Type of Car to Use while considering Car Rental in Uganda for 17 days
There are a number of vehicles available, and for starters, we consider the fact that are you looking at a Self Drive in Uganda Car Rental or a Car Rental in Uganda with a driver. For a vehicle with a driver, we recommend a 4×4 Land Cruiser Hard Top or a 4×4 Land Cruiser Prado. This also depends on the number of people. The 4×4 land Cruiser Hard Top would ideally take any number from 1 to 7 with guaranteed window seats. However, the Land Cruiser Prado would take a maximum of 3 people with guaranteed window seats. The same number of people that would fit in a Toyota Rav4. In case you wish to go on a Self Drive Car Rental in Uganda, then we would highly recommend the land Cruiser GX, Prado or the Toyota Rav4. These vehicle are recommended because they have been tested over time on the Ugandan roads. So depending on your budget, choose any of the above.
