When you start planning your self-drive holidays to Uganda, take some time to plan exactly where you want to go and what you want to do and see, plus where to stay. You can set up your tent anywhere camping is allowed. Campsites, certain national parks or designated parking areas can allow camping. Check the guidelines of your local authorities to see if they allow camping with a car.
You will know what kind of camper you are. If you are truly adventurous but still like the comfort of a decent mattress, you will probably want to stay away from the crowds and will not need the additional peace-of-mind that a campsite provides, with showering, toilet, washing and cooking facilities available to paying guests.
Such people will want to camp out next to rivers, lakes, beaches, valleys, forests, and mountains. Having the right equipment such as solar panels, batteries, lights, gas hobs/rings or BBQs will enable you to be truly self-sufficient.
