We have had a number of holidays in Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique where we have hired a 4x4 and driven ourselves, so far without mishap. We want to do the same in Tanzania however I have just read the Rough Guide which paints a very negative view of driving in the country and suggests no one will hire me a car even if I wanted to without a local driver.
Having searched the internet I have found Avis do 4x4 rentals from Dar so that implies the guidebook is out of date. Can anyone tell me if it is a good idea to drive oneself, we aim to spend 5 weeks in November / December in Tanzania and possibly the north of Mozambique as we only managed the south on our last visit.
I look forward to some comments.
