Uganda safaris are part of many travelers’ bucket lists for those who wish to travel to Africa, however, do you actually know which kind of vehicle you need for your trip? A safari is an expedition to seeing wildlife in their natural habitat and definitely this will mean traveling long distances to places of different terrain. Whether you opt for self drive car hire or take a guided safari, you need to know about that car that will take you through your safari. For all you need to know for your safari in Uganda, here is why you need a safari vehicle for a Uganda safari suitable for that kind of planned safari.
Safari vehicles are designed with maximum possible comfort on Uganda’s up country bumpy and dusty roads. Though said to be comfortable, a 4×4 safari Landcruiser is the best option for tourists travelling up country for a Uganda wildlife safari to distant safari parks like Kidepo Valley National Park. Even for a gorilla trekking safari to either Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park then a 4×4 wheel drive is vital.
Safari vehicles are equipped with comfortable seats, a first aid kit, windows, and storage for your luggage. This makes your travel more comfortable rather than traveling by public means. In addition, every passenger has their own window seat for proper aeration and comfort.
Safari vehicles have a pop-up roof that allows a 360-degree game viewing during your game drive on your Uganda wildlife safari and making photography easier.
Each safari vehicle is equipped with an inverter and extension so you can charge your electronics while on the move.
Safari vehicles go through regular maintenance checks that include oil checks, fluid checks, electronics checking, new tires (if necessary), and any additional maintenance. This makes the travel safer.
When you hire a safari vehicle from a safari company, it come along with a Uganda safari driver guide who takes you throughout the trip. These guides are fluent in English and in any need for a translator one can always be hired. Their knowledge and professionalism make your safari easier than going out alone.
