Transportation
taxi.jpgTaxis are available in Mombasa and Nairobi. Prices are usually reasonable, but ask about the fare to your destination first.

Buses offer transportation throughout Kenya, with the exception of parks and reserves. Private vehicles known as matatus also serve as bus services in many areas. Prices are cheap, but that’s where the advantages end. They tend to be overcrowded, and are not known for their safety.

Driving in Kenya is on the left, giving way to traffic from the right at intersections. driver National drivers licenses are valid for 90 days. International drivers licenses are recommended. Once you get out of the cities and off the major highways, be prepared for roads in poor conditions. Upgrades to roads can be many years apart, and the rainy seasons have a tendency to wash out large sections. Be prepared for drives to be slow and tiring when you hit these bad sections.
