Getting there and away, Getting around by Air, Train, Bus, Car, Motorcycle, Boat, Hitchhiking, Bicycle ... It is pretty easy to come around in Kenya. The Matatu s are connecting all the cities with each other, they are flexible and also the price is not too expensive. Compared to other East african countries Kenyan authorities passed a law 3-4 years ago to limit the passengers in the vehicles, somehow speed regulation (80kph) and that the destination and number of the vehicle have to be written on the car. this law restricts them to carry only 14 passangers( in Tanzania the Dhalla Dhallas for example if it still fits- it fits with 24 passangers->chicken bus)Nowadays they also have booking offices and somehow fixed prices but dont pay the mzungo price!! I traveled almost erverytime with the matatus! But also the major bus companies like Akamba coastline Eldoret Scandinavia and so on are another option especially for traveing from nairobi/mombasa to other capitals like Dar es saalam or Kampala. For me the best mode of travel inside Kenya was the railway. These trains have cabins with sleeping couch and go overnight. but unfortunatly they are only connecting Kisumu-Nairobi-Mombasa and only three times a week. ok flying around kenya is also possible and fast but i never did it because of my low budget..cheers and enjoy this beautiful country!!!
