  • A Matatu Ride in Nairobi City
    Having said that the fancy Buses are not found in every bus stage in the city, we shall start by going to the stage where they are found. We have several bus stations with this kind of buses but we shall stick to Pipeline/Embakasi Bus station which has new buses on the road now and then. We shall start our itenary from 11am to 1pm when there is no much traffic on the roads. Pipeline/Embakasi bus station is right opposite the National Archives therefore you can be dropped at the national archives by your designated driver or an uber. i shall pick you up and we head right to the bus station. The buses usually queue there as passengers board. we shall have a look at all the fancy ones, take photos, get inside to have a look and even ask questions in that regard. That will take around 15min. we shall then board one of them, the best of them all and wait for it to fill up so we can ride with it around town. As we ride, if the loud music won't be too loud i shall give a brief history of the Matatus. The ride will take approximately 20 min, therefore we shall alight at some point and take another one back to the city. That will be another 20min therefore the whole experience will take about an hour. Having experienced that, we shall take a 10min walk to the iconic KICC building where we shall take some photos. Other things to note Come dressed in casual sporty.
