Why carry an IDP while driving in Kenya?

Driving Rules in Kenya

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.
  • Hands-free is a must. Keep your phones away unless they are hands-free. 
  • Drink responsibly. The legal alcohol limit is 80 mg per 100 ml of blood. 
  • 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. 
  • You should give way to those going up the hill.  

Driving in the Winter

Kenya is an African country so there is no winter here. Avoid travelling during the rainy season from April to December. Road conditions are tough and slippery. Be sure to keep a bottled drinking water in your car.

Enjoy your stay and safe travels.
