Getting There & Away

Some buses call into the Shell petrol station in the centre of town on their way to and from Nairobi and Mombasa. Buses to Nairobi arrive roughly every hour, though there is no set schedule; expect to pay between KSh200 and KSh400.

If you are in a rush, better to head south to the bus and matatu stand where numerous services depart for Chogoria (KSh300, 1½ hours), Meru (KSh450, two hours), Thika (KSh300, two hours), Nyeri (KSh320, two hours), Nanyuki (KSh400, 3½ hours), Nyahururu (KSh600, five hours), Nairobi (KSh400, three hours) and Nakuru (KSh750, six hours).
