The sixth round of the world rally championship famously known as the safari rally is set to drive off today with the shakedown already done .
Kalle Rovanpera who tops the overall standings with 125 points will be looking to impress in the safari and cement the position.
Belgian Thierry Neuville and Ott Tanak who are second and third will be playing catch up together with last years safari winner Sebastian Ogier who is currently 10th on the standing.
At 225.5 stage miles, the Safari is the longest event of the season so far and the route has undergone some subtle tweaks from last year.
Several stages have been tweaked to include new sections, while Geothermal on Friday and Narasha on Sunday are completely brand-new stages.
President Uhuru Kenyatta will flag off the car at the KICC on Thursday ready for competitive stages starting Friday through Sunday
