Getting Around

Getting around Uganda has never been easier – flexibility exists in use of private or public transport, with the improved transport network and extended communication facilities to even the remotest National Parks.
Traveling in Uganda is a true adventure. There are several ways to get around, and the option you choose will depend upon your time constraints and your budget. Travelling by road is the most accessible and cheapest way to travel, and public transport connects all major locations, and ventures far off the beaten track. For those short of time, domestic flights are available to many of the national parks.

 Tour Operators and Public Transportation

Buses, taxis, VIP vans and several touring trucks operated by individual tour operators are available to help travelers reach their destinations. Motorcycle taxis, known as boda-bodas, can always be used for short distances. Safety can be a concern so its not recommended to travel by boda-boda without a helmet. 

Self Drive

Self-drive options are best left for return visitors to the country and more seasoned travelers who are accustomed to driving in a variety of road conditions. You may find you are more comfortable leaving the driving to a Uganda safari driver guide who will also give you an interpretive commentary while you enjoy the scenic view.
