Nyati Travel Transport Solutions



Hiring a vehicle in Zimbabwe is not very simple for a number of reasons.

You need to know what type of vehicle is most suitable for your itinerary.

Obviously, the size depends on the number of passengers.

You need to ask yourself if you need a 4 x 4 or not. We are often asked this question. If you travel into National Parks or private conservancies, you certainly need a 4 x 4. However, if you use the services of game lodges in these areas, you don’t need a 4 x 4, since all main roads in Zimbabwe are in a reasonably good condition, so a good saloon car will do the job.

In some destinations (Nyanga, Vumba, Chimanimani, all cities), some local roads can be quite bad. If you frequent such places a 4 x 4 or a sturdy Saloon with high clearance is more suitable.

Vehicle hire in Zimbabwe does not come cheap. Virtually all vehicles are imported, as well as spare parts. Wear and tear is substantial, since many of our roads are not world-class.

You may be tempted to source vehicles through internet. Many individuals rent out private cars at lower prices than established car hire companies. However, there is no guarantee of quality. On a picture a vehicle may look good, but there is no guarantee that the car is serviced regularly. Often the terms and conditions are unclear.

We have a small fleet of Toyota Harriers, which we only use for chauffeur driven tours.

We have our own fleet of Toyota Harriers. These comfortable and affordable vehicles are suitable for most of our tours. They have a good clearance and are fuel efficient.

You can do self-drives in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is a safe destination with a low crime rate. Visitors have the full protection of authorities and of the population itself.

Hiring a driver/guide has certainly advantages. Our English-speaking drivers are experienced drivers, we require them to have a defensive driving certificate. They really add value to your experience since they know all aspects of Zimbabwe.

We are there to advise you on choosing the right vehicle and if needed we can source a driver-guide.

We have excellent contracts with reliable car hire companies from whom we subcontract cars, mini-buses, coaches, 4 x 4’s and executive vehicles.



There is wide network of public transport in Zimbabwe. However, unless you are a back-packer, it is not advisable to use it. There are no timetables, and most of the buses cannot be pre-booked.


Using our own vehicles we provide airport transfers in Harare.

In Bulawayo and Victoria Falls we use reliable operators.



For more than 30 years we have created wonderful journeys in Zimbabwe whereby we booked all services like accommodation, road transportation, flights and unique activities.

This makes Nyati Travel a reliable and knowledgeable one-stop-travel-shop.
