From Arusha to Nairobi

Postby myadvent » Thu May 02, 2013 12:44 am

Hello all, I'm on the trip through Kenya and Tanzania starting June 21. We end in Arusha yet my plane leaves from Nairobi the next day. How is that bus trip north? Anyone else having to travel Arusha to Nairobi with tips on that transit?

Some in our group took the bus and said it was great. We opted to fly from Kili airport to Nairobi and it was good, too. Given the choice again I'd probably take the bus. Not sure what trip you're doing but we did DKTW and the trip between the first and second week was Nairobi to Arusha and it was by small bus. We hadn't considered that when we booked the flight back to Nairobi at the end. We had researched public buses and this isn't exactly like that. Our guide was on the bus Arusha to Nairobi because he was going back to meet the next group so those who went by bus got to spend a bit more time with him and they had fun.

I am on the same trip. The transpo between Arusha back to Nairobi seemed to be quite a hassle, so I just booked my return flight from JRO to London. Looking forward to the trek! :D
