What They Say About Us

Great safari with Charis We booked a Toyota Prado and driver (Charis) with Your Drive Uganda for our epic 14 day adventure in Uganda June 1-15, 2023. After we crossed the border from Rwanda, he picked us up in Lake Mutanda, and from there we went to Bwindi for gorilla trekking, Mburo Lake, Queen Elizabeth park, Kibale for the chimps, Murchison Falls, Ziwa rhino sanctuary and ended in Entebbe for our flight home. Charis was a great driver and guide, expertly navigating the roads, some of which are pretty rough, and he got us where we were going safely. He’s enthusiastic and fun to be around. I’d highly recommend Charis and Your Drive Uganda for your next safari. Unforgettable experience.

Toyota 4x4 - the best choice to drive around Uganda If you are looking for a budget but reliable option for car rental, you should try 'Your Drive Uganda'.The Toyota 4X4 that we rented did not look fancy but it served the purpose. We traveled from Entebbe until Bwindi, then up to Fort Portal, and then back to Entebbe. Lots of dirt roads and challenging driving situations. During the 10 days trip, we had only a flat tire, nothing else. The company brought the car to our accommodation on day 1 and they also picked it up on the last day.

Great driver who knows the roads in Uganda very well! The driver knows the roads very well, can advise you, is on time and drives safely. Pius went with us on our trip from Kampala to Murchison Falls, drove us trough the park and after the trip he brought us back to the airport on time. We all felt really safe and the car had enough space for 3 passengers and a lot of luggage.

Purely amazing, reliable and the cheapest price available Wow, Titus and his colleagues are just amazing. First of all the car (Toyota Prado) was absolutely perfect for two people and got us through ALL terrains, even through the ones at which we looked very skeptical, almost fearful at first: soft sand roads, the steepest hills and the shakiest and full of potholes-roads. The car made all of them appear easy and never let us down. Second the service and team of "Your Drive Uganda": Titus and his helpers were the most friendly people ever, responded within a minute to messages, helped us in minutes with a problem that occurred and gave us a perfect instruction of the car at the beginning. Their team is present in absolutely whole Uganda, so no matter where you will run into any kind of problem or if the car has a failure, they will be there and help you out in no time. Thanks to them Uganda was an absolutely amazing experience for us and we will come back and rent a car only from "Your Drive Uganda" again :) Thank you so much!
