Before setting up my Tour program for kenya I had the same idea of hiring a car but driving myself. The Tour Company that I dealt with gave me some prices for different vehicles and the cheapest was Suzuki going for USD 72 per day. With a driver they were charging USD 15 extra for his allowance. Though i didnt go for that choice, I ended up booking for an organised trip. You can contact them if you need more details

Hello John,
You have picked an interesting place at an intersting time. The weather around January is very ideal for travel. If you are planning a safari, Uganda is ideal.I don't know what you are planing exactly but for that period of time(4 Weeks)t would be better to have a company oganise the trip for you because they will plan a realistic itinerary for you. They also usualy offer the Car and driver together as past of the package. Im more thatn willing to give you more information if you are interested. you can mail me and i will give you all the information.
I hope this serves you well.

How many persons are you travelling with? If alone then a small 4 x 4 vehicle is sufficient for e.g Pajeros. A van would be too large for you. Depending up on no of days hire you can get competitive rates.
