Suggested routes in Kenya

Suggested routes

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

Our suggested routes give you ideas on where to go and what to see. You can rent camping gear and decide there and then where you want to stay, or book one of the suggested routes as a fully accommodated roadtrip. If you book a car with accommodation, you can opt for budget (lasy camping), comfort or deluxe. All the selected lodges are hand picked by Roadtrip Kenya andthe places we like to stay when we are roadtripping ourselves; small-scale, good price-quality ratio and owner-managed when possible.

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. Go on a roadtrip and let us enable you to Drive Your Own Adventure, following roads less traveled.

Uganda

Uganda is truly the pearl of Africa. Beautiful nature, relaxing 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 top highlights in less 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 incredible attractions. There are endless white sandy beaches, untouched rain forests and national parks that only see 100 visitors a year. Note that the French left their mark on the cuisine, so indulge yourself!
