An overland journey is a self reliant journey to remote destinations with camping as the principal form of a accommodation . An overland trip can last for weeks, months or even years extending beyond national borders into other countries. For a safe and comfortable overland trip, you will require a good off-road adventure vehicle which is capable for handling all types of terrain including gravel surfaces.
There are plenty of overland vehicles in Uganda available for hire but the Land cruiser models stand out as the perfect off-road adventure vehicles and in this article we will show some reason why you should hire a Land cruiser in Uganda for an exceptional overland trip around the Pearl of Africa.
Off-road vehicle features
The Land cruisers are characterized by their great off-road features that include large deep-open tread tires that give the station wagon a high ground clearance and when coupled with a flexible suspension gives the car that inside comfort as you wont feel any road bumps along the way. These distinctive features also allow the Land cruisers to traverse through deeper waters like small water channels or floodwaters so you can be assured you will get where you are going safely and arrive on time
Full Time 4-Wheel Drive
Another reason why you should hire a Land cruiser for your next Uganda overland adventure is the fact that Land cruisers possess a full time four-wheel drive mechanism meaning you wont have to do a lot to kick in that extra power shaft when traversing a steep slope or slippery surface as the engine will automatically transfer torque to all 4 wheels as soon as a wheel slip is detected.
Spacious cargo space
Overland trips use camping as accommodation as earlier mentioned and as such involves carrying alot of all luggage that includes passenger cargo as well as camping gear. Almost all the Land cruiser models feature a huge cabin for cargo in the rear with some having a cargo rack on the roof top. You can easily fit you cargo & camping gear in the rear and some on the roof to get that adequate legroom for a comfortable overland trip in Uganda.
