But all this can be avoided when you book services with a reputable and trusted travel agency that will be your guide throughout the whole journey.
Whether you decide to rent a car for self drive or go with a full package with an itinerary (on-ground transportation, accommodation and activity fees), there’s no denying that you will save money, time and most importantly travel comfortably and reach safely to which ever destination you will be going to.
We at Tristar Africa Skimmer Safaris offer a wide range of car rental services in Uganda at pocket friendly rates that suit our client’s budget as well personal interests. Check out the list of services below to help you explore the country with no worries.

Rent A Car – Ditch the public transportation means that include passenger taxi locally called matatus, boda bodas and rent a private car from a trusted agency. Book a car that suits the number of people you are traveling with, can accommodate the amount of cargo your carrying and most importantly handle the terrain of the destination you are visiting. You can rent a sedan or 4×4 car to self drive Uganda or book a driver to take you around, the choice is yours

Hire A Driver – The self drive road trip may be a cheaper and more private option but also has it’s bad side especially if it’s your first driving in Uganda. You risk getting lost or even worse breaking traffic rules unknowingly. For a much safer and comfortable tour in Uganda, it’s best to leave the driving and car maintenance to your personal driver who knows the way around and will help you with the cargo, cleaning the car plus repairing in-case of breakdown.

Airport Transfer – This is a car rental service not only ideal for first time travelers but also tourists who have been to Uganda before. You don’t have to worry about how you will get to your hotel/ residence in Kampala or anywhere in Uganda when your plane touches down, all this is covered when you book an airport transfer with an agency prior to your arrival. The driver will be waiting for you upon your arrival ready to drive you to the city helping you avoid getting stressed searching for means at the airport in your jet lag mood.
