Nairobi Car Rental Mini Guide

The city of Nairobi in Kenya is the largest of the country with a population of over three million residents compared to Mombasa with 1.5 million residents. We recommend you hire a car to get to an adventurous day out on the Tana River which offers white knuckle raft rides down as far as 14 Falls which, as the name says, is a series of beautiful waterfalls that cascade into the valley below.

For golf enthusiasts there are plenty to choose from with six golf courses within just a 20-kilometre radius of Nairobi! All these areas are accessible by road and car as the city has a well-developed motorway system perfect for making use of your rental car.
