Whether you are driving your own car or a rental car in Uganda, it is important to respect the speed limits.

Have a good pair of binoculars/cameras

Be a good listener

It is amazing to listen to different sounds in the wild and it is a crazy environment at that point when you are in the middle of savanna protected area listening to lions as they roar, birds singing or listen to Kobs as they communicate to one another after spotting a predator.

Take a keen interest in the scavengers

The wilderness is crazy and accommodates variety of creatures. Don’t concentrate only specific creatures, bear in mind that scavengers also exist and they can be spotted around after the lion kill. You will notice hyenas, vultures as they fly from point to point.

Be patient

Put off your engine while sighting wildlife

Keeping the noisy car engine can be annoying. Your chances of spotting wildlife become limited because most of them get scared off. Some wildlife species in the parks or reserve behave in a manner that once irritating sound comes out, they walk/run away. To have amazing sight of these creatures, have your self-drive vehicle off engine and lights should also be off. As well, avoid hooting as this can easily scare off most of the wildlife species which might be of your interest while on self-drive tour.
