Rwanda is a country in East African community with Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, south Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Rwanda is among the mountainous nations in Africa thus nick named “the land of a thousand hills”.
As far as tourism is concerned, Rwanda is one of the African countries with a rapid growing tourism sector. The scenic beauty of Rwanda, birds and wild animals make it fascinating for tourists. Since tourism is a leisure activity, tourists have freedom of choosing whether to hire a car for self-drive or enjoy a guided tour/ customized safari.
What is a customized tour?
It’s a kind of tour where the biggest percentage of the tourist’s needs is catered for by the tour company.
Self – drive tours – the biggest percentage of the tourist needs are catered for by her or him self. In other words, the guest drives him or herself from one destination to another for adventure.
In Rwanda, there are a number of companies offering car rental services however, 4×4 Rentals Uganda offers reliable services. We have a sales agent in Kigali – Rwanda who does most of the work on behalf of the company.

- Volcanoes national park
- Nyungwe National Park

At 4×4 rentals Uganda, we allow the visitor to decide how he or she want to travel, whether by self – drive or car with a driver
CAR HIRE IN RWANDA WITH A DRIVER
Rwanda is a country where laws are active and implemented so, to avoid being trapped by the traffic laws, better rent a car with a driver to be on a safer side. Most of our drivers are experienced, knows all the traffic rules in Rwanda and above all professional.
The nature of land in Rwanda also calls for car Rentals and driver because of being mountainous, inexperienced drivers can find it hard to maneuver. Some roads in Rwanda goes on meandering through hills and mountains which makes it difficult for foreign tourist to negotiate with mountainous corners of Rwanda thus car hire and a driver is the best choice.
The climate of Rwanda is characterized by rain especially from November to December and Late March to May. Much rain makes the roads slipper for foreign tourist to drive safely. Being mountainous, Rwanda receives relief rain falls which is characterized by thunder, lightning and snow hence making self- driving hectic.
Car rental with a driver saves time since there is no need to consult Google maps for directions. 4×4 Rentals drivers know all the routes and destinations liked by tourists. While on self- drive, guests waste time to find right ways to where they want to go and for that case, they may lose some scheduled activities like Gorilla trekking, chimpanzee trekking, golden monkey trekking, and Dian Fossey tomb tour among others.
Car hire with a drive makes the guest feel secure together with the car. In case of accident, the guest is less concerned and the driver can easily find solution in case of any mechanical problem. More so, when the car breaks down, the driver can communicate to us for rescue.
In case of a short scheduled tour like 1 day Gorilla trekking, it’s wise to rent a car with a driver to be able to reach in time. In most cases, 1 days Gorilla safaris starts from Kigali at around 4:30am and so, driving early morning when rushing can be hectic to foreign visitors.
Rwanda was colonized by French and so driving on right side originates from France. On the other hand, countries which were colonized by the British, drive on left hand side which confuses on self- drive. Driving on light hand side do confuses people from Britain.
In conclusion, car hires on self – drive and car rental with a driver are both commonly used in Rwanda. It depends of the choice and the budget of the guest.
