An off-road vehicle aka overland or adventure vehicle is a 4×4 car built to handle both gravel and non-gravel surfaces. The off-road vehicles feature a 4-wheel drive mechanism with high ground clearance, raised tires and flexible suspension which enables the vehicle to traverse even the roughest of terrain, through flooded roads and slippery surfaces.
If you are planning to safari Uganda and require a strong 4×4 car, then an off-road vehicle will do the job. The majority of national parks and tourist attractions in Uganda are situated in some of the most remote regions of the country and if you are not driving an off-road vehicle, then be prepared for a disastrous road trip filled with stop-over cause of either getting stuck in a ditch, failing to ascend a steep hill or even engine failure.
