Definitely hire a driver as the roads can be terrible and the matatu drivers even worse!

Its a few years ago but we had a contact called Peter at Hertz in Nairobi. We had the use of a car and driver the whole time we were there. Try this e-mail address: info@hertz.co.ke - maybe he's still there. Can't remember the cost.

I have a friend who is native to Kenya and lives in Nairobi. He's a cabbie and owns two vehicles. He charges himself out at a day-rate.

I have used his services twice in two years while I was in the Nairobi area.

Note: he can go out of Nairobi too, if that is what you want.

He's a big burly fella that reminds me of a teddy bear. he is ex-military and ex-security------so he would look after you well.

If you are interested, drop me a note and i can give you his contact details.

If as your other post you plan to visit Sammburu and the Masai Mara, even with a rented vehicle/driver, once there you have to pay for his room/board and park fees (even if his are at resident rates).

Why not simply contact a Nairobi tour outfitter - tell them what you're looking for - when, where, type of lodging, budget, etc. - who can arrange all.

A whole lot easier than Picking 1 from Column A, 1 from Column B.
