Enjoy your road trip using self drive car rentals in Uganda safaris

One of the most exciting Uganda safari activities in Uganda is taking a road trip. Taking a road trip with your friends or family is the most excellent way to relieve stress and forget your troubles for a while, and to make some affectionate memories along the way on your Uganda safari tour. At least one road trip in a lifetime is essential before you can truly feel that you understand your country better. Here is how to rejuvenate your spirit by hitting the road.

There are several car rentals in Uganda that offer self-drive car hire rentals to people that have driving qualifications.

Tips on how to have a successful road trip self drive car rental Uganda

Consider which people you would like to come with you on your adventurous journey. Normally a road trip needs people who want some fun, and willing to have it. They need to be prepared to be stuck in the car for hours at a time when you just keep on driving along the road. The best way to choose people to move with are those that are willing to drive at some point along the way with the obvious exception of children.

Get an idea of how long your trip will be, and the types of places people may want to visit. If there are particular must-do visits, find out times of opening, dates of special events, and the accommodation needs. These need to be planned before you set off for the tour.

Check the car you’re going to rent before you set off your journey. Your most important element of a road trip is your car, which needs to be both reliable to the places you’re going to, fuel efficient, and safe as well. Obviously, start with a car in top working order and have it serviced before leaving. Spending most of the road trip stuck in a garage won’t be fun, so spare yourself time and ensure the car is checked first. Once you’re satisfied the car’s in great shape, you have one big weight off your mind. Check the spare tire too and a car Jake as well.

If your journey is not taking a day, pack supplies. These may include food, sleeping items, clothing, and water are essentials to add to your packing so that you’re self-reliant. Be sure to wear and take comfortable clothing as you’ll be sitting for long periods and time and you don’t want to feel hot and constricted.

Take care while doing a self-drive in Uganda. A self-drive road trip is an awesome experience but don’t drive dangerously or thoughtlessly. Never overtake on blind bends or hills, no matter how confident you start feeling as you keep on driving. Rest if you’re tired and let another person take on driving.

Keep a record of your road trip. Finally, but not least, keep your memories of the road trip alive for the rest of your life by documenting it in digital like using photos and written form like recording in your diary. Take pictures no matter where you are or what you’re doing, so you don’t regret not taking pictures of your experiences. If you also have the energy to write down your feelings, do that too. All of these memories will bring the trip back to you in years to come.

Bring a car charger for your cell phone so you don’t miss out on taking photos for memories.

Make sure you see as many fun sites as possible and have a great time!


  • Don’t continue driving when you are tired. Short-term sleep (even if it lasts only 1 or 2 seconds) can lead to fatal car accidents. Don’t risk it.
  • Don’t drive so far that you can’t afford to get back.
  • While not knowing where you’ll end up is part of the fun, be sure you at least have a general idea of how you’ll get back home, or you could be in trouble.
  • Avoid picking up strangers. It’s dangerous and can end badly.
  • Be alert all the time to possible problems. Don’t overstate anything but be aware of possible dangers from animals on the road to people stealing things from you.
  • Follow all road rules/regulations when traveling to a particular country for the first time ever. You want to be safe and still have your fun, and that includes wearing your seat-belt.
  • Set a budget and stick with it. Set aside a given amount of money to help you on your journey
