Cost of Car rent and driver in Uganda.

Renting a car in Uganda usually depend on the type of the car you want to rent.  suitable 4×4 car cost from 85 USD while hiring a driver-guide costs an additional $35 per day, with all money going directly to the  driver. This amount also includes his meals and lodging. You won’t have to worry about finding him a place to stay because the lodges provide special facilities for driver-guides where they may eat and sleep at a discounted rate. We also provide camping equipment to your driver if you embark on a camping excursion. We ask that you prepare food for your driver and cook your meals together because there are no other options for eating inside the national parks. The majority of drivers are capable chefs.

When traveling into a national park with a driver, you must pay the park’s entrance charge, which ranges from \$2 to \$5 per day depending on the park.

It should be noted that fuel is still your responsibility. You rent a car in Uganda with a full tank and return it with a full tank. It should also be noted that having a roof tent increases your fuel consumption

Are you undecided about hiring a driver for your game drives in Uganda’s parks? Alternatively, a ranger-guide can be obtained at the national park entrance gates to assist you in spotting wildlife. This will set you back $ 20 and may be arranged at the park gate.

If your vehicle breaks down, rest assured that we provide 24-hour roadside assistance and always have a replacement vehicle available. Our client service is second to none!
