The multi-functional SUVs can carry between 5 to 7 passengers with space for cargo in the rear. Some of the most popular SUVs for hire perfect for families include the Rav4, Harrier, Ipsum, Noah, Forester among others and rental prices range from as low as US$ 45 to US$ 65 per day with driver excluding fuel.

The station wagons can seat between 5 to 6 passengers comfortably and can handle any type of terrain making them the perfect cars for families planning to visit the national parks or remote destinations in Uganda.

4- Minibuses – If you plan on traveling as two or more families, then you should book a mid-sized bus and forego vans. A minibus can carry between 28 to 3o passengers but normally doesn’t have a cargo compartment so you have to pack light as the roof racks cant accommodate huge cargo. You can rent a coaster bus in Uganda and explore the city, national parks or any other destinations given the bus has a 4 wheel drive mechanism that allows it to pass through tough terrain, muddy, slippery & steep slopes. Coaster bus rental prices range from US$ 140 to 160 per day with a driver excluding fuel.
