience possible when planning and when on your safari in Kenya and Tanzania.

4×4 Car Hire Kenya – Types of Safari Vehicles Available for Hire

There are five types of vehicles available for hire for your safari in Kenya and Tanzania. These are

  • eight seat 4×4 Land Cruisers
  • seven seat 4×4 Land Cruisers
  • five seat 4×4 Land Cruisers
  • eight seat safari vans
  • 25 seat shuttle buses

Each vehicle has its advantages and use. Groups mainly use the shuttle buses for transfers within cities since they are not made for rough terrain. The other four types of vehicles are specially made for safari and have pop-up roofs which open up vertically to ensure you can stand on a game drive and take photos of animals and birds while in national parks and game reserves. They have large slide windows that you can open and enjoy your game drive in the park if you get tired of standing to use the pop-up roof. Some seven and five seat Land Cruisers are also customised specially for wildlife photography. They have canvas roll-up windows which, your driver-guide will roll up before a game drive for an expansive view and easy manipulation of your cameras (especially with long photography lenses!) when taking photos. These vehicles are ideal for wildlife photography safaris. Note bean bags can be provided free of charge – on request – if you need one to stabilise your camera when taking photos.

Improved Photography opportunities with the Land Cruiser

The open side 4×4 Land Cruiser is ideal for wildlife photography. It has removable glass windows that are replaced with canvas sides that are rolled up to allow open and unlimited access to the outside of the vehicle when taking photos. The doors also have large panes that roll down, meaning you have many positions to get the best shots when taking pictures. The pop-up roof is large and gives a 360-degree view of the environment thus, you can take photos standing or seated.
The canvas sides can be zipped down, providing protection in case of rain, dust or scorching sun, so this vehicle gives you the freedom to take the best wildlife shots you can when in Kenya national parks. If required, the canvas sides can also be replaced with glass windows when travelling from park to park.
Driver/guides who drive these vehicles have over ten years of experience in guiding wildlife safaris thus can spot lots of wildlife for you and position the car for the best photo shots possible when you spot wildlife.
We also assist in booking off-road driving permits for our clients for Masai Mara if required so that you can go off-road and take close up photos of wildlife. Note these are limited and difficult to get so advance request is a must. Fee is US$ 500 for a week and we do not guarantee approval though we will do our best.
The cost for the vehicle and driver, including fuel and park entry fees for the vehicle and driver only (passenger park fees not included), is US$ 250 per day. You do not have to take care of any vehicle expenses; you only have to take care of your park fees, accommodation, and food (which we can book for you). We can also assist you in arranging arranging the whole wildlife photography safari package if you hire the 4×4 land cruiser and safari guide/driver from us.
