FK Car Rental Uganda makes it easy for safari lovers to discover Uganda’s wilderness behind the steering wheel or in the company of a professional driver/guide. We have mentioned a list of the best tips for renting a car in Uganda for a safari vacation in the Pearl Of Africa.
Visas And Different travel documents
If you are preparing to visit only Uganda, a single visa is fine but if you want to extend your safari to Congo and Rwanda for gorilla trekking safaris, then getting the East African Tourist visa is the ideal choice which offers you a single entrance in the 3 East African countries. Those listing Tanzania on their safari itinerary require to get a different Tanzanian visa. You may even require different travel documents like a valid passport and the needed vaccinations like the yellow fever card to be granted entry into some countries.
International Driving Permit/National Driving License
An international driving permit or national driving license is a must-have if you are preparing to drive in a foreign country. In most East African countries, you will be permitted to drive using your country’s driving license for a time not going far as 90 days. Therefore, if you are wanting to hire a car for a period beyond 3 months, it’s very crucial to get an international driving license.
Note: An English driving license is understood in Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Kenya.
Letter Of Authority (for crossing borders)
For any idea to hire a car in Kampala and drive across East Africa, you require a letter from a car rental company. This letter is directed to the various immigration authorities within the East African countries. Kindly make a guarantee that if you are crossing more than one border, you get a letter for every entrance zone.
Hired Car Registration (for crossing borders)
You even require a copy of the car’s registration to deliver at a border migration station for you to be permitted to cross the border with a rental car. The car registration copy should be gifted with a letter from the company approving you to drive a car across the border places and should have dates on it/included.
Talk With Your Car Rental Company before booking
If you are preparing to travel beyond East African borders, it’s very important to tell the car rental company about your travel programmes. Although some Uganda car rental companies do allow border crossing with their car rental cars, most do not do this (we do not, but we can offer you another car from a different country prepared for you at the border)
Be Aware Of The Extra Charges
If you are preparing to hire a car from Uganda to Rwanda, know that some car rental companies add extra charges for border crossings. These costs are done to cover border-crossing insurance costs and local government taxes, among many others.
In conclusion, if you have any preparation to go on a safari in Uganda or across East African borders, be ready for all the laws and rules before embarking on your journey.
