Okke de Backer, the owner of Roadtrip Tanzania, an offshoot of the well-established operator Roadtrip Uganda in neighbouring Uganda, has sent in the following info:
Roadtrip Tanzania: the most adventurous, fun and affordable way to explore Tanzania. Based in Arusha,we are the company in Tanzania offering self-drive car and camp rental, from 65 USD / day. For this you drive a Toyota Rav4, a recreational 4WD.
Since 2012 we have been operating Roadtrip Uganda. Thanks to the great response of Roadtrippers there this is now Uganda’s leading self-drive company, managing a respectable fleet, inspiring travellers and generating numerous adventurous travel stories.
We believe that exploring Tanzania is the most fun at your own pace. Instead of fully organized tours at rather expensive lodges where everything is arranged for you, we offer a low-budget option for the independent and adventurous traveller. There is not much to offer for this group of people, apart from travelling with public transport. Our rates are competitive, our vehicles are comprehensively insured, and they come with all the camping gear you need (tent, mattresses, sleeping bag, chairs, stove, cooking set and utensils, cooling box, headlights, roadmap and Bradt guide).
Crossing the border to neighbouring countries is possible, and we can arrange pick up and drop services, a driver or suggest itineraries and places to stay/camp.
If you would like to experience the privacy and flexibility of self-drive, but peace of mind about which route to take and where to stay? Than go on one of our competitively priced pre-booked tours. Each self-drive circuit offers a carefully planned route with overnight stays in pre-booked accommodation.
