Reasons Why You Need A Driver Guide On Your Safari In Uganda

Want to rent a self-drive car in Uganda? You have come to the right place for the best money-saving rental and affordable car deals. A self-drive car hire safari in Uganda is interesting and loved by many travellers doing a tour in Uganda, however, it is a bit more challenging in Uganda than others in other Africa safari countries. The best option, however, is to hire a car in Uganda with a driver. Don’t just rent a car in Uganda, but a well-maintained vehicle and a safe driver that follows the rules.
A safari vehicle suitable for a group

If you book a self-drive car in Uganda with a driver-guide, he will take you to any destination as planned. If you opt for a self-drive car rental Uganda, you self-drive using the road maps to your chosen destination but won’t you be challenged to get there? You need to move with someone who knows places so as to enjoy your trip to Uganda. Supposing the car breaks down in the middle of the journey, are you going to drop it on the roadside and find another one? Simply hire a vehicle and a driver and enjoy your Uganda safari tour. But if you hire a 4×4 car in Uganda, well serviced and in a good mechanical condition, you probably won’t have any breakdown problems. Fuel is available all around the country since petrol stations are well distributed.

Our Drivers

We have two types of drivers so the choice is yours. We have ordinary drivers and driver guides. An ordinary driver will just have the right to drive you to where you want to go however, he must not necessarily know the destination where you are going while our driver guides know almost every corner of East Africa and know the twists and turns of every Uganda safari destination. They too feel a concern for the comfort of our client. Driver guides go-ahead to give lots of information about places than ordinary drivers.
How to make Proper Use of your Car Air ConditioningUgandan drivers are very aggressive especially in Kampala especially during traffic Jam, but you pretty much won’t see any traffic outside of the city. In towns especially Kampala, your vehicle is just centimetres away from other vehicles, traffic laws exist but are ignored by Ugandan drivers. People pass on any side of you especially taxis and boda-bodas (motorbikes). Visitors may not be able or equipped to handle a vehicle in the Ugandan traffic where the biggest vehicle wins.  Self-drive safaris in Uganda are good if you know the character of Ugandans and the roads as well.

Do you know the travel document required before you go to Congo?

How to get to Congo

Fly with the Ethiopian Airlines
For tourists planning to travel to Congo, you can get into the country by either air or road. If you are flying directly into Congo, Ethiopian Airlines is the best means of transport to use however the airline goes to Goma once a week and returns in Seven days. If your safari is not taking this long then the neighbouring Kigali International Airport in Rwanda is the best option since the Airport has daily flights. After your safari, you can be driven to Rwanda’s Kigali International Airport for your flight back home. If you are arriving into DRC using a safari vehicle, for instance, connecting from Rwanda or from a Uganda, the entry point for visitors is through the city of Goma at the Grand Barriere border crossing. You can tailor your Kahuzi Biega National Park Congo safari with a Uganda wildlife safari, a Uganda gorilla trekking safari or gorilla safari Rwanda and make your trip memorable with ultimate Africa safari memories.

Must have travel Congo documents

A Congo Visa
Before getting into Congo for a safari, you are required to have a Congo Visa however, you are required to process it earlier than your travel dates. The Institute Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature (ICCN); the Congolese wildlife authority, has an agreement with Direction Générale de Migration (DGM), the Congolese immigration service, to facilitate obtaining 2-week, single-entry tourist visas for people visiting for safaris in Congo. To qualify for a Congo tourist visa, you must first purchase a safari package in any of the National Park; Kahuzi Biega National Park Congo or in Virunga National Park.

What activities are you planning to do?
Virunga National Park Congo offers a mountain gorilla safari tour Congo making Congo the only destination in Africa with different species of gorillas. It may seem the same experience but they are different because you are going to trek a different species of gorillas that live in a different environment; mountainous area hence the name mountain gorillas.

With eased chartered flights to the neighboring Uganda or Rwanda, safaris in Congo can also be tailored toKenya safaris or Tanzania tours thanks to great wildebeest migration that crosses through the two countries.
Lowland gorilla trekking  
Lowland gorilla trekking is the major activity done in Kahuzi Biega National Park. The park has over 5 habituated lowland gorilla families that are trekked by travellers on Congo gorilla safari tours. It’s an adventurous activity that involves trekking a particular gorilla family in the forest for some hours, when you see it, you are allowed to be around them for only an hour. During this hour, you make use of your phone and camera, take many photos as possible as the gorilla build their nests, care for the young ones, feed, cuddle and many more. Seeing lowland gorillas is captivating and memorable making it the most sought activity in this park.  

Because the park habits more than 350 bird species with 42 being endemic to this park, it has made birding in Congo’s Kahuzi Biega National Park a very popular activity in the park. The most spotted ones include the African green broadbill, yellow-crested helmet shrike, the Congo peafowl and Rockefeller’s.

Nature walks
There are various walking trails in the park that pass through the tropical rainforest to different tourism sites. The Tshibiti waterfalls trails lead you to three waterfalls in the park.
