I'm looking into a possible self-drive trip to Tanzania in June this year and wondered if anyone could recommend a good vehicle rental company in Arusha who could also supply camping equipment? We haven't booked flights yet, so another option is to collect the vehicle in Nairobi and drive down, so recommendations for rental companies there would also be useful. (From research so far, it looks like some companies allow you to take the vehicle outside Kenya but some don't).
Also, any general advice regarding vehicle rental would be much appreciated.

East Africa rentals are much different from what they rent in Southern Africa. And if you get anything comparable, the prices aren't.

From the safaridrive website, it looks like they organise the entire itinerary for you, but we're keen to do this ourselves and keep it as flexible as possible.
Any advice on good questions to ask the rental companies, or anything we should be wary of?

I'm planning a trip the same time and might go down this same route.
Camping sounds so wild! Not scared you'll get awoken by a Mr Hungry Lion?
