Customer Reviews

Zanzibar has been an amazing experience. We like it!

Our car from Kibabu, a RAV 4/5 was in a good shape and worked responsible. So we had a good option to explore the beautiful island. And somtimes we felt like aliens, a white couple in a car driving through a lonely village. Most of the people were very friendly and curiouse. To pick up und drop off the car has been really comfortable, no waiting time, no unnecessary worksheet to mark the smallest scratches an very friendly people! If we go to Zanzibar again we will chose Kibabu to hire a car.

Zanzibar has been an amazing experience. We like it! Luis L (Spain)


We booked the car online. Information and contract were provided via email. They also took care of our Zanzibar Driver Permit. We paid half in advance and half when we picked up the car. Everything went perfectly. We went for the budget option but anyway the car was great. When we picked up the car we got a lot of information about how the traffic and police check points work and how to get to the nearest gas station. Returning the car was also smooth. Our flight was very early, so we made a deal in the start to return the keys to an exchange office nearby that was already open. We recommend Kibabu Cars to all who want to rent a car while traveling around Zanzibar.

Thanks for the amazing service

our holiday was wonderful and we are back home with many impressions of this wonderful island. My experience with Kibabu Cars is excellent. Everything - the pickup and the return procedure worked good. Thanks again.Maybe we come back again to Zanzibar.Best regards,Herbert H(Austria)


The car rental procedure was easy, quick and without any disappointments. The price was very fair for the Toyota RAV 4. The condition was technically good and for the 8 days rental time it was the perfect car for the island. The small roads in Stone Town were no problem to manage as the sandy roads near the beaches. We were very happy with the handing over and drop of the car at the airport with a Kibabu representative. Any contact to Kibabu with WhatsApp was replied prompt. Next time definitely with Kibabu again. Rüdiger S(Germany )


Your service was great! The solid and reliable car was perfect for use in Zanzibar. Pickup and return of the car was fluent and on time.Christopher W(Austria)


My experience with Kibabu cars was excellent. Delivery and pickup on time at my hotel, the car was great, the service was friendly and professional. I definitely recommend Kibabu cars to anyone who wants an independent experience of Zanzibar. Thank you Shaul L(Israel)

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 car was perfect. No problem at all. The reception and return was excelent. Kind regards Francisco C


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!
