Diani/Mombasa car rental with driver

We are planning on hiring a car with a driver in Diani beach or Mombasa, for a trip up the coast to Malindi.

Can anyone recommend a reliable rental firm?

Thanks

Hi NMarge

Most tour company should be able to hook you up with great car hire dealers with great drivers and well maintained cars,shouldn't be hard to find them around the Diani beachline.

I recommend hiring from Mombasa - i'm pretty certain it will be cheaper than renting from Diani - your driver can then come and pick you up from Diani. Just note - diani to malindi is going to be 2.5 hours easily - without stops or delays on the ferry - with those, it could easily take 4 hours or more. A saloon car will be sufficient.

Any local Diani or Mombasa safari or tour operator will help.

If you hire from Mombasa, it will be more expensive as the vehicle will have to double back to mombasa i.e Mombasa-Diani-Mombasa-Malindi. Taking a car from Diani however will be Diani-Mombasa-Malindi.

There is a guy by the name of Mr Kasman you could try to contact, he could arrange it for you from Diani. Tel: 0735353589

when you arrive at diani airport or diani town, you should visit leopard beach resort where you will easily find some 7 seater nissans, the taxis are private hire and do not belong to the hotel, you can make a deal with one of them, or if you want my recommendation then ask for Saidi if he is around, i have his mobile if you need to contact him, prices are moderate and service is excellent,

i can also recommend mombasa salon car taxis with peter or paul from bamburi,

a car taxi from diani to bamburi/mombasa kes3000 oneway,

or diani to malindi kes5500 oneway, if you want to keep the driver for few nights, he can book himself into b&b locally for kes1500 per night, plus kes2000 per day + any daily fuel cost around town,

fuel prices are about kes95-105 per litre
