Our fleet
What do you need when you hire a car in Kenya? A sturdy 4×4 vehicle to handle the roads and a reliable service in case anything goes wrong. Our car rental fleet in Kenya consists of the Toyota Hilux Double Cab and Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles. We own all our vehicles and never subcontract from third parties. Bear in mind that these vehicles are not new, so the quality of the audio or A/C is not comparable to a new car you might drive at home. These cars are just right for the bush!

Each car is serviced at our workshop in Nairobi after every trip and we can rely on a close network of upcountry workshops for minor onsite repairs. In the event that you have a breakdown, rest assured that we offer 24/7 roadside assistance. Our Before You Travel Page has all the important information related to self-drive and independent travel in Kenya.

Comfort – Toyota Hilux Double Cab
Our ultimate all-terrain camping vehicle, the Toyota Hilux Double Cab with customised canopy has four window seats and the largest storage space of the entire fleet. Therefore perfect to take on a bush camping trip with a group of four people.

The Hilux is our most comfortable and reliable vehicle with good on and off road performance. With good ride height for game viewing, increased ground clearance and bigger wheels, this vehicle is a real pleasure to drive in the national parks. Possible to hire with a rooftop tent and electrical fridge.

2982cc, 4-Cylinder diesel, manual, 76L fuel tank, 9-11 km/L, A/C, inverter.

Classic – Toyota Landcruiser six seater
Your safari classic – the stretched Toyota Landcruiser with pop-up roof. This stretched version has six window seats. The booth space is small. When camping, we take out the last row, and the car can accommodate 4 persons with camp gear and luggage.

It’s manual, has a 6 cylinder (1HZ) diesel engine and high ground clearance. Fuel consumption strongly depends on terrain, driving behaviour and load but is in the range of 8 km / litre. Possible to rent with electrical fridge and roof top tent, but not compatible with the pop-up roof.

Rent a car with camping gear
Roadtrip Kenya offers car rental with camping gear for an authentic safari adventure you’ll never forget. Great for those roadtrippers who are on a budget, love the outdoors, or just don’t want to have to book their accommodation ahead of time. We import all the essential camping items like tents and sleeping gear from The Netherlands and South Africa.

We can equip your Landcruiser with a full camping gear set and rooftop tent and/or electrical fridge, or you can hire a camping gear set with dome tent. Both options come with a full set of quality camping gear, including sleeping bags, headlights, cooking equipment, chairs, table and everything else you need for your camping tour of Kenya.
