Car rental

Our fleet

Our fleet of cars for hire in Uganda consists of Toyota Land Cruiser and Toyota RAV4 vehicles - both reliable 4x4 vehicles widely used in Uganda and perfect for self-drive tours.  All our rental cars in Uganda are owned by us and we never subcontract from third parties. Be aware that these vehicles are not new, so the quality of the audio or air conditioning is not comparable to a new car you might drive at home. These sturdy vehicles are just right for the bush! 

Each car is serviced at our workshop after every trip and we have a close network of upcountry workshops for minor onsite repairs. In the unlikely event that you have a breakdown, rest assured that we offer 24/7 roadside assistance and always have a replacement vehicle ready. Our customer service is unparalleled!

Toyota RAV4 - 5 doors

The RAV4 is Uganda's most widely used 4x4. Sporty, compact and robust, as well as easy and economical to drive. It’s automatic and in permanent four-wheel-drive. Fuel consumption is very low compared to other 4x4 models: around  10-12 km/litre. Petrol costs between $1 – $1.20. 

The 5-door RAV4 can fit up to four people. If you're camping in Uganda with three adults or more, the Landcruiser would be the car to choose. It is NOT possible to travel to Kidepo and Karamoja in a RAV4; the Landcruiser is required for these areas.

Toyota RAV4 - 3 doors

This is the 5-door RAV4's smaller brother, but other than size, there are no differences between the two. Both RAV4s are automatic and have the same engine. The smaller 3-door model fits two people with camping gear.

If you are travelling with three people or more, choose the 5-door model or Landcruiser. It's NOT possible to travel to Kidepo and Karamoja areas in a RAV4; the Landcruiser is required.
