A successful safari is achieved with very many things, but the most important is the kind of car used, the kind of car used can make your safari memorable or a miserable. So to avoid this it’s better to choose the best car that can suit you budget, the number of people you are traveling with and the destination. For a safari to Uganda’s national park including Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Mgahinga National Park, Murchison Falls National ParkKidepo Valley National Park among many others it’s better to use a 4×4  safari car which can navigate most of the tough roads, most of Uganda’s attractions can only be visited with a 4 wheel drive vehicle.

When you hire a Uganda self drive car, you are assured of the freedom on your safari, as you will be driving at your own pace since you drafted your own itinerary and you will get the opportunity to view the different landscape in a more detailed way and at your own pace. Not only that, but you will have more chance to interact with the local people. You will determine the speed to drive and you are free to stop at any point you need. Toyota land cruiser, Toyota Rav4, mini bus and vans are more suitable for safaris and they can be hired either on self drive or with a driver. If you are not well conversant with some of the roads around its better you hire a car with a driver as they are well experienced and know each and every part of the country. Just contact us we will get one for you, they are good at specking English and if you are interested in a special language we can get a guide who will translate for you while on your safari in Uganda. However, if you are driving your self remember to always keep left unless overtaking.

We have a variety of safari cars for renting options that will make your Uganda tour a memorable one, so if you are looking for a safari just contact us be it a safari land cruiser, rav4, minivan, or a costar for a very large group of travelers who wish to travel together.  All our cars are in good condition and are rented on unlimited mileage.

If you want to economize on your budget especially for a small group of 2-3 people, it’s better to go for a sedan car, a rav4 does it better especially if you are going in remote areas, it’s a 4 wheel drive which can navigate well the tough road and if the group exceeds that a land cruiser is the best option and it has a pop up roof suitable for game viewing in a national park. if you are looking for a perfect car for your safari, contact us through sending us an email on info@ugandaselfdrive.com or you can call us directly on +256-77255-2950  We shall reserve for you a car before your arrival.
