The Pearl of Africa is one of the most known African countries where travel and tourism is getting more popular with more people realizing impressive moments during their trips here. Road trips in Uganda can be done by renting a car for self drive but a guided tour that involves car rental and a safari driver is more insightful when taking on a trip around this beautiful country.
Tellanza Car Rental has been organizing both self drive and driver guided road trips and we present to you some of the major reasons why you need to hire a driver in Uganda for your next road trip
A professional driver is familiar with almost every route in the country. One may not be certain of the places that they are visiting hence need to carry travel maps. However, when you hire a car with a driver, be assured of getting to the planned places of attraction or visit without wondering where to make the next turn. The driver even knows an alternative route in case of bad road conditions of the main roads.
Uganda is a heterogeneous country with over 50 tribes in different locations of the country. If you can speak English, then you are good to go around the Pearl of Africa, however much some people especially in remote areas still do not go beyond their local languages. Travelling with a driver who can communicate to the locals is important because you may need assistance along the way, need to find out more about an item before purchasing it and more.
From the time you meet the safari driver, they become responsible of your safety throughout the trip. They must ensure that they drive safe, know best places to buy items required such as snacks, be aware of where you are at all times while at the destination and share precautions in areas like national parks with dangerous animals. In addition, a driver helps to quickly seek help in case of accidents.
To get impressive game drives
If you want to enjoy wildlife viewing in Uganda national parks like Murchison falls national park, Queen Elizabeth national park, Kidepo Valley national park and more, then you need to hire a driver. Driving in the park requires concentration on the road hence having a limited chance to look around. With a driver, you have enough time to view the scenery, stand and view through the pop up roof and watch the animals freely.
Time management and high level of satisfaction
A professional driver is aware of the schedules of activities and they know the time at which to leave their accommodation facilities to head for the activities. They communicate to tourists about the following day’s programme including the time at which to wake up and prepare. This saves time and helps not to miss out some activities. Without a driver, you could miss some things and end up waiting until the next day hence more expenses. Drivers also share a lot with clients regarding every attractions and things of interest during travel thus a high level of satisfaction.
