Tips & Guidelines to Hiring Rental Car in Uganda

There are so many conditions that would make a traveler hire a car in Uganda. It could be that he/she is looking for an airport transfer, self drive safari, family vacation, a school tour, business trip or he might be in need of it for a date with his girlfriend. Luckily enough, car rental in Uganda is becoming cheaper and it is so easy to find that would give the best services at a cheap rate. These can be found on the internet as there hundreds of car rental websites on the internet. These are all yearning to deliver car hires services to travelers within Uganda and outside it.

It is not every car hire services, the traveler get will give him the comfort, there are some factors that one has to put into consideration that can suit his/her nature of travel and also needs at large.

The size of the rental car

A variety of sizes of cars are always being offered to clients by the car rental agencies and the choice is always upon the client to select the best vehicle possible.  Car hire agencies have compact cars like premiums, Toyota RAV4 and these normally carry about 2-3 people, there are also minibuses like the Toyota super custom  and the safari van of which carry 6 people and 9 people respectively and there are coaster buses that carry around 28 people. Not forgetting there are also SUVs like the land cruiser that carry 4 people. So it is in accordance to the number of people, the customer is traveling with that he/she chooses the best car that suits their needs. For instance if one is a sole traveler going for a gorillas safari trip Uganda why not choose a car like a Toyota RAV4 that is cheap but with  a 4WD that combat the roads that lead to Bwindi impenetrable national park.

Rental car features

The storage space available in the car and air conditioning system are some of the features you can consider when hiring a car in Uganda. They can determine comfort levels and convenience during travel. Also important to check is the physical condition of the bus so that you do not end up being held accountable for damages that did not happen when the rental car was under your care. Inspect the vehicle you prefer before hiring and if possible go for a test drive if you will be the one driving just to be sure of the condition.

Availability of chauffeur services

When hiring a car in Uganda, there are two options given to the client that is a self drive option or a car with a chauffeur. A company with both option gives, the client to choose want is best for him/her as sometimes the client may want to take a self drive but deep down he/she is not confident enough to drive on the Ugandan roads and he/she might need a chauffeur at the eleventh hour of the expedition. So it is better to know if the chauffeurs are available in case the client wants one.

Rental car restrictions

Car hire companies has terms and conditions at which they hire their vehicles to their esteemed customers. Remember, they do this for the good of save guarding their cars from getting damage and stolen and also to keep the customer vigilant of taking care of the car. The common terms and conditions are limited mileage, early return, fuel refill policy and insurance policy among the special ones. It is better to hire a car from a company with fewer restrictions on acquiring their car.

Rental periods

Some car hire companies have a minimum and maximum period at which their rent their vehicle so it is better to know the shortest and longest period in that one the renter sets up the timeframe that is best to hire the car at a cheaper price. Normally in Uganda when, the customer rents a car for more than a week, he/she is given a discount for a long reservation.

Car rentals Uganda brings comfort and convenience to the traveler’s journey and it is commendable to choose a car hire company whose terms and conditions easies your requirements and nature of travel.

Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

Have taken amazing African safari vacations from various parts of Africa, i can conclude that gorilla trekking in Uganda is exceptional of all safaris. Many adventure tourists plan to be part of this holiday for a couple of months and fill very happy when finally done. The main adventure and attraction of Uganda are the “Mountain Gorillas”, rare great apes that offer a thrilled experience to whoever visits Bwindi forest in south Western Uganda. What I love about this adventure is that despite the numerous tourists who show up for particular treks, just after one will wish to go back to jungle and see the attractive primates again.

There is a lot to experience during the gorilla tour and the experience is ever cherished. When one meets or sports a silver back gorilla (the dominant male in a group) in the jungle, the next move is how to get a nice photo shot or record a memorable video for memories. Always the moment of silence is observed by every tracker and the serenity forest beauty covers everyone as the 1 hour of photography and observations roams. Meeting up with mountain gorillas isn’t easy due to busy schedules’ and pricy gorilla permit prices. However, the Uganda Wildlife Authority made it easy for primate lovers to fulfill their dreams by running gorilla permit promotions and discounts in the month of April, May and November every year.

