Getting There & Away
There are numerous matatus that run from the Bus & Matatu Station to Nakuru (KSh220, 1¼ hours) and Nyeri (KSh350, 1¾ hours) until late afternoon. Less plentiful are services to Naivasha (KSh400, two hours), Nanyuki (KSh420, three hours) and Nairobi (KSh500, 3½ hours). The occasional morning matatu reaches Maralal (KSh600, four hours).
Several early-morning buses also serve Nairobi (KSh450, three hours).
Don't be afraid to haggle or shop around for the best-priced matatu.
