Established over 25 years ago to be a competitive, quality operator in tourism logistics and experiences. To be big enough to pass on economies of scale to our customers, but not too big to lose the important personalised service key to travel advice, planning and execution.

Who We Are?

We at Dolphin know Tanzania, the conditions and the service support needed to maintain a fleet of vehicles heading out into the country and its rugged terrain. We understand the dependence our customers have on our vehicles and services due to the remote destinations and adventurous nature of their travels.

Our performance in the field is legendary due to our mobile service units for accident and other repairs. Our team learned their trade in the mining and exploration sector – renting vehicles to businesses that could not afford to second guess the reliability of their vehicles, operating for weeks on end in the most detached areas.

We now bring that same dependability and adventurous spirit to travellers and tourists reaching out to far flung places, in search of adventure. Our roots are in Mwanza, on the shores of Lake Victoria, in contact with some of the greatest National Parks in the world, and the heart of the mining and exploration areas of the country. We now have a large office and depot in Dar es Salaam as well.

Given the nature of our business, and the clientele we service, it was soon apparent that they needed insightful recommendations into where to best have time off, time to get to know this wonderful country, Tanzania. Thus we formed partnerships with some of the finest safari and island resort owners to bring packages and deals tied into primarily Auric Air, but also here at Dolphin Car Hire.


Our vision is to be a nationwide market share leader in providing the best service in Car Hire forMining and Exploration Industry. We will try to attain this vision by providing our customers cost effective and quality service.

We will add value to these services by providing legendary customer service through our uncompromising commitment to customer satisfaction.


Our objective is to be the best car hire service Providers to the Mining & Exploration Industry. This we will achieve by giving our clients a value for their money.
