How do you want to explore Kenya?
Car rental for self drive
Roadtrip Africa is the first company in Kenya to specialize in car rentals for self-drive holidays. No jam-packed and boring group itineraries from one safari park to the next. We believe that exploring Kenya at your own pace is the most rewarding.
What do you need when you hire a car in Kenya? A sturdy 4x4 vehicle to handle the roads and a reliable service in case anything goes wrong.
Our fleet consists of the Toyota Landcruiser with pop-up roof. We own all our rental cars and never subcontract from third parties.Check our fleet
Car rental with driver-guide
Of course, it's also possible to hire a car with a safari guide and many of our clients do so.
We work with a number of experienced and truly lovable driver-guides who speak good English as well as fluent Swahili. This option is great for roadtrippers who don't fancy driving themselves, want a more relaxed experience, or want to learn more about the local culture and wildlife in Kenya.
The driver-guide is there to facilitate and ease your travels, yet you remain in charge of your own holiday and itinerary. The costs for a driver are € 40 /day.Read more
Rent a car with camping gear
Whether you are on a budget, love the outdoors, or just don't want to have to book your accommodation ahead of time, roadtripping in Kenya with a full set of camping gear in the back of the car gives you a great sense of flexibility. We can equip your Landcruiser with a rooftop tent or you can hire a ground tent. Both options come with a full set of quality camping gear, including a mattress, sleeping bag, headlights, cooking equipment, table, chairs and everything else you need for your camping trip in Kenya.
