Rent a car with a driver-guide

All our drivers are fully trained guides with encyclopedic knowledge about Tanzania and the procedures for all the tourist destinations. Renting a car with a driver-guide is a great advantage, as it saves time looking for a specific attraction and does the paperwork if needed. A driver guide costs USD 38 per day, which covers his meals and lodging while on tour, so you should not include him in your meal plans unless it is necessary. Safari drivers are chefs as well, so if you will be in need of a chef driver, the allowance will be USD 60 per day.
