Tips for Hiring a Car and Driving in Africa


  • Check Local Driving Laws: Familiarize yourself with the driving laws and regulations of the country you are visiting. Rules can vary significantly between countries.

  • Vehicle Inspection: Always inspect the car for any existing damage before driving off. Take photos and report any issues to the rental company to avoid disputes later.

  • Understand Insurance Coverage: Ensure you understand what is included in your rental insurance and consider purchasing additional coverage if necessary for extra peace of mind.

  • Carry Essential Documents: Always have your driver's license, rental agreement, insurance documents, passport, and an International Driving Permit (if required) with you.

  • Road Conditions: Be prepared for varying road conditions, from well-maintained highways to rough rural roads. A 4x4 vehicle may be necessary for certain terrains.

  • Fuel Stations: Plan your fuel stops, especially in remote areas where gas stations may be sparse. Always keep your tank topped up when possible.

  • Emergency Contacts: Keep a list of emergency contact numbers, including the car rental company’s support line, local emergency services, and roadside assistance.

  • Respect Local Customs: Be mindful of local customs and cultural practices, especially when driving through rural villages and communities.

  • Parking: Use secure parking facilities whenever possible, and avoid leaving valuables visible in the car to prevent theft.
