Car hire in Africa opens up a treasure trove of experiences you might miss out on otherwise. For starters, it gives you the freedom to explore breathtaking landscapes and attractions at your own pace. Imagine driving through South Africa's scenic Garden Route or winding your way to Morocco's Atlas Mountains. In many parts, public transport isn't the most reliable, making a car the go-to option. Moreover, certain attractions like Namibia's Sossusvlei or Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater are more accessible with a personal vehicle.
Generally, North African countries like Egypt have bustling, fast-paced road scenes. As you move down to East Africa, you'll notice a calmer driving style, albeit with the challenge of navigating through unpaved roads at times. Southern Africa boasts well-maintained roads, especially in South Africa with its fantastic Garden Route. Watch out for occasional toll roads in countries like Morocco and South Africa. In most African countries, they drive on the right, except for nations like South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania where they use the left side.
When you're planning to hire a car in Africa, you should know that the minimum age requirement can vary between countries. Generally, you'll need to be at least 23 years old, but this might fluctuate. For instance, in South Africa and Morocco, you can hire a car from 18, though many companies require you to be at least 21 and to have held a licence for more than a year. If you're under 25, most companies add a surcharge for being a young driver. Remember to carry an International Driving Permit alongside your valid driving licence, as many African countries require it.
