    Question 4x4 Camper Hire in Tanzania - advice wanted

    Hi all,

    We've done both an Okavango/Kaokoveld, and a Cape Town to Cape Cross safari, both times hiring 4x4 campers with rooftop tents from different outfits, ending up in Windhoek. We're going to Tanzania this Christmas and were wanting to do a similar thing, but can't seem to locate a suitable rental outfit. Anybody have any advice or suggestions? Flying into Kilimanjaro and heading to Serengeti/Ngorogoro.

    Many thanks,

    Mike

    You have been spoiled by quality and ease of availability of rental 4x4 vehicles in southern Africa - don't expect something similar in Tanzania (or in east Africa in general). Camping equipped vehicles to rent are hard to find in those parts of the world and their quality is usually not on par with what you have used so far.

    In Tanzania, we have rented Landrover with RTT from these guys: http://tanzanian-pioneers.com/en/ . In Kenya and Uganda we have used https://www.roadtripafrica.com/ and they now also have their fleet stationed in Tanzania, so you might check them also.

    Hi Mike,

    We have rented from Shaw´s in Arusha (USA) in 2016. Have a look at their website (https://shawsafaris.co.tz). You may expect well serviced cars, fully operational, reliable and with a good outfit. Nevertheless pricey!