You may not have tracked mountain gorillas before but if given a try you will be shocked meeting the sliver back. Surely it feels different unlike meeting other wildlife in any game park. The challenging forest walk, sweat and hassles inside the thick wild forest make the activity worthy and more interesting. The excitement can make you remember the very first days you placed a gorilla trek request to your travel planner and even give thanks to whoever made your dream come true. Going off point on gorilla tracking holidays is rare unless otherwise. Imagine a giant ape passing in front of your face and later chills in tree branches as other family members follows. Interestingly mountain gorillas behave just like humans especially the head of family and the kids. One can notice mutual love parents show their young ones by mere looking at a silverback back, mother gorillas and their young ones. I think have said enough about mountain gorillas, their humble character, giant smile and social behaviors towards humans. However, have just said little of the things one does during a Uganda gorilla tracking safari in Bwindi forest. Other plenty activities to choose from include nature walk, birding, waterfall hike, Community walks, island exploration etc.

The best way to enjoy a Uganda gorilla tracking holiday is to book your gorilla permit in advance, followed by accommodation and then apply for a tourist Uganda visa online. Once done you free to embark on your trip to Uganda to see mountain gorillas. If your trip is private and tailor made relax at your lodge and wait for the trip organizers to make it work. But if you go backpacking, book you bus ticket a day before travel to avoid missing out on the early bird buses which normally leave the capital quite early in the morning. Remember from Kampala to Bwindi forest its approximately nine hours to the park true reason for one to leave the capital early in order to reach at the park late in the evening.

For independent travelers, it is advisable to book right gorilla sector accommodation to avoid getting disorganized on the morning of the trek. Carry right clothes, comfortable walking shoes, sun cream and insect repellent. You may not wish to spend more but getting from your lodge to the briefing point may be hard so organize for that small expenditure just in case. Lodges, hotels and campsites help in such arrangements for their clients in need. Make sure you book gorillas permits of your desired sector and park. Mountain gorillas live in also Rwanda and Democratic republic of Congo so one can as well do  gorilla tracking tour in either Congo or Rwanda.

Gorilla Trekking: A Bush Walk Never to Forget

In the whole world, it’s only in three countries that host the mountain gorillas; Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. These trips are organized to see the rare famous mountain gorillas. In Uganda, gorilla tracking is done in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, both in south western Uganda. Within Rwanda, gorilla visits are conducted in the volcanoes national park while in the Democratic Republic of Congo trips are conducted in theVirunga National Park.

Uganda is believed to have half of mountain gorillas with the largest population in Bwindi Impenetrable forest national park. Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park follows, Virunga National Park and the smallest number of population is found in Mgahinga National Park.

Mountain gorillas in these three countries are the closest relatives for people as they share 98% of the human genes and this makes them more of human beings.

In Uganda, gorilla trekking is done in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, a protected area lying within a distance of about 8-9 hours drive from Kampala. There are lots of things to see on this trip! Travelers get the chance of having stop over’s like at the equator for snaps, Igongo cultural centre for more cultural information and many other attractions encountered en-route that all add to the total experience of a tourist.

The gorilla permit is sold at USD600 in the peak season and USD350 in the low season. This permit allows a tourist to interact with the mountain gorillas in a maximum of 1 hour and a group of 8 people maximum is allowed to interact with one gorilla family per day.

In addition, gorilla trekking is done in the morning hours after the briefing from the responsible ranger/guide, here travelers are given advice concerning the dos and don’ts as they interact with gorillas, they are told that meeting gorillas in not a must and can take more time than they expect depending on where the gorilla family shifted to that very day, they are also reminded to keep a distance of 7 meters from the gorillas, not to feed them and touching their mouth when they cough. All these are to ensure that the rare species are safe and free from danger as they are so susceptible to human diseases.

