Very good experience We rented a car with driver for 14days from Kigali to Kampala. We had a really good experience from beginning to end. Pius - our driver - was reliable, very helpful and very friendly. It was a pleasure travelling with him. The Toyota Prado with Popup roof was a good car on the rough roads and on the game drives. Would recommend.

Finally a reliable 4 x 4 hire! Having hired many 4 x 4's over the years, finally found a company with a vehicle that was well maintained and performed perfectly at a good rate/day. Titus and the team looked after us well, were very responsive and flexible. Would highly recommend.
Great and easy car rental We rented a Toyota Landcruiser Prado and were very happy with it. Organizing the car rental with Titus and his company couldn’t have been easier, they were very flexible to adjust the dates to our trip and even offered us to drop off the car in Kigali and send someone to drive it back to Entebbe. The car was in very good condition and we didn’t have any issues with it, even on difficult roads. We would definitely rent a car with them the next time we’re in Uganda and recommend them to everyone! Thank you to Charles for the pick up as well, greetings to Maralia!

good experience in Uganda with rooftop tent We rented a 4x4 vehicle with a rooftop tent from Your Drive Uganda for a 14-day journey through Uganda. Overall, our experience with Your Drive Uganda was satisfactory. Titus was prompt and reliable in his responses. For instance, when we had a flat tire and had to purchase a replacement, we were reimbursed without any complications. The car was acceptable by African standards, and the rooftop tent, while showing signs of use, met our needs. We were provided with a Toyota Prado equipped with a powerful engine, but this also meant it had higher fuel consumption. We traveled during the rainy season, and both the vehicle and tent held up well in the rain. In general, we had a good experience and a great time. We had hoped to visit Rwanda but couldn't due to missing documents. We wish there had been more effort to make it possible and clearer communication since we had inquired beforehand. One tip: The website states a small fridge is included, but it's an extra $5 per day. We didn't use it, and it worked out fine without it.

Difficult roads which the Land Cruisers helped us navigate We did a trip of 21 days in Uganda and decided to rent a Land Cruiser for 15 of the 21. We drove across the west of the country and saw so many animals. The cars were rugged, even though there were a few hiccups along the way, we got safely everywhere, without much worrying. The camping gear let us always stay in the nature, which made for some beautiful photos.
Great service, great people, fair price! Six friends and I rented two cars for a period of 20 days for doing safaris in the west of Uganda. We had a very good and pleasant experience over all! We initially rented two Toyota landcruisers of which only one had a pop-up roof. However, since we were having a good contact with Titus (the company owner) and a collegue (Herman), Titus quickly equiped the second car with a pop-up roof as well which was incredibly nice during the safaris!! The cars were in good state, we didn't experience any mechanical problems during our whole trip! Additionally Titus equipped the cars with all required camping gear for the seven of us at a minimal extra cost. I would strongly recommend contacting YourDriveUganda for your next trip to Uganda. A great service for a fair price! ~Kenzie

Good service Titus was very supportive in arranging gorilla permits and a car for our roadtrip. The tent we hired unfortunately was too small for us; I recommend you to check before you leave Entebbe/Kampala. The car bottom was quite low, even lower than typical for a RAV4, recommend to get it fixed higher for safari use. Note that the contract doesn't allow you to drive at night. The car was affordable but also a bit noisy.

Excellent We’ve used Titus 3-4 times and never had issues. Reliable and convenient collection and drop of vehicle at Entebbe airport, with some local tips from the driver as well!
There are drivers, there are good drivers and there is Pius; Pius Besigye, the best! From the beginning a good and fast communication about the possibilities that Your Drive Uganda could offer us. Also a quick response on all our questions. We rented a Safari Van for our family of 6 people. With a driver. And then we met the driver; Pius. A good and save driver but above all a beautiful person. And a proud young father. In 17 days he became a member of the family, with his a:dvices, humor, stories, philosophy and many other talents. ( such as golf, eating local food:) ) Pius made our journey to an unforgettable adventure trip through beautiful Uganda.
