4x4 rental driving tips in Kenya
When driving in Kenya, be cautious and follow traffic laws and signals. Wear your seatbelt, watch for pedestrians and livestock on the road, and be prepared for varying road conditions. Unlike other countries, drivers need to yield to larger vehicles, use hand signals in certain places, and drive on the left side of the road. Knowing the lead driving customs and rules will help make your trip safe and enjoyable.
In Kenya, roundabouts are circular intersections that aid traffic flow in cities and towns by preventing congestion and enhancing safety. They are recognizable through circular painted lines on the road and a center island that divides the traffic lanes. When driving in a roundabout, Kenyan drivers should yield to vehicles already within and signal when they intend to exit.
In Kenya, highways have a 100 km/h limit and urban/residential areas have a 50 km/h limit. Some highways may be 80 km/h and certain sections have a minimum of 50 km/h. Penalties for violating speed limits range from fines to imprisonment. Follow speed limits for safety and be aware of the current limit while driving defensively.
Car theft is rampant in Kenya, especially in cities like Nairobi and Mombasa. High-end vehicles are targeted, often sold illegally or used for other crimes. Despite increased police patrols and anti-theft measures, corruption and lack of resources make it challenging to address the problem. Car owners can install security features like alarms, tracking devices, immobilizers, and park in well-lit areas to reduce the risk. Drivers are advised to be alert to surroundings and avoid driving at night.
Fueling a car in Kenya is easy. There are plenty of fuel stations throughout the country, and the attendants are always willing to help you choose the best fuel for your car. Regardless of whether you are a local or a visitor, fueling your car in Kenya is a hassle-free process.