Mountain gorilla trekking in Bwindi is a real jungle and travelers are required to have walking sticks and comfortable boots for easy movements, its moving through the virgin forest with no signage, path, lots of under grown vegetation, thorns, rocks, bugs and slippery stuff that requires one to be physically fit and commitment. However, it is as interesting as one faces these famous creatures’ bushes demonstrating like a real family of human beings, a gorilla family is led by a dominant silver back a real monster like seeing Kong Kong in real life.

The accommodation in the national is very good in a real natural way, lodges are sometimes in form of tents but services offered are very awesome and excellent which makes the trip in addition to gorillas memorable.

When we travel to Rwanda, gorilla trekking is done in the Volcanoes National Park just 2 hour drive from the air port ok Kigali, this short distance saves travelers who have limited time in that they can arrive and trek gorillas on the same day, this is not the case in Uganda.

More still, the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda has bamboo type of vegetation, this is not so dense and dark allowing light penetration and easy access of gorillas in their habitats, also walking through the forest is easier because of limited under growth and thorny bushes.

The gorilla permit in Rwanda is sold at USD750 which is quite expensive as compare to Uganda at 600usd, however the short distance travelled help to cover-up the travel expenses which in turn make the trip affordable.

In conclusion therefore, gorilla trekking is the most enjoyable tourism activity one can participate in only done in Uganda, Rwanda and the democratic republic of Congo a traveler can never forget such experience in his/her travel life time and all travelers should therefore endvour to have such beautiful experience.

Save More on Car Rentals in Rwanda When You Avoid These

There are a number of things you must avoid when it comes to car rental, things that can save you money in the long run and ensure you only pay for what you were quoted and not for any unexpected extras.

One of the prevalent mistakes people make when arranging car rental for their next holiday is to take out extra insurance. Insurance is expensive and reputable car hire  companies will provide you with comprehensive insurance. Remember comprehensive insurance only covers vehicles and does not cover the people’s lives. Speak to your own insurance company to identify if your current policy will cover you when on vacation in foreign Countries like African continent. Even if you do have to pay extra in excess, it may be a cheaper solution in the long run.

Another common mistake is when you receive a car rental with half a tank of fuel, ensure you return it with the same amount of fuel. Many car rental companies will provide you with enough fuel to get you to your hotel or to the next petrol station, but the contract will advise you are to return the vehicle with the same amount of fuel. If you don’t, the car rental company will charge you and in most instances, this charge is a premium rate as they have to send someone out with the vehicle to buy the fuel. It is far different in Africa from that of Europe where they give out vehicles with full tanks of fuel and you return full, In Africa most companies give out when it is almost empty and you will return the same. They won’t refund you when you return the vehicle with some fuel be it quarter, half or full tank.

Don’t pay for extra services. When it comes to self drive in Rwanda, you will be given the vehicle you have chosen with the additions included. But what about a baby seat? What about GPS? Some companies charge for these extras at a daily rate, which soon adds up. If you have a baby or child, take your car seat from home, you can put it in with your other luggage and it won’t cost you, in fact it will only save you money. The same applies with your GPS, it may be cheaper to download maps for another country than to pay the rate the car rental company charges per day for rental of one of their devices, especially if it’s a country you visit or want to visit on a regular basis.

Before you hop in your car rental and drive off to your hotel to start your vacation, ensure you do a thorough inspection and write down and photograph any existing damage. You can write down the damage on the acceptance sheet you sign when you collect the vehicle, ensuring you and the car rental company have a copy. This reduces the risk of you being charged for damage when you return the vehicle.

Don’t ever return your vehicle late. If you are driving a fair distance to return the vehicle, leave that bit earlier. Once you arrive late for your pick up then you may be charged for an additional day, even if you only returned the vehicle back an hour later than expected. Be on time and don’t take the risk.

