About Roadtrip Uganda

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, who has been with us since our very humble beginnings, Francis, our head mechanic, and a happy bunch of friendly staff and drivers. Marin will happily assist you prior to your travel to Uganda. When you want to change your drop off location, stuck in  the mud, or face a mechanical issue and call the roadtrip assistance line, Julius will always pick up the phone. 

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

Directions: We're close to the International University of East Africa, on Ggaba road. Coming from Kampala city centre, you pass the University on your right.

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, who 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 4x4 car rental for self drive with camping gear and route planning assistance. An idea was born and now, 10 years later, we're proud to still be the market leader in East Africa. 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.
