Why Self Drive Trips are not recommendable in Uganda some times
Most tourists who tour Uganda and go for Self-drive have been threatened and intimidated about the experience. Why?
Being that Uganda road rules are there but not /never implemented & neither are they followed, this makes it have a record of the highest road accidents & fatality levels in Africa thus not favorable for Uganda Safari self-drive.
Still roads in Uganda are not in good condition rather most of them are in very bad shape thus hindering your self-drive trips/safari. However, there has been a little bit of road improvement but still there exists potholes especially in the remote areas where tourism is operated in the country.
At times its far much better you leave the driving to us (Ugandans) because we know every corner of the country while on the road, being new in the country you could probably not even be aware of the new rules implemented on the roads, the signs and the importance of each.
Police Traffic stops is another as to why issue, because in this case you are most likely to meet police standing on the road side flagging you down, trust me if new in this country you may start asking yourself questions like what should I now do? So there you go allow us drive you.
There also several dangers of driving at night especially if new in the country. Drunk driving, driving without headlights and so all this calls for your extra carefulness while on the road at night.
All in all, when it comes to Uganda Safari Self Drive, there has occurred several hindrances that have limited tourists from reaching their long time dreams of touring Uganda, but before anything regarding this kind of safari think/consider the bad part of it otherwise you will get disappointed. However, this doesn’t imply that Uganda Safari Self-drive is impossible, No, infact there those who have had their successful conducted tours around the country.
