Why you should go camping in Kenya 

Whether you are on a budget, love the bush, or just don't want to have to book your accommodation ahead of time - roadtripping with a full set of camping gear in the back of the car gives you all the freedom you want for your adventure in Kenya.

Kenya is becoming more suitable for a camp holiday. There' a growing number of campgrounds popping up all over the country, ranging from basic bush campsites inside the parks, to private campgrounds operated by a lodge owner, enabling you to stay at a secured site with good amenities whilst sleeping for a dime. 

Campsites do not require any advance arrangements - most of them can't even be booked in advance. Refer to our accommodation page for a list of our favourite campsites in Kenya. Also, the Lonely Planet that comes with your Roadtrip Kenya rental car has detailed and updated information about most campsites.
