Roadtrip Kenya's fleet for self drive hire - the Landcruiser GX specs

by Laura van Dijk

In Kenya, the roadtrip fleet consists of the Toyota Hilux Double Cab, the Toyota Landcruiser GX 80 series and the Toyota Landcruiser stretched.

Take note that apart from the Hilux, our most upmarket car category, our Landcruiser vehicles are well maintained but NOT new. Hence, the driving comfort and quality of the audio or A/C is not comparable to a new car you might drive at home or have rented in Southern Africa, where the roads tend to be in better condition and are very accommodating for self-drive, therefore putting much less wear and tear on the vehicles. The Landcruiser's you see in Kenya are made for the bush.

Read our specification sheet and know what to expect when renting a car from Roadtrip Kenya.
