Self-drive tours including accomodation

Explore Uganda on a self-drive tour with accommodation included. This option is perfect if you want to experience the privacy and flexibility of self-drive, but with the reassurance of knowing you are following a logical, well-thought-out route with overnight stays in the most beautiful lodges. 

Of course, you can also opt to go with a driver-guide and enjoy a guided road trip in Uganda. You still remain in charge of your own holiday program.  

We design a well-paced and varied itinerary for your road trip in Uganda and take care of the reservation and payment of all accommodations and the gorilla and chimp trekking permits if desired. The lodges we select are hand-picked. We select outstanding places and favor eco-conscious boutique hotels with the best price-quality ratio. The team of Roadtrip Africa who deals with Uganda have all lived, for several years, in Uganda. We know the country inside out.  

We do not work with intermediaries. Hotel Reservations, car rental and roadside assistance are all handled by the Roadtrip Africa team. Hence no false promises. It also means we're able to offer the most competitive rates.
