The road infrastructure in Uganda is increasingly getting better and the road network connecting various destinations is improving on a positive trend. This therefore presents an opportunity for the travellers interested in taking up safaris in Uganda to do self-drive or hire chauffer driven vehicle and plan their itinerary.
There are a range of transport companies most of which are based in Kampala and Entebbe International Airport offering Car hire services in Uganda. The vehicles range from Saloon Cars to 4 X 4 Ordinary land cruisers, RAV4, Safari Customs, Mini-van and Land Cruisers,Coasters, Buses Luxury vehicles like V8, Mercedes Benz, BMW among others depending on one’s interest.
The arrangement for Car hire in Uganda provides for both Chauffer driven and Self-drive though most companies prefer the former since the later involves high risk. They are mostly given out on dry lease but an arrangement for wet lease can also be made.
The pricing for the Car Hire services normally is determined by where vehicle will be going and the number of days. This is because longer days and destinations closer to Kampala attract low price compared to short days and longer drives.
