Driver / guide rates

Hello,

To organize my budget for a two weeks trip in Uganda,

I need to know the price charged by a good driver / guide

with a 4X4 vehicle like a super custom.

I have children, I need someone experienced, trustful.

Who could give me the price per day?

Is it more expensive, better with a Landcruiser?

Is it better to get the price with fuel included or not?

Thanks for your answers.

Better with Rav4 and the fuel consumption is less and it can serve the same purpose a land cruiser .. You can get one at $75 with a driver/guide.

Thanks for your answer, but we are four and with the driver...adding to ranger in parks...

Rav4 is too small if we add luggages. What is the price for a bigger vehicle?

My dear you once you travel with children you need a spacious car,i think a supercustom or a van does it better than even a land cruiser & even fuel friendly thus low costs, you will of course have luggage so I think i this one is a better option.

You asked if its better to do it with fuel. Now we can advise you on fuel only if you tell us where you will be travelling for those two weeks. But the only first trick is getting a spacious 4x4 van / supercustom which is both fuel and hire cost friendly than a land cruiser yet they can do exactly the same work.

Now among the companies you should try is AFRI-FRONTIERS,they have their offices just at the ENTEBBE AIRPORT, our NGO.known as pathfinder international hires 4x4 vans / supercustoms from them to up country at $50 ( us dollas) per day with nice reliable drivers.

Thank you for all your answers! I know an independant driver too.

He drove me and my family many times when I was living as an expatriate in Uganda.

That's good when you want to organize your trip by yourself and not

go through a tour operator. He is flexible and drives carefully, which is

precious. His prices are around 110-120 usd per day ( depending the car

you choose )plus fuel. You can write to me if you need his contact .
