Why Hiring A Driver Is The Best Option When Traveling In Uganda.

Traveling to a new destination is always an exciting adventure but also one that can turn out ugly if not well planned and coordinated and that’s why you always need to hire a driver or tour guide for a safe and comfortable road trip to whichever destination you will be visiting. A self drive trip may be cheaper and affordable but we can all agree it’s way better to travel with a local driver who knows the way around if you want to get where you ar going in time and most importantly comfortably. Uganda is one of the top safari destinations in Uganda filled with a variety of tourist attractions including national parks and other popular local sites which are spread across all corners of the country making it pretty hard for first time travelers as well as frequent visitors to get around easily with a GPS or travel map and that’s where a driver comes in handy.

Below are a few reasons why you should hire a car with a driver and ditch the adventurous self drive road trips

Comfort- Traveling with personal driver offers you chance to sit back, relax and just do nothing but spectate as you enjoy the beautiful scenery along the road trip. We all love to be attended to like Kings and queens and there’s no convenient way to get this than in the hands of a personal driver.

No getting lost – There is no need to worry about getting lost when you hire a driver in Uganda , there various sites and different routes to take to get there hence it can be quiet puzzling to get around even though you have a GPS or travel map. With guidance of a local driver who knows the routes and destinations like the back of his hand.

Safer option – When you travel with driver , be assured you are in safe hands as he will not only guide you but also protect you from fraudsters, robbers or any human or non-humans that may try to bring harm to you or put you in a loss.

Interaction with locals – There’s no better way to interact with locals than when you travel with a local driver. Drivers in Uganda are well versed with at-least 3 local languages including common ones like Luganda, Swahili, Lunyankole to mention but a few so you can get chance to learn a few frequently used dialect terms.

If you plan on visiting for safari tour, business or leisure trip , you should consider hiring a personal driver given all the above mentioned reasons.
