Kisumu Guide

Kenya's third largest city, Kisumu is a Millennium City and a basin city for Lake Victoria. This Nyanzan capital lies 15 miles from the equator giving the city a warm climate. A good way to beat the heat while travelling through the city is through cheap car hire at Kisumu, which offers a comfortable means of transport within the area.

To kick off your journey, drive your car hire at Kisumu to the City Museum where interesting exhibits of realistic wildlife can be seen. Among the exhibits is the image of a wildebeest under attack by a lion. This image is made alive by the realistic make of the two animals (stuffed to resemble real forest beasts).

A few hours' drive on your car rental at Kisumu would take you to the famous Maasai Mara preserve where a wild safari could be experienced. In the safari you'll get to see wild animals in their natural habitat.

Wildlife is probably the most proud attraction in Kisumu. More animal sanctuaries await at the Hippo Point and the Kisumu Impala Sanctuary. The Hippo Point not only hosts a wealth of massive hippopotamuses but also offers the greatest view of the Lake Victoria sunset. The Kisumu Impala Sanctuary offers more opportunities for viewing wild creatures.

You may well pass by the famous Kit Miyaki or the weeping rock where, as legends say, a weeping soul of a betrayed woman lurks. The site holds a magnificent mound of rock, topped by 3 smaller rocks, a breathtaking view of a nature's wonder.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
