Why carry an IDP while driving in Kenya?

Your IDP is a valid form of identification in more than 150 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information in the 12 most widely spoken languages in the world – it is understandable to most of the local officials and authorities of the countries you visit.

It translates your identification information into 12 languages — so it speaks the language even if you don’t. Kenya highly recommends an International Driving Permit.

Visit Kenya and fall in love with nature. See wildlife in their natural habitat. This African country is large so it is best to drive your own car for your convenience. Be sure to check these reminders to help you with your trip.  

Important Reminders:

  • Kenya drives on the left side of the road.
  • The minimum driving age is 18 years old.
  • Seat belt is a must.

  • The speed limit is 50 km/h in urban areas and 110 km/hr in rural roads.
  • Keep your eyes on the road. Watch out for wildlife roaming around.
  • Be sure to carry a fire extinguisher in your car at all times.

Driving in the Winter

Enjoy your stay and safe travels.
