Transport in Kenya 2/3

There is a huge variety of transport in Kenya. This page and the last show some of the different types.

A bicycle with a seat on the back for hire is called a boda-boda. Apparently this word comes from English via Uganda, where people with bicycles would carry passengers from the border with Kenya to the border with Rwanda.

With a cover and a motor, it's a tuktuk in Asia; it probably is in Africa too.

Here boda-boda drivers wait outside a hotel in Nakuru.

Private vans which pick people up anywhere on their routes are called Matatu. They are supposed to have a yellow stripe. Our driver tried to avoid driving near them. He said the accident rate for these is very high.

Truck drivers can make a side income, too.

And Kenya has a national airline.
