    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.
    Great safari with Charis We booked a Toyota Prado and driver (Charis) with Your Drive Uganda for our epic 14 day adventure in Uganda June 1-15, 2023. After we crossed the border from Rwanda, he picked us up in Lake Mutanda, and from there we went to Bwindi for gorilla trekking, Mburo Lake, Queen Elizabeth park, Kibale for the chimps, Murchison Falls, Ziwa rhino sanctuary and ended in Entebbe for our flight home. Charis was a great driver and guide, expertly navigating the roads, some of which are pretty rough, and he got us where we were going safely. He’s enthusiastic and fun to be around. I’d highly recommend Charis and Your Drive Uganda for your next safari. Unforgettable experience.
    Toyota 4x4 - the best choice to drive around Uganda If you are looking for a budget but reliable option for car rental, you should try 'Your Drive Uganda'. The Toyota 4X4 that we rented did not look fancy but it served the purpose. We traveled from Entebbe until Bwindi, then up to Fort Portal, and then back to Entebbe. Lots of dirt roads and challenging driving situations. During the 10 days trip, we had only a flat tire, nothing else. The company brought the car to our accommodation on day 1 and they also picked it up on the last day.
    Amazing Trip with Charis For the first time in my life to enjoy a road trip with my big guy Charis (driver)....don't remember any dull moment with him.....He's so professional with the roads and we enjoyed his vibe..I would recommend him anyday...anytime...The vehicle was in good shape..So yeah keep it up Charis..much love from Judi and Will...Thanks to Your Drive Uganda..No regrets!!!!!

Pius went with us on our trip from Kampala to Murchison Falls, drove us trough the park and after the trip he brought us back to the airport on time. We all felt really safe and the car had enough space for 3 passengers and a lot of luggage.
