Customer Reviews

Very good experience at Kibabu cars

The simplicity of contract, speedy response and flexibility leaves me wondering why we don't have Kibabu as an option everywhere instead of the big old rental companies. The drop-off and pick-up of the car at our house was very convenient, car was good and price was fair. I recommend Kibabu Rental Cars.Jon T(Danish)

We rented twice with them on our holiday and we couldn't have had a better experience (except for one thing -- read on). The cars were in excellent shape (for Zanzibar) and the flexible drop off and pick up was wonderful. They met us at the airport, and when we needed to go to Stonetown we met them there to return the car. I loved doing all of the paperwork from home and digitally signing it so when we got there they just handed us the keys -- that was amazing -- including the required tourist driving licenses.You provide a great service, I hope your business thrives!

The service provided by Kibabu cars was exceptional. Although our flight was delayed, upon arrival the agent was waiting for us and showed us the car as well as a map with instructions on how to get to our hotel. The car was clean and reliable and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was easy to communicate with Kibabu via WhatsApp and we met the agent again upon return to the airport so overall no issues. If I return to Zanzibar, I would definitely use Kibabu again and also recommend it to all my friends and family. I would also recommend that tourists should hire cars rather than use taxis because overall does work out cheaper and you get to see much more of the beautiful country. Thank you for all your help.Kind Regards, Arif S(British)

overall I was very pleased with the car and the services. In case of mechanical problem on the car, replacement car was brough very quickly (within 1 hour) to the surroundings of the Stone City and we had meanwhile pleasant time playing checkers with local "professionals" who were much better than my son and myself. I would not hesitate to use Kibabu on next visit and it would be my obvious choice, Petr H(Czech)

The holiday was wonderful and we really enjoyed it . We would recommending Zanzibar to every one. It is a very nice place with a lot of things and places to see and visit. The experience we had with Kibabu Cars was great. We took a rent a car for 8 days and we did not have any problems with it. We also took the taxi from Kibabu Carsor and as you can assume every thing was great. The driver was there on time and we had a enjoyable drive from the airport to our hotel . I highly recommend to take a rent a car to see the whole island and I would recommend Kibabu Cars to be your choice for the rent a car or taxi if you need one. They have a very quick response on all of mails and questions and are very friendly. Best regards, Tin T(Croatian)

We definitely recommend Kibabu Cars in Zanzibar. The representative was waiting for us at the airport and all the administrative procedures went quickly and smoothly. The car (Toyota RAV 4, 3 doors) was in perfect conditions and all the registration and insurance documentation were up to date. During our stay, we contacted Kibabu via Whatsapp to ask about parking in Stone Town, and the response was immediate and really helpful. We have rented many cars during our holidays through various companies, and we can safely say this was one of the easiest!"Thanks again for the great service and experience and hope to see you soon!

we really had an amazing vacation in Zanzibar

and it was the best opportunity to rent your car. With the car we visited the whole island and could learn more about the life of the locals. We arrived at 02 o clock in the night and we really were suprised that we could pick up after landing the car. :) All paperwork was already done and we could leave from the airport after 10min. Amazing service, precisley on timeand next time we would choose again Kibabu Cars because the service was top, the car was in good condition. All what we agreed before we arrived in Sansibar was respected.
Thanks Farhat for your service

MY FAMILY AND I HIRED A 5-DOOR RAV 4 FROM KIBABU CARS .
THE VEHICLE WAS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, WAS DELIVERED TO US CLEAN, AND WITH ALL THE NECESSARY
PAPERWORK. AS ADVERTISED, THE VEHICLE HAD A GREAT AIR CONDITIONER, AND WAS IN GOOD WORKING ORDER THROUGHOUT OUR USE. WE USED THE VEHICLE EVERY DAY AND HAD TRIPS PRACTICALLY EVERY DAY WITH IT. OWNING A SIMILAR CAR BACK HOME, I CAN VOUCH FOR THIS PARTICULAR'S CAR GOOD WORKING ORDER AND MILEAGE.
THE OWNER MR. KIBABU IS VERY HELPFUL AND WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO GET US OUT OF "TROUBLE" WITH THE ZANZIBARI POLICE - WHILE KIBABU CARS WERE NOT AT FAULT AT ALL, THE TRAFFIC AUTHORITIES AND POLICE DO NOT HESITATE TO HASSLE TOURISTS WHEN THEY LOOK FOR THE OCCASIONAL AND QUICK BRIBE.
THE RETURN OF THE VEHICLE WAS AS EASY AS THE DROP-OFF AND MY DEPOSIT WAS RETURNED INTACT.
THE STAFF ARE VERY PROFESSIONAL AND COURTEOUS AND WHEN I RETURN TO ZANZIBAR, I WILL SURELY HIRE ANOTHER CAR FROM KIBABU CARS!_
Kind Regards,GOPAL T (Zambia)
