Travel Inspiration: Our recommended itineraries for self-drive

We believe roadtripping is the best way to travel in Kenya: you are not tied to a strict schedule of arrivals and activities, have the possibility to stop whenever you want for however long you want, and are much more in touch with the natural environment around you.

Our suggested routes provide travel inspiration on where to go and what to see in Kenya. You can rent camping gear and decide in the moment where you want to stay, or book accommodation based on our suggestions.

Tanzania

Tanzania is Africa’s ultimate safari destination and a roadtrip paradise. The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar are justifiably popular, but there are so many more hidden gems to explore. Take the road less travelled and hire a 4x4 with Roadtrip Tanzania to drive your own adventure.

Uganda

Uganda is truly the pearl of Africa. Beautiful nature, laid back culture and friendly people who will make you feel at home. The silverback gorillas are a true highlight. Often referred to as “Africa condensed”, Uganda has the best of everything the continent has to offer, packed into one small, but stunning, country. This means you can drive between almost all of the country’s tourism highlights in less than half a day.

Madagascar

For the true 4x4 adventurer. Few places on earth offer such an intense kaleidoscope of nature and cultural heritage, and half the fun is getting to these attractions. The endless white, sandy beaches, rain forests, baobabs, the remarkable Tsingy and national parks that only see 100 visitors a year. Combine this with a cultural melting pot of mixed African and Asian cultures and the French influence on the cuisine, and you can understand why we happily obeyed your wishes of adding Madagascar as our latest Roadtrip Africa destination.
