Getting There & Away
The Upper Bus Stand deals with sporadic buses and a plethora of matatus to destinations north and west of Nyeri including Nanyuki (KSh250, one hour), Nyahururu (KSh350, 1¼ hours) and Nakuru (KSh550, 2½ hours).
From the Lower Bus Stand, matatus head in all directions south and east including Thika (KSh300, two hours) and Nairobi (KSh500, 2½ hours).
If you are without transport and want to explore the area surrounding Nyeri, head to the local matatu stand.
Matatu prices are always negotiable, so don't be afraid to shop around if you are on a tight budget.
