Going by Boda boda – or bicycle taxi

The Boda bodas in Kisumu are nowadays being challenged by the introduction of the Indian and Chinese Tuk Tuks which are faster but more noisy and less charming

Boda bodas – or bicycle taxis is a cheap and charming way of transport with the benefit of getting a chance to hold a conversation with some of the locals as well as allowing them to earn a small income at the same time. Boda bodas are to be found in most towns and villages around Kenya, exept in Nairobi where heavy traffic dont allow bicycles on the streets. Of course one can bring (or buy locally) your own bicycle and bike from town to town in Africa, though safety on the African roads is not very high.
