Why hire a driver for your Uganda trip?

Uganda is a unique country situated in the Great Lakes region of East Africa. It is endowed with a varied range of remarkable attractions that visitors can enjoy on their trip, including thrilling landscape vistas and a variety of wildlife, among others. Whether you’re planning to go gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or take a game drive in Murchison Falls National Park, you’re in for a treat.

Therefore, it is imperative to consider transportation on your Uganda safari. While it is possible for you to rent a car for self-drive, renting a driver along for your Uganda trip may have some advantages, which include:

Safety and experienced driving

Generally, driving in Africa can be tedious for visitors, especially if you’re not familiar with the roads, and Uganda is no different. A car with a rented driver ensures you have someone who is experienced and well versed in the roads for your safety and comfort. Our drivers are well-trained and familiar with the local traffic laws and driving customs, making them an ideal choice for tourists.


Car rental with a driver in Uganda can be more cost-effective than merely renting a car for self-driving. With a driver, you’ll be able to save on fuel costs and won’t have to worry about other costs such as rental fees, insurance, and maintenance. A driver will always help you find the best deals on accommodation, meals, and activities on your trip, which can help you save even more money.

Convenience and Flexibility

Renting a driver will enable you to have the convenience of having someone else handle the logistics, which means you won’t have to worry about finding your way around or navigating the local transportation systems. You will also have the flexibility to stop and explore at your convenience without worrying about parking or losing your way.

Local Knowledge and Expertise

Local drivers are knowledgeable and well versed in all destinations and attractions in the country. They can also offer you valuable insights into local culture, history, and customs and recommend the best places to visit, eat, and shop, making your trip more enriching and thrilling.

What is the cost of renting a car with a driver in Uganda?

The cost of renting a car with a driver in Uganda depends on the type of car you intend to hire, the number of passengers, the destinations you will cover, and the number of days you will spend on your trip. It is usually between $50 and $500 per day. However, the additional cost of hiring a driver-guide in Uganda is between $40 and $60 per day, particularly for the driver. This fee covers his meals and accommodations. That means you don’t have to arrange accommodation for him since most accommodation facilities have provisions where driver-guides can eat and sleep at a reduced rate.

If you intend to go on a camping trip, we will supply your driver with camping gear since most national parks are not responsible for accommodating your driver on a camping trip, and neither do they provide meals. Therefore, we would ask you to provide food for your driver and perhaps cook your meals together. Most drivers are pretty good bush cooks and know how to start a camp fire.

Most travelers to national parks are required to pay entrance fees for their drivers, and you should be able to shoulder this cost between $2 and $5 per day, depending on which park you visit.

You should consider that fuel is your own expense. The vehicle will be delivered to you with a full tank, and you will be required to return it with a full tank.

If you are taking a trip to a national park and wondering if you should hire a driver for game, you can always pick up a ranger guide at the national park entrance gates to help you view wild life better. You will be charged $20, which can simply be arranged at the park gate.
