The most comprehensive travel guide to Africa      

Going by minibus

If you travel by local transport in- and around the cities and bigger towns it is usually very cheap. The main transportation devices in most African cities and towns are busses (in kenya called Matatus) – Nissan or Toyota 12-14 seater minibusses, that will take you almost anywhere within the city limit for less than a dollar.

On some longer journeys there are also the option of getting a seven seater taxi, which is a bit more expensive than a Matatu but you will have your own comfortable seat and since it only takes seven people, it won’t take as long as a matatu to fill up with passengers (The matatus will only leave when full).
