It was one of the best holidays of my life

and I will definitely go back again and if I do I will not hesitate to rent a car from you guys again. Everything was in order and the car was
perfect no troubles. And when I asked to keep it for 3 more days there was no problem. For anyone reading this if you are going to zanzibar
rent a car from kibabu cars the island has more to offer then a all inclusive hotel and the taxi will be much more expensive. Thanks to
kibabu cars was awesome.

We loved our journey at Zanzibar.

Everything was wonderful. Especially the day when we rented a car to discover the Island. The car was perfect, and Kibabu helped us with everything, they contributed for our trip to be even better. I highly recommend for everyone to do the same.
Thanks, Pedro G. (Portugal)


I highly recommend Kibabu Rent a Car at Zanzibar. The person was waiting for us when arriving to the airport with the driver license for Zanzíbar. The car was in good conditions and they accompany us to charge fuel. When returning the car, it was a simple process. The service was good.
Thank you Kibabu Team.

Very reliable service from Kibabu cars. We hired a Suzuki 5 door 4 by 4 for a week in Zanzibar and the car gave us just what we needed on those bumpy roads.
Would highly recommend them!

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.
