I was very happy with everything and I hope to use your services again next time I am in Zanzibar.
I used Kibabu Cars for a 4-day holiday in September. I was late to come out of the airport, probably the last one to leave the arrivals area as they lost my luggage. Kibabu's colleague was outside waiting for me. I was aggravated enough already because of the baggage ordeal and it was late so I forgot to do all the checks which the forums warn about - driving permit, insurance, car condition, etc. I just took the keys and handed the guy $100 in cash as a deposit. I was a bit uneasy about this, but it was in the conditions to which I had agreed.
As a white driver in Zanzibar, I was stopped at every single checkpoint on the island and the police would look at everything possible. I must have been stopped about 12 times during my stay there and they never found anything wrong with the car or the papers. Everything went smoothly. On my return of the vehicle at night at the airport, I met the same colleague of Kibabu who had given me the keys. He had a quick look at the car and was quick to hand back to me what appeared to be the same new dollar bills I had given him.
Overall, everything was fine and I am happy to have used Kibabu and would gladly do so again next time I am in Zanzibar. His price was reasonable, all documents were in order, his employee was punctual with the appointments and the car itself, despite old, was in good condition and was running smoothly.
