Self driving in Uganda is growing in popularity primarily because of the multiple options of tourist attractions to choose from, from game reserves filled with Africa’s rarest animals to dense equatorial forests that are home to over three hundred bird and plant species; Uganda has offers a little something for everyone that bothers to go through her surreal beauty. The experience of self driving in Uganda is further enhanced by presence of good road networks and hospitable natives. But as much as self driving in itself is fun, there things you could do to make it even more thrilling. Without further delay allow us to share with you tips on how to get the most out of your self drive holiday.

Drive slow.

Self driving is an activity that is best enjoyed leisurely. Driving at fast speeds not only endangers your life through accidents but also robs you of the opportunity to take in all the scenery and buzz of life framed by your windscreen. So in order for you to appreciate the detailed beauty of Uganda’s varying landscapes and motley of lifestyles, drive slow and soak it all in.

Use less popular routes.

As mentioned earlier on, self driving affords you liberty to choose your routes. Good car rental companies usually provide a map to help you navigate around the country on your own reducing your chances of getting lost. With map in hand-and GPS in phone- you can choose to drive on less used roads and explore more of the country on your own. This caters for your curiosity as you won’t know what to expect after the next turn and it allows you to formulate your own opinion of the region as compared to using designated routes that emphasize only certain features of the region biasing your opinion.  However, be sure to inquire why the route is not used often; sometimes it may be impassable due to the weather or unsafe in which cases you should avoid it.

Camping.

Self drive safaris are very much similar to long road trips. You will need to make occasional stops to fill up or get some rest. Some car rental companies offer quality camping gear at discounted rates once you hire from their fleet. This gives you a chance to set up camp in any one of the game parks as they have designated camping spots where your safety is assured.

Stop every once in a while.

While self drive safaris is mostly about driving yourself, it is nearly impossible to understand everything you see on your own without help from the natives. If you are charmed by a picturesque sight or setting, do not be afraid to stop for a moment and take a brief walk around with one of the natives who will indulge you in tales of lore, myth and legend about that which made you stop. Ugandans are renown for their hospitality and will definitely not mind showing you around.

Carry a camera.

And of course, what would a safari be without a camera to capture all the beauty of your journey and remind you of the fun you had self driving in Uganda.

 

Practical Tips for securing your car on a self drive Uganda safari.

 

Hiring a car for a selfdrive safari is made easier with the many reputable car rental agencies in Uganda that operate on legal licenses. Travelers to Uganda hire a 4×4 car of their choice to take them through an inspirational road trip across the Pearl of Africa with lots of stuff to discover like amazing African wildlife species, both birds and animals, fresh water bodies, the world’s longest river, River Nile and stunning sceneries on the road.

All these great memorable experiences could be brought to a stand still by a very unfortunate and unexpected incident where you realize your 4×4 car is missing and you have no idea who could have taken it. Our expert team is glad to bring to your knowledge some of the tips to keep your car safe from such ill intention-ed persons that can ruin your safari in Uganda. However, take note that these cases are rare but like the saying goes, it is safer to prevent yourself from something than waiting to deal with the wounds of the occurrence.

Always remember to lock your car.

Most of the times when driving on a selfdrive safari step out of their cars with the intention to relax for a bit or take snapshots of some beautiful places and continue with the selfdrive Uganda safari. However, we cannot guarantee that where you are leaving your car is safe enough from danger since we cannot understand people’s motives. Especially knowing that they are more conversant with the area than yourself therefore could escape with so much ease. Make it a point to lock your car at any time you are away from it to keep it safe from being vandalized.

Put an alarm

However inconveniencing the noise of an alarm can be on your self drive safari, your car is better off safe from being stolen or vandalized than avoiding noise pollution and you lose your car on a self drive Uganda safari. With the nature of these alarms that keep lighting when the car is in parking, they are a sigh that the car owner is conscious about thieves and vandalizes which some how keeps the latter away since they notice that this may not be an easy job to take on.

Keep your valuables out of sight.

Sometimes people do not commit crimes because they are part of their day’s schedule but because they were tempted to do so. Leaving your goodies out there in the open could be tempting to passersby that have been longing to get hold of some of the things you own for example electronic devices and money. It is therefore advisable that you move with your valuables and also brings us to the point of limiting your luggage as you embark on a self drive safari Uganda. Carrying too many things can not only limit your sitting space but also get bulky if you are to move with them without the car.

 

 

Carefully choose where to park.

Cars are more often stolen when they are parked and the owner is away. It is therefore rather important to be very keen and cautious about where you park by looking out for security measures in that particular area like perimeter wall, security guard, gate to ensure closure ,surveillance cameras, etc.
