The most reliable 4x4 Land cruiser I and two friends rented a 4x4 Land Cruiser V8 for business meeting in Eastern Uganda "Jinja" for a week. First, the driver "Charis" delivered the vehicle to us at Entebbe airport at no extra charge. We drove to Jinja and enjoyed the high comfort of this vehicle. It was very reliable and we drove at zero mileage. They have the best cars and I recommend them for your next car rental in Uganda. Your Drive Uganda is the best
OUR DREAMS CAME TRUE , WE SAW GORILLAS We never knew what to see when we made our booking with your drive oganda , we hired a safari van for our 22 days in oganda safari and everything went as expected, the company offered us the best driver guide over all guides, Charis was super and reliable, very smart and kind, he always made sure we are fine, made sure we see almost everything, starting from nature ,all animals in their wildness where seen, we tested the true African wildness, we saw more than we expected on our safari, thank you Charis , thank you your drive oganda.

Perfect car for my road-trip This has been so far one of the best car rental in Uganda service provider I have used. I hired a Land Cruiser Prado for a roadtrip in uganda and this worked beyond my expectations for the entire period. They delivered the car while it was clean and everything I had requested for was brought along with the car. I would definitely recommend them and use Your drive Uganda next time.

Amaizing trip with Sulaiman! It was an unforgettble experience spending 4 days in Uganda and having an experienced, rofessional and yet friendly driver Sulaiman. It was a business trip and it happened that I got one unplanned free day to explore buties of Uganda. Sulaiman recomended places to visit, and was en excellent tour guide! I was impressed with his driving skills on the busy roads in and around Kampala. He made this trip truly special! He went an extra mile and helped me to find and get a traditional dress! I highly recomend this company and their professional services!

Roadtrip trough Uganda in 03/24 We booked our trip with "Your Drive Uganda", we had several contacts with Titus (think he's the head of back office) and everything worked out as it should. He's a friendly, smart guy and always helpful. Our driver was Mr. Pius aka Mr. Fyah, he fit in perfectly with our group and showed us the real Uganda, not always these touristy events. We met locals, ate local food und saw some unknown insider tips. We didn't want the typical vacation experiences and he fullfilled our dream. It was a real pleasure and we truly met a friend in uganda with pius. We can recommend "Your Drive Uganda" as company and provider. Recommedation 5/5 Mr. Pius/ Mr. Fyah (our group's nickname for Mr. Pius) rating is a 10 out of 5, he made our trip legendary. We wish him all the best and hope that we can meet him again on our next visit to Uganda.