An Encounter with the Virunga Gorillas

Mountain gorilla are endangered apes that were on the verge of extinction in the 1990’s because of the civil wars where their natural habitants had been turned into fighting grounds and hiding places for soldiers. After a lot of conservation efforts by the Rwandan government, the mountain gorilla population started increasing steadily and today volcanoes national park is a home to half of the total mountain gorilla population in the Virunga massif that extends from northwestern Rwanda, south western Uganda and southeastern DRC.

Mountain gorillas are some of human’s closest wild animals with over 98% of their DNA similar to humans. They prefer living in the forested mountain and are vegetarians that feed on plant leaves, shoots and wild fruits. They are mobile animals that move from one place to another as they look for fresh food ad for new places where they will spend a night.

Volcanoes national park has a total of 10 habituated mountain gorilla families. Each mountain gorilla family is tracked by a group of strictly 8 tourists every day, which they spend with one hour as they observe, take photographs and learn more about the life of these greatly endangered apes.

Tourists going for gorilla tracking first assemble at the national park headquarters very early in the morning where the local traditional dancers entertain them as they take a cup of hot tea or coffee. They are allocated to the mountain gorilla family they will be tracking then briefed about the safety procedures to follow while in the forest. Some of the safety procedures include

  • Following the guides instructions especially while in the forest
  • Keeping a reasonable distance a way from the mountain gorillas
  • Minimizing noise especially when in the presence of the mountain gorillas
  • Not using flash photography
  • Avoiding imitating the behavior of the mountain gorillas like beating the chest as it may send a wrong impression to the mountain gorillas.

After being briefed, the tourists are led to the forested mountains under the protection of two armed rangers. These carry guns they use to fire bullets to scare away other dangerous wild animals that could be encountered while tracking mountain gorillas. A hike through the forested mountains is very exciting with views of other wildlife species in the national park like birds.  The trek takes about 1 to 8 hours depending on the movement of the mountain gorillas. It’s a little hectic and a physically demanding activity however its always better for those who cannot hike for long distances to inform the guides or their tour operators early enough to ensure that they are allocated mountain gorilla families that can be got to after relatively shorter times of trek.

Alternatively there are porters for hire that can carry luggage and always help tourists to go move through the difficult parts of the forest. These porters can also carry some one on locally made stretchers up hill or down hill and can therefore be of great help in case their services are needed. They can be hired at about $10 to $15.

Mountain gorillas can be encountered at any time of the year however tracking can be more easy during the dry season because its always easy to move through the forests which may not be the case during the wet season. Tourists interested in mountain gorilla tracking should acquire permits that are sold at $750 each and can be obtained from the Rwanda development board or through a trusted tour operator.

Volcanoes national park can be got to by road transport from Kigali a drive that takes about 2 to 3 hours.

Planning a Gorilla Safari – 5 Things to Know

In a lifetime everyone has the right to encounter something out of the world, an experience that they will wish to take home with them, and just boastfully narrate to their relatives and friends in form of a deeply captivating story. Deciding to embark on a gorilla safari results in one of the few experiences that many people desire to have. The few who have experienced this still tell the same story but in different versions every day.

Yes for many, the climax of the trip to the gorillas is standing still and looking into the dark pensive eyes of the mountain gorillas is such a magical experience that will never fade off your memory! some travelers try to take a “selfie” with the mountain gorillas in the background, and share it with jealous friends. At that point, all your preparations have held truth; and all the nights of anxiety are no more. But what are those little things that might make the entire safari even more gratifying? Here is my short list;

