Kibabu cars is very professional and helpful

We had an awesome experience in Zanzibar. Good service and good car condition.Hope to come again one day.Matteo and Daniel

We have used the car rental service of KibabuCars. A Toyota Rav4 was supplied to us. The service was perfect and impeccable. We found the car in front of the airport square and,on the way back, we returned it to the same place at 5 am. The kibabu Cars staff gave us the temporary driving permit and everything went perfectly. The car was in good condition and allowed us to turn the whole island along rough roads. The price paid was honest. If we go back to Zanzibar we will definitely turn to him again .Massimo C(Italy)

Thank you very much. I've traveled 53 countries, and you were the easiest and best car rental company I've experience.Joseph H(America)

Thank you for the car hire in Zanzibar, the car was just what we needed, it fulfilled all our needs.The driver who dropped the car off and met us at the airport on our return was very helpful and showed us where to get fuel and put us on the road to get out of Zanzibar City.I would certainly use Kibabu Cars again.Regards,Jonathan C(British)

We had a great time in Zanzibar and we want to come back

Thanks again for a really good rental car service on Sansibar! Being personally picked up at 3 o´clock in the morning from such friendly and relaxed staff was a really good start for our holiday on Sansibar.After breaking down with the car I was impressed how fast your staff did bring a replacement to our hotel so we hardly felt any stress at all.Thanks for handling everything fair and nicely.Kilian F (German).

In most travel forums and recommendations on Zanzibar, it is suggested not to rent a car in Zanzibar.On the one hand, they present the traffic as very difficult, the police that bothers with the objective of raising money and the lack of serious car companies.With this background, we also encourage you to rent a car for 9 days with KIBABUS. What to say? That has been a very good experience. The coumunicacion by mail with Farhat and by wasap was clarisisma from the first moment. All clear. No surprise Its people wait for us at the airport upon arrival and we deliver it to the same place.One day, we had a problem with the car battery and in a little over an hour they came to help us (we were on a beach away from Stone Town). And they directly replaced the car with another one at the same time. Police? They stopped us sometimes (two or three), with all the kindness of the world. The traffic? A bit chaotic in stone town, but nothing serious. In short, it is a good idea to rent a car if you want to know the island, and Kibabus offers a good service to do so. I would repeat with them.

Thanks for your service, everything was great.Maksim A(Belarvs)

From our side we were very pleased with the car and service.We did have an issue with the car but that was quickly resolved.Erwin V(Belgium)

And yes KIBABU was great and we recommend you.Best regards,Andreas B(Austria)

We rented a Rav4 for a week in Zanzibar, the experience could be better. They gave us the car in perfect condition, they were very friendly, they gave us all the necessary instructions and a map where they indicated the points of interest on the island.The delivery of the vehicle was simple and fast, they were waiting for us upon arrival at the airport.We have no doubt that we will return to Zanzibar and, of course, we have the help of our friends from Kibabu.Victor C(Spain)

We've rented a Toyota RAV 4 - 3 doors car for 5 days in Zanzibar. We made the arrangement before we arrive to Zanzibar. The car was delivered on-time. We were in touch with Farhat all the time, she was responding quickly to our each query. As all the cars in Zanzibar, the car was a bit old, 2003 model but it was well maintained and working well. Even in some hotels we stayed, they loved our car and commenting like it is a good car.When we were getting gas from the station, the gas station employee was not careful and damaged the gas tank cover. Kibabu didn't make this damage as a problem and didn't charge extra for this damage.I would recommend Kibabu for your car rentals.Best Regards,Serhat G(Turkish)

Thank you for the good service we received from Kibakucars

We were impressed with the change of cars and how fast the response was after we reported that we had some problems with the one we initially rented. We can recommend Kibakucars to anyone wishing to rent a car in Zanzibar. Best regards,Deon F (SA)

We had a great time on Zanzibar, we had a good expiriance with Kibabu Cars. We had some issues with a rental car and the boss delivered another car for us in just one hour. So everything was great, 5 stars for Kibabu Cars. See you next year, Aljaž A

I’ve just returned to Australia after 10 beautiful nights in dreamy Zanzibar. I am a single mum who works in the airline industry so am lucky enough to travel the world with my 16 and 18 year old children. We love an adventure and having the freedom to do as we please once we arrive in our destination. That’s why we always chose to drive. I’d read some information about driving around Zanzibar and it sounded a little difficult but I decided to look into it anyway. I’m so glad I did as it was absolutely easy and we really saw so much more than we could’ve otherwise. From booking, follow up emails from Kibabu and meeting the wonderful staff who met us at our hotel, organised my driving permit and met us at the airport when we were leaving, the whole process was flawless. Thank you so much for the best car rental service I have experienced anywhere. Huge recommendation to use Kibabu for your car rental in Zanzibar. So happy, Sydney ,Australia
