Customer Reviews

Kibabu Cars' service was really excellent.

The pick up and return of the car was uncomplicated and everything went smooth. Flexible changes of timetable or place regarding the return of the car are no problem at all - hakuna matata! The car was good and all documents were provided at the beginning. No car break downs and no problems during occasional police stops. I can highly recommend Kibabu Cars for your stay in Zanzibar!

Driving in Zanzibar is at first challenging, but a good experience. Team Kibabu helped to make my travel a success. They were efficient from beginning to end. The car was fine. All papers were obviously in order because I never had a problem with the police roadblocks and was quickly waved through after swapping greetings. The map provided by Team Kibabu is not adequate to find your way around. I suggest loading maps onto your phone before travelling.

Comment of Kibabu Cars: Thank you for your feedback. As mentioned on our booking confirmation, only basic maps are available on Zanzibar and that we suggest to use Google Maps which also works offline.


My experience with Kibabu Cars was excellent, no problems at all. Guy from Kibabu Cars was waiting for ma at the airport and I got even better car than I ordered (for the same price). It was fully insured and in good condition. I encountered several police controls, all of them went smooth because car and its papers met all the requirements. The last day car was collected from my hotel. Zanzibar is beautiful place and if you want to experience the freedom of going anywhere at any time Kibabu Cars is definitely my recommendation.

We can't recommend Kibabu highly enough

My wife and I recently enjoyed a brilliant two week holiday in
Zanzibar driving around the beautiful Island and staying at five
different locations.
We hired a Toyota RAV4 from Kibabu Cars and it was perfect for the job
even though we embarked on our adventure in the rainy season.
Kibabu Cars service was impeccable and the vehicle well maintained,
spotlessly clean and didn't miss a beat.
Kibabu were waiting at the airport on arrival with all correct paperwork
and collected from our final hotel as promised. again, on time and all
with a smile.
We can't recommend Kibabu highly enough and think that renting a vehicle
from Kibabu and getting out and about in Zanzibar has to be the best way
to enjoy this amazing island
