Plan your route around this captivating country and then book cheap car hire in Uganda with TravelSupermarket...
Uganda is famous for its mountain gorillas, which tourists come from across the world to see. Landing at Entebbe Airport (EBB), travellers should book car hire in Uganda and tour the stunning scenery of Africa's most diverse country.
The wide biodiversity of Uganda means it is an ideal country to explore the wildlife in its natural environment, whether it is lions roaming the plains of the savannah in the east on the Kenyan border, or hippos and crocodiles cavorting in tropical rivers while primates play in the equatorial rainforests. The country boasts thousands of species of animals and birds as well as half of Africa's forests, hot springs and waterfalls.
Most people visiting Uganda are aiming to see the gorillas while trekking through the mountains, and so the best time to travel is January and February as well as June to September. They're the drier months in an equatorial country with pronounced rainy seasons.

Uganda is home to more than half of the world's surviving mountain gorillas. Tourists seek out Unesco World Heritage Site the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where the endangered gorillas live in their natural habitat. Primates abound too in the Rwenzori Mountains, which is the highest mountain range in Africa. They're commonly known as the Mountains of the Moon.
The waterfalls on the White Nile near the city of Jinja have, since 1954, been submerged together as the Owen Falls Dam accommodating a hydroelectric power station and supplying electricity to the country.
The most famous of Ugandan waterfalls is Murchison Falls, commonly thought to be the world's most powerful waterfall. The Sipi Falls are a collection of three waterfalls on the slopes of Mt Elgon.
For a landlocked country, Uganda has vast lakes including the Kyoga, Albert and Edward lakes but the most famous is Lake Victoria, which feeds the White Nile and the Katonga River, near Uganda's capital city of Kampala.
