Only use recognised taxis, the use of shared ‘van taxis’ is not recommended for travellers.

Car Hire

It is recommended to hire a car with driver who will be far better equipped to deal with the road conditions in the country.


Driving is on the right.  Drivers must be extremely careful of bad road conditions and unexpected hazards on the road such as pedestrians and animals.


Road conditions in the country are poor and landmines remain a serious danger.  Many areas of the countryside, including secondary roads and bridges are heavily mined.  Travellers should be aware of possible banditry.

Local drivers may often be under the influence of alcohol, especially at weekends when roads can become particularly hazardous.
