Uganda Driving and car hire Information, advice & tips

Driving in Uganda is on the left hand side. Visitors need to possess a valid international driving license to drive. Uganda has good passable roads, with road-signs (but not to all of them). There are several car hiring services in Uganda, however, it is convenient for visitors to have an International Driving License. Valid road licenses are endorsed at the Road Transport Office/revenue Authority offices in Kampala before hiring a car for self-drive.

Most car hiring companies recommend that the client take Personal Accident Insurance inclusive of Medical Repatriation, from the point of departure. This is because this is not covered under the vehicle Insurance. Car hire services are also available with several companies providing car rental services. Due to robbery and car, hiring companies prefer renting them with drivers, but self-drive services are also available though still very limited.

Kampala Motor bikes taxis/Boda-Bodas infomation/ tips

Motor bikes taxis normally below 125cc locally known as “Boda-Bodas” are supposed to help you move from point to the other in and around Kampala. The charge for about 1km is around 1500 Uganda shillings ($ 0.6 USD) but when they notice that you are a visitor and probably don’t know your way around they will always want to take advantage of you and charge a higher (almost double or even more) price.

The trick is to always bargain. They are very helpful in places where taxis do not exist and beating the Kampala city traffic jam. However, generally speaking, Boda-Bodas are very risky, claim lives the biggest causality turn over in Kampala hospitals and in case of any accident your body is hurt and bike broken. It is one great experience to ride on one but it’s also a different experience and time you are likely to spend in hospital. My personal advices to Uganda visitor to avoid and only use them when they have to, otherwise whoever uses them let it be at their own risk.
