Living in Nairobi you have to know how to get around. It's easy to rent a car in Nairobi provided you have an international drivers license. Driving is on the left side of the road.

There are very many car rental companies to choose from. Some companies will not rent out some vehicles on self drive such as the 4x4 and safari vehicles, luxury ones but all the others are easily available. Its all depends on the vehicle maintenance.

With the rising fuel prices be ready to pay kshs.110 - 120 per liter (as on 28 April, 2011). Parking in Nairobi is scarce during the weekend and you may part with kshs.140-300 per day. Although there are parking such as lifestyle and council which offer hourly parking the minimum is KShs.80 per hour. Of course vehicles are parked at owners risk. If you park at a city council parking be sure you personally get out and look for the attendant (they have yellow jackets written NCC-Nairobi city Council) get a receipt and clearly display on your windscreen. Otherwise, it will be clamped and mishandled and taken to the yard where you will pay a heavier fine and may even be prosecuted. Sorry, but parking meters don't work as per this time.

The Jomo Kenyatta Airport is paid upon exit  - being a world class airport you are easily guided into making payments to avoid the long exit queues. Wilson airport is paid upon entry and depends on the car capacity size.
