Kisumu in detail

Getting Around

Boda-Boda & Tuk-Tuk

Both boda-bodas and tuk-tuks (motorised minitaxis) have proliferated and they are a great way to get around Kisumu. A trip to Hippo Point should be no more than KSh60/180 for a boda-boda/tuk-tuk.


Matatus 7 and 9, which travel along Oginga Odinga Rd and Jomo Kenyatta Hwy, are handy to reach the main matatu station, main market and Kibuye Market – just wave and hop on anywhere you see one.


A taxi around town costs between KSh150 and KSh250, while trips to Dunga range from KSh300 to KSh450, with heavy bargaining.
