One of the cheapest and most rewarding ways to explore Uganda is a Self-drive road trip. With this option, you hire a Car type of your choice from a reputable company and drive around the pearl of Africa on your own.
To make it more flexible, choose to rent a 4×4 Uganda Rooftop tent car. Operators provide this rental vehicle with a roof tent to use for your accommodation. You can simply call it a car with mobile accommodation.
Uganda sits in the eastern part of the African continent. It has plenty to delve into while on a self-drive holiday. Every region has something to admire. The better thing to do is to sit down and draft a route to follow.
It is usually more fantastic and time-saving when you know the next destination to go from where you are. For a round trip, you can start from the western, connect to the northern, then to the eastern, and come back to the central. If not, you can do vice versa.
