About the cars

Our Buhanka & Toyota Hilux campervans are equipped with a second battery which charges off the alternator as you drive. This means that you can enjoy the luxuries of a cold beer, milk in your coffee and even charge your electronics while out in the wilderness for up to 72hrs (depending on usage). Thanks to the solar panels you can even stay longer than that. Once you get back on the road, the battery will be charging and usable again.

Our Lada Nivas are equipped with a 12V plug, with a dual USB charging port attached for charging simple devices such as phones, tablets, or anything which you have a 12V charging adaptor for. It is recommended to only charge your devices while driving due to the risk of running the battery flat.

Route planning

Taking a taxi in Georgia is super easy and relatively cheap. We recommend downloading the following apps to hail a taxi. They also work from the airport and you won’t have the stress of negotiating a price with the drivers. 

With the following links you’ll get a discount on your first ride!

Bolt Taxi
Yandex Go

There are several apps that can help you navigate in the cities and the countryside. Below are a few which we recommend based on our experience.

Maps.me – For offline maps, hikes, off-road, villages. Maps of the region can be downloaded in advance and you can do simple route planning. Not very suitable to plan a longer route, though it will sometimes suggest interesting ‘detours’. Don’t rely on this entirely, especially on its time estimates.

Yandex Navi – For navigating in the major cities, planning longer trips. Great for time estimates and finding more functional routes, but will lead you down strange tacks every now and then. iOSAndroid

Google Maps – When you’re not in the car, Google Maps is your best friend. It has the most listings of locations, business, and so on. It’s functional for route-planning and time indications are pretty accurate most of the time.

Yes you can! All our cars are 4×4 and are built to drive the sometimes difficult roads to these remote regions. Keep in mind a few things though:

  • Driving offroad can take a lot longer than Google Maps will tell you. You should not drive off-road in the dark.
  • Roads can be blocked by landslides, snow, rain or construction – be sure to inform upfront with us or locals if certain mountain passes are passable. 
  • Don’t think you can head straight from the airport to a remote area. You will need some time to get used to the car, do some grocery shopping, make stops along the way. 
  • If you don’t like steep drop-offs and muddy roads, it’s best to avoid certain areas. Good news is that a lot of nice places are perfectly reachable over asphalt and generally OK unpaved roads.

Georgia is a great country to make a road trip, and with these tips we will try to help you make the most of it! We’re always glad to answer any questions you may have about planning your trip, the regions to visit, etc. 

Some general points to take into consideration:

  • Don’t plan too much: you’re on a holiday and not in a race. Your trip will likely be full of surprises and unforeseen events. Whether that be a local that invites you to their home and offers just a little bit too much wine, a breakdown of the car or heavy weather circumstances. Make a global plan and don’t try to cram too much in the time you have – or you will only be driving and stressed to make it to your destination.
  • Be flexible with your route and plans: sometimes it’s nice to stay a day extra at a certain place, or divert your route in case of bad weather. 
  • If you find yourself with some time left at the end of the trip it is easy to find an extra destination to explore, all within a few hours from Tbilisi or Kutaisi.
