After a year in the country, Ian Williams, the director of Kampala International School, knows why Uganda is called the Pearl of Africa.
He loves visiting different tourist sites in the country in his Toyota Prado. Williams goes to Jinja often and has been to Murchison Falls and Lake Bunyonyi.
â€œI like this model 1999 Prado because it is high and makes it easier for me to have a good view, especially when I am in the game park,â€ says Williams.
He says the carâ€™s strength, accentuated by its four-wheel-drive, takes him to the different community projects he is involved in. Williams says he finds driving in Uganda exciting due to the amazing natural features.
He says he opted for the Prado because of its strength and ability to drive through bad roads. He uses the carrier on top to transport some of his cargo.
While in England, Williams drives a Seat Alhambra car, built for a smooth driving.
â€œI had to change cars to suit the Ugandan roads,â€ says Williams.
Williams does not use the CD player in his car because he listens to music on his Ipod.
He likes European songs of the1980s and 90s and Shakira.
On the local scene, Williams enjoys listening to Ndere Troupe and a few other artistes but has not picked favourites yet.
