4x4 car rental in Kenya

Are you ready for the ultimate self-drive adventure in Kenya? Let our sturdy 4x4 Toyota Landcruisers take you on the journey of a lifetime!

At Roadtrip Africa, we own all of our rental cars, and we never subcontract from third parties. Each car is serviced at our workshop in Nairobi after every trip. Furthermore, we have a close network of upcountry workshops for minor onsite repairs. If you have a breakdown, rest assured that we offer 24/7 roadside assistance and always have a replacement vehicle available.

You are welcome to drive your vehicle yourself or hire a car with a local driver-guide. In both cases, we advise you to look at our Practical Info Guide, where we have selected important topics that contain information, practical tips and frequently asked questions about self-driving and independent travel in Kenya.

Toyota Landcruiser with pop-up roof

It doesn't get more safari than this! The Landcruiser Troopy has six seats and a pop-up roof for wildlife viewing. Equipped with a long-range tank and a strong diesel engine, this car is designed for adventurous off-road drives. 

Manual, Diesel, 140L, 2 spare tires, inverter. Fuel consumption is around 8 km/litre. Note that this car has no A/C. When equipped with a rooftop tent, the pop-up roof becomes incompatible. You might, therefore, want to consider a ground tent instead. Want all the details? Read all car specs here.

Rent your 4x4 with local driver-guide

Car hire Kenya with driver-guide

Are you looking for an adventurous 4x4 roadtrip in Kenya but do you feel unsure about driving? Then rent a car with a local driver! 

Having a tour guide and driver all-in-1 is a great option for roadtrippers who want to remain in charge of their holiday and itinerary but prefer someone else to do the driving. At the same time, being accompanied by a local driver-guide means learning more about the local culture and wildlife in Kenya while you travel. All our drivers speak English and are experienced tour guides and bush mechanics. No stress, difficulties or long hours behind the wheel; your local driver is there to facilitate and ease your travels. 

All our suggested itineraries in Kenya can be booked with a driver. The costs for a local driver are €40 / day.
