About Roadtrip Africa

Our story 

It all started with Okke and Laura from the Netherlands, back in 2011. When they were living in Uganda, they had lots of friends coming over to visit who wanted to explore Uganda at their own pace and at an affordable rate. However, this was impossible at the time, as no other company offered reliable 4x4 car rental for self drive with camping gear and route planning assistance. 

An idea was born and now, 10 years later, we're proud to still be the market leader in East Africa. We have increased our fleet, expanded to Tanzania, Kenya and Madagascar and can count on a growing community of (returning) customers from all over the world.

The Roadtrip Africa head office is based in the Netherlands. We have local offices in Kampala, Arusha, Nairobi and Ivato (Antananarivo). We're a small, efficient, international team of Dutch, Ugandan, Kenyan, Tanzanian and Malagasy staff. Most of our team members have been with us since the very beginnings.
