Pick your self-drive destination in East Africa

Roadtrip Uganda

Uganda is where we started our Africa travel agency back in 2011, and it holds a special place in our hearts. Often referred to as 'Africa condensed', Uganda offers the finest aspects of the entire continent in one small and stunning destination. Here, you can effortlessly drive to and from Uganda's one tourism gem to another in just half a day, making it a truly accessible and extraordinary destination.

Come face to face with mountain gorillas, track the chimpanzees in the forest, catch a sighting of a shoebill stork and spot tree-climbing lions. But there is more than wildlife. Experience culture in a traditional manyatta in Karamoja, hike the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains, go wild water rafting on the Nile, and finish off with a blast in Kampala, the nightlife capital of East Africa. Uganda definitely makes for a great self-drive holiday in Africa!

Roadtrip Tanzania

Tanzania is Africa’s ultimate safari destination and a paradise for roadtrippers and adventurers. Where else in the world can you witness the wildebeest migration, learn from the Masaai, climb the snow-capped Kilimanjaro and swim in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean? Tanzania offers all this and more, wrapped in one adventurous and welcoming package.

The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar are justifiably popular, but there are so many more hidden gems to explore in Tanzania. Hire a 4x4 car with Roadtrip Tanzania and drive your own African adventure!

Roadtrip Kenya

Imagine a lone acacia standing boldly against a horizon that seems to stretch into eternity. Picture the Great Rift Valley with its expansive tea plantations, creating a mesmerizing patchwork. Envision the colours, smells and sounds of traditional tribal life. Welcome to Kenya - a beautiful and unique place for your African holiday.

There is no better place in the world to watch herds of elephants than in Amboseli National Park. And did you know that Masai Mara is home to one of the highest concentrations of wildlife on the planet? While travelling your Kenya self-drive route, make sure not to skip the beautiful coastline. With a stunning blend of African, Indian and Arabic culture, the Swahili coast feels wildly different from the rest of Kenya.

Roadtrip Madagascar

Few places on earth offer such an intense kaleidoscope of nature and cultural heritage than Madagascar, and getting there is half the fun. Enjoy endless white sandy beaches, rain forests, baobabs, the remarkable Tsingy, and national parks that only see 100 visitors a year. Combine this with a melting pot of mixed African and Asian cultures and French cuisine, and you can understand why we happily obeyed your wishes of adding Madagascar as our latest Roadtrip Africa destination.
