About us

Roadtrip Tanzania is managed by an enthusiastic international team based in Arusha. We have one thing in common: we love Roadtripping, we love the Tanzanian outdoors and we want make Tanzania accessible to all budgets.

Roadtrip Tanzania is a partnership between Roadtrip Uganda and Wayo Africa.

The idea of establishing Roadtrip Uganda was initiated back in 2011 when some of our friends were coming over to visit us and they wanted to explore Uganda at their own pace and at an affordable rate. However, this was not possible as no other car rental company offered self-drive car rental with camping gear and independent travel advice. An idea was born, and now four years later we can look back at a very successful start. We have increased our fleet and can count on a growing group of (returning) customers from all over the world, we expanded to Tanzania and we are looking at other African countries too. Do you have an idea, good contact or request? Drop us a line, we are keen to hear from you!

Wayo Africa is the creation of Jean (yes, that hotshot in shorts, first little picture below)... Jean founded Green Footprint Adventures already 15 years ago, and introduced exciting new activities to the Tanzanian safari industry."Wayo" means footprint in Swahili. "Footprint" is symbolic of who we are. First, our goal is to run our company in the most environmentally friendly way possible. We are constantly aiming to improve our operations and influence and educate others around us to do the same. "Footprint" also symbolizes getting closer to Africa, to get out of the vehicle and explore Africa from the ground level. It is only on this level, that a true love and understanding of the continent can be obtained. "Footprint" also means getting in touch with the local people. Experiencing Africa is about so much more than just wildlife viewing. We feel meeting the local people and learning about Tanzania's diverse cultures is a vital part of any safari. 

At Roadtrip Tanzania we offer you reliable car rental at the most affordable rate, personalized service and lots of Tanzania travel tips with a big dose of enthusiasm.
