Public and private motatus (van taxi's) travel from Nairobi and all other towns. The trip from Nairobi can take 4-6 hours depending on traffic and road conditions.

Eldoret International Airport has regular flights from Nairobi for around 6000Ksh one way.

Get around[edit]

Local motatus (van taxis) can be hailed on the roadside and travel to outer neighbourhoods. There is no route map that tourists can refer to so it's best to ask a local which motatu to use. Prices can range from 20Ksh upwards.
