Uganda Driving and car hiring Information/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 takes out Personal Accident Insurance inclusive of Medical Repatriation, from the point of departure. This is because this is not covered under the vehicle’s Insurance coverage.Car Hire services are also available with several companies providing car hiring services. Due to robbery and car hiring companies prefer renting them with drivers, but self drive services are also available. All vehicles have Full Comprehensive Insurance coverage and the client is liable to a charge depending on the car for any damage sustained by the vehicle during the hire period in case of self drive. Only those with a valid International License, 23 years old and holding a valid Full driving license for a period of more than 2 years are allowed self-Drive, with Full Comprehensive Insurance.
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 a about less than a km is around 1000 Uganda shillings ($ 0.5 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 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. Its one great experience to ride on one but its 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.
