Car rental with a safari guide

Roadtrip Kenya offers car rental with a driver for your ease. We have a small team of experienced driver-guides. Great for those roadtrippers that don't fancy driving themselves and like the company of a guide who can give you deeper insights into local culture, wildlife and reveal their favourite spots. 

For the additional cost of only USD 40 / day, all the suggested road trips published at this website are also possible to make as a private guided tour. Your ultimate customised safari!

This is an all-inclusive price and caters for all expenditures incurred by the driver-guide, like meals and accommodation. You only need to pay for your drivers' entrance fee into the Parks (around $4 per day). Airport pick up & drop off is included in the rental price when going with a driver.

Car rental with accommodation

Would you like to experience the privacy and flexibility of self drive, but peace of mind about which route to take and where to stay? Then book one of our accommodated road trips.

Each self-drive trip offers a carefully designed set route with stays in pre-booked lodges. These are the places we like to stay when we are roadtripping ourselves; small-scale, good price-quality ratio and owner-managed when possible. Our safari tours are also possible to book with a safari guide.
