Car hire in Uganda
Since 2011, Roadtrip Uganda has taken the lead in catering to the independent traveler through self-drive car hire safaris. When hiring a car from us, you can be sure that it comes with a big dose of expat insider tips; we love Uganda, and we love to share where we like to go to on our roadtrips.
Car hire Uganda: the perfect self-drive holiday destination
Often referred to as “Africa condensed”, Uganda has the best of everything the continent has to offer, packed into one small but stunning country. This means you can drive between almost all the country’s top highlights in less than half a day. From rain forest, to game parks, to volcanoes - Uganda has it all.
By East African standards, the road conditions throughout the country are good - and ever improving, as major roadwork programs are being implemented. All the primary roads radiating out of the capital, Kampala, are tarmac. Uganda is densely populated, meaning that during your Roadtrip, you pass many villages where you can fuel up your car, stock up supplies or ask for directions.
Tourism in Uganda is growing, but still far from saturated - creating the ultimate country for adventure, with the comfort of quality accommodation.
