Self Drive in uganda

Self Drive  in uganda tours are the perfect way to see visit the highlights of uganda at your own pace in a limited amount of time.  Fly from each major destination to Entebbe, then tour their local sightseeing attractions by driving a rental car.
Some Ugandan destinations that are perfect for local road trips are along the famous Road in uganda.

Self-drive holidays are a satisfying way to travel around uganda. Travel as you please, plan your own itinerary and explore as far as you want. uganda has a good network of well-maintained roads and highways and, for the more intrepid, quite a few dusty tracks to take you into the wilderness jungles of Bwindi, Isasha and the must dusty and dry roads of kidepo.

Driving laws

Ugandan drive on the left hand side of the road. The maximum speed limit in cities and towns is from 30 km/h (32mph) and 80-100 km/h (62mph) on country roads and highways, unless signs indicate otherwise.  Speed limits are strictly enforced.   Strict drink-driving laws apply and it is compulsory for drivers and passengers to wear seat belts at all times.

Driving licenses

A vigilant  tourist may drive in uganda on a valid drivers license for the same class of vehicle. Licenses must be carried when driving, in addition to a valid passport. If the drivers license is not in the English language, the visitor must carry a translation with the permit. An International Drivers Permit is not sufficient by itself and must be accompanied by a valid drivers permit and a passport.

Tourism police

The Uganda tourism Authority is affiliated with motoring organizations in most countries of the world. This entitles visitors to  roadside emergency breakdown service, travel guides, route maps, information books and touring information. For information and assistance contact the uganda tourism police or the police directly in case of anything the police may be near you and of help as first as possible.

Petrol (gas)

Petrol in uganda comes in leaded and unleaded grades and is sold by the  a liter. Petrol costs between $1 - 2 per liter. LPG gas and diesel is also available. Petrol stations are very many and can be found in most of the major cities and they work 24/7. Most will  not accept major international credit cards will prefer uganda shilling and some may take dollars though this is the smallest number.
