Restricted ares for self-drive

Restricted areas

The following areas are currently not accessible:

Northern Kenya 

Anywhere north of Samburu National Park is prohibited. So all roads leading to Marsabit, Chalbi desert, Loiyangalani, Lake Turkana, and North and South Hor coming down to Lodwar. Because of the draught, the region is a bit more unstable due to cattle raiding. Tourists are never the target, but we do take precautions by not allowing our vehicles up north for the time being. 

North - East 

The area past Galana River towards Garsen, Mandera and all areas north to Wajir and Moyale are completely prohibited. The region borders Somalia and is unstable. Please see the North East restricted line projected on the map. 

Masai Mara - driver is recommended - Self-drive is allowed, but we advise to explore the Mara with a driver-guide from our company. The tracks are not marked, so you easily get lost. Alternatively, pick up a ranger from the entrance gate. They are not allowed to drive our vehicles, but can help you navigate the park and spot wildlife. The most upmarket lodges have guided game drives with their vehicles included in their room rate. 

Kindly note the restricted areas are listed in our rental terms & conditions. Our vehicles have car trackers installed to monitor if a hirer breaches the contract, and you would be fully liable for any costs and loss of security bond.
