The Roadtrip Uganda Team

Our operations in Uganda are run by Andrew, who is originally from New Zealand but has lived in East Africa for many years, Julius (Uganda) who has been with us since our humble beginnings, Shaban (Uganda) our head mechanic, and a happy bunch of great staff and drivers. Marin (the Netherlands) will happily assist you when you make a booking or have a question. When you have your car delivered, you will probably meet Abasi or Julius. Katherine (UK) is our Marketing guru and Susan (Uganda) is our Administrator. 

The Roadtrip Africa head office is based in Kampala, on Luti Mukasa Road, off Ggaba road in Kansanga. 


Directions: We are close to the International University of East Africa, on Ggaba road. When you have passed the University on your right, you see a Barclays Bank / ATM on your right. Turn right immediately after the ATM, onto a small tarmac road, sloping down. After 200 metres, you'll find a grey gate on your left. We are plotted on Google Maps and Maps.Me.

How it all started 

Roadtrip Africa is owned by a few Dutchies and has country offices in Kampala, Arusha, Nairobi and Antananarivo (Ivato). Since 2011, we have taken the lead in catering to the independent traveller, through car & camping gear rental with a big dose of insider travel tips.
It all started with Okke and Laura from the Netherlands. When they were living in Uganda, they had lots of friends coming over to visit and they wanted to explore Uganda at their own pace and at an affordable rate. However, this was impossible at the time as no other company offered reliable car rental for self drive with camping gear and route planning assistance. An idea was born and now, eight years later, we have a successful and growing business. We have increased our fleet, expanded to Tanzania, Kenya and Madagascar and can count on a growing community of (returning) customers from all over the world.