  1. Make sure you travel at the right time of the year. If you are not so sure about your fitness levels, I advise travelling during the dry season when the soils aren’t boggy. The best months of the year to track the gorillas would be December to late February and from June to September during the dry season.
  2. Remember to book your permit in time, preferably before you set off. Due to the high demand, over 70 people travel to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park daily for the Uganda Gorilla Safari experience, while others are placed on hold. You surely don’t want to be among the miserable lot that has to wait.
  3. All Uganda’s gorilla tracking trailheads are traversed on foot, with some hikes lasting 8 hours. As humans are playful, the gorillas might decide to play hide and seek so hikers should check that they are basically fit to climb through the jungle even for long duration like these.
  4. The rains are rarely predictable, so tourists should pack a pair of solid shoes, preferably jungle boots, a jacket and an umbrella. On a sunny day I would advise you to travel with a fine cap or hat, sun glasses (in case you find that you need them), smear yourself with sunburn lotion, and also come along with a good insect repellant.
  5. The other thing to mind about when planning your safari is choosing the right tour operator. The criterion for choosing the tour operator is somewhat crazy, but basically a company with a good customer reputation would be a good choice. With the right tour operator you won’t have to worry about sleeping uncomfortably, or arriving later than 8am when the gorilla trekking exercise has commenced. These are just a few things that will complement your holiday and make it more enjoyable. A hint to search for the specialty tour operators who may know better about the process of organising a gorilla safari, choices of lodges and campsites where to stay and how to craft tour itineraries.

Virunga Gorilla

Gorilla Trekking in Mgahinga National Park

The most thrilling tourist activity in the Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is that of gorilla tracking, an activity that involve visitors hiking through the forest in search of the endangered mountain gorillas. Surprisingly, Mgahinga can be accesed by travelers taking tours in Rwanda given its location within the Virunga Ranges. This is the reason as to why there are many tour offers that combine gorilla watching in the Volcanoes National Park and Mgahinga National Park offered by several tour operators.

Within this magical park, there is only one habituated gorilla group that can be visited by tourists. Known as the Nyakagezi group, this is one of the oldest habituated gorilla in the history of gorilla tourism in Uganda and it consists of 9 members; 2 silver backs, 3 adult females, 2 juveniles and 2 infants. Though most travel books indicate that gorilla trekking in Mgahinga is unreliable because of the gorilla family escapades to Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, for more than two years the group has been settled within the park and a good number of tourists have gone gorilla tracking in the park.

Gorilla permits for Mgahinga National Park can be booked at the Uganda Wildlife Authority offices in Kamwokya Kampala or at the park headquarters. You can also book these passes through a recommended tour operator based in Uganda.

Planning a Gorilla Trek in Mgahinga National Park

Gorilla tracking is a vigorous activity that can take a full day. During this tour, you are led by a guide through the gorilla’s empire/tracks as he/she explains all about gorillas such as their ecology, movements and general behavior.

Please note:

Like gorilla tracking in other groups within Uganda, Rwanda and Congo, the success of seeing gorillas is NOT guaranteed despite the high chance of seeing them. Since they are wild animals living in the jangle, they don’t have a fixed routine; therefore finding them requires luck and the experienced of your guides. These guides know gorillas intimately since they habituate them, they will hence take you to the area where they saw them last. They may also be able to suggest how long the hike might take at the journey start.

Please note that you are free to ask guides to slow down if they are going too fast or if you want to have a rest, look at birds /flowers, and your guide shall wait for u.

DOS AND DON`TS

  • -It is advisable that you put on jangle shoes best for steep muddy slopes
  • -The weather is unpredictable and it can change any time. Please carry rain wear, sunscreen, a hut and sun glasses, as.
  • -You are advised to Carry water and food because this activity is lengthy and tiresome especially to first time trackers
  • -Once tracked, ensure that you keep 5m distance from Gorillas. If approached by one, back away slowly.
  • -Avoid pointing or waiving your arms- this can scare away annoy gorillas.
    please Move slowly and Keep your voice low/better if silent for better tracking
  • -When taking photos, ensure that your flash is off for can threaten gorillas.
