It’s also at another lever when you travel with a driver guide. This leaves you with just your instincts and first-hand knowledge of the destination, which our drivers have. Our drivers are knowledgeable of most places in Uganda (including the hidden) and neighbouring countries with the ability to know where to purchase genuine things, where to eat safely and affordably, where to spend overnight, and many other aspects of the safari.

Some places in this country are not even included on Google maps but because our drivers are experienced and always on the road, they will make your trip comfortable and less stressful.

During game drives, your driver knows where to find the most sought-after animals, especially leopards, lions, and cheetahs in their hiding places which might not be possible for you during the self-drive tour. Some Ugandan stories are worth sharing especially landmarks along the way which you will get the opportunity of uncovering with the help of the driver.

Most drivers in Uganda are multilingual because, besides English, they can speak local languages hence making it easier for them to communicate and interact with local communities who may not understand English. Therefore, having someone who can communicate with local people beyond greeting is an added advantage for your Uganda safari. This is practical when finding facts about something, asking for direction, conducting transactions, and generally interacting with your host communities.

Getting lost or taking the wrong route while on a self-drive safari wastes time, and therefore renting a car with a driver in Uganda will save a great deal of time.

This kind of car rental gives you the chance to move at your own pace. The views while in this rooftop tent are the best you can ever experience. This also makes your safari cheaper since you avoid the payment for lodges which would be expensive.
