Where do you want to start your road trip in Africa?
Uganda is where we first started our Africa travel agency back in 2011, and it's a special place. Often referred to as 'Africa condensed', Uganda has the best of everything the continent has to offer, packed into one small, but stunning, destination. This means you can drive from one of Uganda's many tourism highlights to another in just half a day - come face to face with mountain gorillas, track chimps in the forest, catch a sighting of the shoebill stork, and see tree-climbing lions! But it’s not all about the 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 Africa vacation!Go to Uganda
Tanzania is Africa’s ultimate safari destination, and a road trip paradise. Where else in the world can you witness the wildebeest migration, experience such rich cultural diversity, climb the snow-capped Kilimanjaro and swim in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, combined into one epic road trip? Tanzania has 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 adventure with us as your Africa travel agency!
Go to Tanzania
Imagine a lone acacia silhouetted against a horizon stretching into eternity. The Great Rift Valley with vast patchworks of tea plantations. The colours, smells and sounds of traditional tribal life. Welcome to Kenya - a beautiful and unique place for your Africa vacation. There is no better place in the world to watch herds of elephants than Amboseli National Park, and Masai Mara is home to one of the highest concentrations of wildlife on the planet. While travelling on your self drive safari, make sure not to skip the Kenyan coastline. A blend of African, Indian and Arabic culture, the Swahili coast feels wildly different from the rest of Kenya.Go to Kenya
Lemurs, the strangest looking chameleons, avenues of baobabs, the Tinsgy dry forest and endless coastlines - Madagascar is unique. Few places on earth offer such an intense kaleidoscope of nature and half the fun is getting to these incredible attractions. Off-road driving here is one of a kind and there are national parks that only see 100 visitors a year. Combine this with a cultural melting pot of mixed African and Asian ancestries and the French that left their mark on the cuisine, and you understand that we happily obeyed to your wishes of adding Madagascar as our latest Roadtrip destination for your self drive safari and Africa vacation.Go to Madagascar
