Welcome to the Land Rover Uganda Club.
The club is for everyone who owns, drives, or just interested in any of the Land Rover models. It caters for all models from Series I right through to the current Defender, Discovery, Range Rover and Freelander in all their different guises.
The Land Rover Uganda Club was established by a group of seven Land Rover enthusiasts who shared an interest in four wheel driving and the great outdoors: Simon Kaheru, Ronnie Kyazze, Kampikaho Anthony, Mark Kaheru, Richard Maitum, Marx Rukundo and Kashillingi Hussein.
These became the Founder members of the Club who worked together to have the Club registered in Uganda as a Company Limited by Guarantee and also acquire some assets to help in the future running of the Club even before it was fully incorporated. These later on elected and vetted the Committee to manage and run the activities of the Club.
It is not important that you even own a Land Rover, you may just be thinking about buying one, and would like some unbiased information. Our Club is the right place for you to join.
The Club organises day, weekend and extended trips to satisfy various interests of the wide range of membership and cater for the novice through to the experienced driver.
The club is a source of valuable information through the experiences of our members, links with the Land Rover enthusiasts, reliable mechanics, vehicle and equipment suppliers.
Do we confine ourselves to Land Rovers only? No we don’t. In fact, you don’t even have to own a Land Rover to belong to the club. You just need to have an interest in them. We welcome owners of other four-wheel drive vehicles in our club. We even have many members who don’t own Land Rovers.
We promote our adventures primarily through the internet, i.e. on our website, Facebook page and Group. Our Club website is used as an up-to-date information source for Club members and enthusiasts.
An elected committee manages the club; the various activities are organised and run by volunteer members.
