Excitement, briefing and laughter are some of the verbs explaining the self-drive adventure experience in Uganda. The trip begins with a warm welcome from one of Uganda’s car rental company agents at the airport introducing the highlights of the adventure before you. Together with the agent, you go through a thoroughly inspection of the car ready to be used on the road. All to wait is to sign a document that contains the terms and conditions for usage of the car and present to the agent your passport book and a photocopy of your driving license, of course accompanied by a deposit fee or the whole sum fee for the car rental service if you had not cleared earlier. Only a short time and patience is needed to go through this simple exercise and begin your awaited self-drive adventure in Uganda.

The response from the office is to wait for long hours up to when the company’s mechanic in the area you got stuck arrives and the journey resumes normally after fixing the problem. This becomes worse in the weird hours of the night, risky and insecure because you did not know the insurance policy of company and you too did not come with your insurance policy.
