32518004 - cheerful african man inside his new car

Would you want to hire a car but feel insecure about a self-drive vacation? Our company works with a team of professional and very charming drivers/guides, who understand the ‘Pearl of Africa’ from inside and out.

This opportunity is excellent for travellers who do not want to drive themselves, who want a better comfortable adventure or who want to know more about the local culture and wilderness in Uganda. All our drivers speak English and are professional tour guides and jungle technicians.


Hiring A Car With A Driver/Guide On A Safari & What To Predict

You can predict from your driver that he will drive you to your next destination safely and is reliable for the well-servicing of the car. He will even do the game drives in the national parks and he understands the best sites to go for lunch, break, or storing up supplies. He can even assist you in fine-tuning your itinerary along the way and suggest excellent campsites and safari lodges to stay in on your trips to Uganda. Yet, you stay in control of your own vacation and itinerary. The driver is given to sweeten your trips. 

Our drivers are again ready to communicate their understanding of Uganda, so ask them anything and you get back home with a deeper knowledge of Uganda. All the drivers we work with are articulate in speaking English. 

Drivers Are Especially Important For Comfortable Vacations.

Drivers are strongly important for happy vacations. They have to be understanding, and relaxed, make you feel secure and in good hands and have nice company (pleasing laughs and some sense of humour that make the world a more attractive place). We always receive shining reviews from road-trippers who rented a car with drivers. 

What Does It Take To Hire A Driver/guide?

The extra cost of hiring a driver in Uganda is $40 per day and all the profits go to the driver. This cost even covers his meals and lodging. You do not need to organize lodging for him, as the lodges have buildings for the driver/guides where they can eat and nap for a lowered rate. In case you go on a camping safari, we even provide your driver with camping gear. As there are no structures to eat elsewhere inside the national parks, we request that you provide food for your driver and cook your dinners together. Most drivers are lovely bush chefs and understand how to create a campfire.

When you enter a national park with a driver, you have to pay their entry fee of $2 – $5 per day relying on the park. Note that fuel remains your own cost. The car is provided with a full tank and you bring it back with a full tank.

Questioning whether you should hire a driver for the game drives in the Ugandan National Parks? Alternatively, you can still pick up a game ranger at the national park entry gates, to assist you see the wildlife nicely. This costs $20 and can just be arranged at the park gate.
