Even though some of the travellers choose the guided safaris through travel agencies, and others choose to drive their own adventures by hiring a 4×4 car in Kampala. This has led to the organisation of many self drive car rental agencies in the city. Below are the top 4 popular rentals for self-drive safaris in Uganda.
