Regional buses

Busses and matatus are the main form of transport for most people in Kenya. Here a medium sized city bus hurries through the street in Nairobi, Kenya

Probably needless to say, when being at a place with many people travelling, packing suitcases, buying food and drinks for the journey etc. – you should always be alert regarding your possesions and money as thiefs in such busy places have an advantage. Also the risk of accidents on the road should be taken into consideration before embarking on the local busses. Usually it’s safe and everything will be just fine, but driving at night is generally a “no go” in developing countries, where street lights are often non existant and people take on the road with donkeys, horses, cows, sheep, dogs and slow wagons.
